Costas Kondylis, one of the city’s most prolific modern architects and the subject of a documentary produced by The Real Deal, has put his Southampton home, dubbed Barn Noir, on the market. 

“The epitome of chic, the Black Barn offers a tremendous open living room and dining area with a double height cathedral barn beamed ceiling,” reads the Douglas Elliman listing.

The senior partner of Costas Kondylis and Partners – whose three-decade career was chronicled in the TRD-produced PBS feature “Treasures of New York: Building Stories” – is asking $3.8 million for the 4,000-square-foot onetime potato barn that now features four bedrooms and a garage “that can easily accommodate 3 cars and multiple motorcycles.”

Listing agent Raphael Avigdor said Kondylis bought the property in 2000 and renovated it in 2007.

“The grounds feature an apple orchard, small vineyard and a 60-foot Gunite-heated saltwater lap pool and Jacuzzi,” he told TRD in an email. “It is privately hedged.”

The home was last on the market in 2012, asking the same price.

Known as “the developer’s architect,” Kondylis has had a hand in designing more than 80 high-rises in New York, notably the Trump International Hotel and Tower in Columbus Circle as well as several of the towers at Trump Place and the Trump World Tower.
