This Week's Best Beach House

Malibu on Noyac Bay

Sag Harbor – Bayfront

October 3, 2016

If you have ever been to one of the homes in Malibu along the western side of the Pacific Coast Highway, you undoubtedly know the exhilaration of passing through one of their front doors and walking into a fantasy. Behind you, the omnipresent hustle and bustle along the PCH; in front of you, through glass doors at the far end of the room, is nothing but a huge swath of blue/green ocean. Shut the door, and any trace of noise is gone. Any sense of cars speeding by is lost. The affect is dramatic and instantaneous. One world behind you. Another completely new world a few steps ahead, so close you can touch it. Talk about a transformation!

Noyac Road is no Pacific Highway. Traffic on this nine-mile stretch from Sag Harbor to North Sea Road in Southampton is sporadic and somewhat more gentle, something appropriately suited to the back roads of a resort. Yet, it’s there. But Aman Developers took to this .40 acre parcel, and with great mastery, shielded the 6,500 square foot house from the road and designed a beach house, which is nothing less than a stunning and remarkable testimonial to the whole notion of highest and best use of land.

The landscaping on the property is genius, shielding Noyac Road from view upon entering the driveway. But walk through the front door and everything changes. My first thought: “Am I in Malibu?!” In front of me, through a wall of retractable glass doors, a huge swath of blue/green, this time from Noyac Bay. There are no barriers or visual obstructions to the view. Just water! I wasn’t there for sunset, but I might as well have been because it was so easy to imagine and anticipate, especially once I stepped-out onto the Mahogany deck and gazed at my surroundings.

The house, completed in March 2016, has three levels, seven bedrooms and seven and one-half baths, including a main-level junior master suite. Designed in the traditional cedar-shingle style, the thoughtful attention given to every detail and to all of the finishes is extraordinary. The color palette used by the developer struck me as soothing and unusual…a panoply of soft, muted tones successfully connecting all the rooms of the house and allowing for an interplay between the sweet, natural light that fills the house and the water views. The six inch wide, white oak flooring used throughout the house warms and enhances this overall affect.

Upon entering, the giant chef’s kitchen is off to the right. The handsome custom cabinetry was crafted by Woodmode, and [very] top-of-the-line appliances were chosen. The room sizes on all three levels are generous with an open feeling, most with views to the bay. The living room has a beautiful fireplace. The coffered-ceiling dining room has double glass doors leading out to the deck. Out back, on the ground level overlooking the bay, is a heated gunite pool surrounded by 2,500 square feet of blue stone and Mahogany. And, from there, a staircase leading down to the bay beach.

This beach house is a proud achievement for its developers. It appears nothing was spared in terms of quality and design, with the future purchaser’s lifestyle, comfort and peace-of-mind at hand. Bravo!!
