Voted “Amerca’s Most Beautiful Village” by National Geographic, East Hampton has much to offer. And while the pristine beaches, considerable cultural offerings and small-town vibes are big draws for the seasonal crowds, East Hampton Real Estate Co. Founder Robert Zecher feels that there’s still untapped potential there.
The Village resident, who fell in love with the village’s charm and natural resources, believes that there’s much more to the upscale enclave than just the summertime. An active member of the local community, he sees opportunity for growth and new direction.
Robert Zecher: “Being a Real Estate Developer in both Manhattan and the Hamptons my clients split their time between both markets. I am seeing a paradigm shift toward clients placing a higher value on the quality of life that having a Hampton’s residence affords them.”
The former Shearman and Sterling LLP attorney and global real estate development executive, whose resume includes works on some of the world’s marquee developments, believes that fine-tuning and redeveloping some of the village’s key estate section parcels will benefit all. To that end, he has teamed up with venerable East Hampton architecture firm, Fleetwood & McMullan, and Phil Kauffman Builders to construct a masterful new and modernized version of the classic shingle-style home at 68 Egypt Lane.
Located on one of the village’s most prestigious streets and quite close to the exclusive Maidstone Club as well as ocean beaches, shops and restaurants the turnkey $8,850,000 property, which has been in the same family for generations, overlooks a 34-acre nature reserve. Beautifully sited on the property is a 6,000-square-foot new construction masterpiece featuring top-of-the-line amenities, plus six bedrooms, seven full- and two half baths; a 44-foot heated infinity-edge Gunite pool with waterfall; heated and air-conditioned 14-foot-by-13-foot pool cabana; and dazzling sunset views.
Standout features at the luxe custom residence include a spacious and inviting floorplan and loads of natural light; radiant-heat floor; 3 fireplaces plus outdoor fireplace; Bakes and Kropp chef’s kitchen with Wolf Range, dual Sub-Zero refrigerator, built-in gourmet coffee machine, 18-inch wine refrigerator and two Cove dishwashers; spacious master suite with roofed terrace overlooking the reserve, a gas fireplace and elegant Calcutta marble bathroom; as well as a fully finished lower level with two guest bedrooms, laundry room, mudroom, powder room, recreation room and gym. Additional interior highlights include 7-inch-wide European oak floors imported from Spain; six zones of heating and cooling with Lenox HVAC; a sprinkler system designed for the art collector, with seven designated large-format hanging spaces. Built for entertaining, the home is completed with a two-car garage and six-car parking pad for guests.
