A Hamptons house designed for maximum energy efficiency and sustainability has hit the market.

The home at 7 Candace Drive in East Quogue is the first property using passive house design elements to be offered for sale in the Hamptons. Its energy-efficient features include 360-degree poly-iso insulation, energy recovery ventilation and a solar power supplementation system. It’s listed for $4.5 million.

Passive house (or “passivhaus”) standards were first developed in Germany. The specifications require buildings to use very low levels of energy, usually through the use of insulation and systems that heat and cool the home more efficiently.

The 7,000-square-foot East Quogue house is newly built, and has seven bedrooms, six full bathrooms and two half-bathrooms. Other features include a home theater, wine cellar and heated infinity-edge saltwater pool. The property is 3.2 acres and is close to a nature preserve.

Compass’ Antonio Bottero is the listing agent.

New York has a handful of passive house developments, both commercial and residential. The city’s first passive house was constructed in Park Slope in 2012, and the Cornell Tech campus on Roosevelt Island is home to a 26-story energy-efficient building. An office building in Long Island City is expected to be the largest structure of its kind built to passive house standards when it’s completed.

Hamptons homes have been flying off the market as buyers hunt for a retreat. The number of transactions that closed during the first quarter was 48 percent higher than during the same period in 2020.
