Once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to acquire a trophy property at an incredible price. Due to relocation our clients are making Arc House available for $3,899,000. This is your chance to own one of the most architecturally significant homes on the planet.
Arc House is a contemporary masterpiece and East Hampton’s premier modern architectural wonder. The vision of renowned architect Maziar Behrooz, this AIA Award Winning estate quality home is inspired by a fusion of Eastern elegance and dramatic postmodern Western style and built to meet LEED standards.
Constructed in 2010, Arc House encompasses 6,400 square feet of dramatic glass, steel, and concrete space set on 2.62 sprawling acres of landscaped perfection. It has 4 exquisite bedrooms, 3 radiant heat floored baths, 4-car garage, spa, sauna, fitness center, 1000-bottle wine storage area, and a wood burning fireplace that make Arc House a true consideration for connoisseurs of visionary architecture and East Hampton prestige.
Bulgarian limestone, black walnut and apple-wood, steel, and leather are a testament to the outstanding quality of the design elements and materials of Arc House.
Its 16-foot high, 2,048 square foot steel-master arch creates an organic channel for light. Because of the physics of the central arch, which is Behrooz’s representation of the rising sun and the crescent moon, Arc House is column-free giving this sun-drenched space a pure, loft-like feel.
Every detail has been considered in the master suite. Spend evenings reading in bed with a glowing backdrop from the in-room fireplace. Impeccably integrating surfaces of horizontal-grain American Apple and a magnificent stainless steel culinary center, the chef’s kitchen is every gourmand’s dream and is able to accommodate the needs of any size dinner reception you hold. Of course all appliances are the best available including Sub Zero, Wolf, and Fisher Paykel.
A masterfully incorporated floating staircase, which is cantilevered off a cement slab on one side utilizes industrial cable on the other adding yet another extraordinary aesthetic to Arc House.
Reflecting pools at the base of either end of the arch are an additional example of form meets function as both serve as cisterns to capture rainwater that is then filtered and brought back into the home’s recycling systems.
The awe-inspiring driveway utilizes Belgian block stones with natural grass grouting to compliment and accentuate the landscape making the grounds entrance blend in with the surroundings, transforming a pathway into an aesthetic, functioning work of art.
No expense has been spared to give you your own private botanical sanctuary. Chinese temple trees, cut-leaf red Japanese maple, thread-branched cypresses, moss juniper groundcover, native white pine, and Zen and vegetable gardens punctuate the surroundings. Visible from the master suite sits a 1,200 pound plinth-like stone cut from an Alaskan Glacier.The immaculate landscaping blends perfectly with the demesne.
ARC HOUSE INFRASTUCTURE
Behrooz’s commitment to the green lifestyle is evident through the use of state-of-the-art, cutting edge technology. A geothermal system regulates the temperature and humidity resulting in energy usage significantly less than that of a house of a similar size. All glass walls are hurricane-proof giving you the security and comfort level you require.
Showings will be by appointment only, so that the discerning purchaser is given the private attention they demand.
Finally, renderings and plans for a resort-like pool and a screening room will be made available with purchase.
