There are houses with a past and houses with a fun story. This has both. Step back to late 80's /early 90s and imagine a very famous fashion photographer falling so in love with a property that he lived on the land for one year so that he could decide how to build the house according to the moon rising and the sun setting. His vision was to build a house part French Chateau that he grew up in, twinned with the conveniences of an American beach house. Fast forward to multiple fashion shoots for Victoria Secret and location settings for movies and TV series such as Damages where Glen Close declares 'this is the most beautiful house in the world' and where she wanted to have her ashes scattered. Built by Jacques Malignon, The Osprey House, he said, is all about the light. Another high fashion figure and known for spotting a trend bought and owns up to 60+ acres almost 2 decades ago, with fabulous designed gardens, across the Forge River and is very involved in preserving and protecting surrounding water. Cut to today where the current owner reluctantly must move on but has lovingly enhanced this 3.5 acre private property with a well-built 4 bedroom home with large scale windows and French doors everywhere allowing one to enjoy swimming right outside the Living Room in the oversized gunite heated pool built-in to the deck. One can stroll just a bit further to the private beach and the pristine bay just beyond or.. for some socializing, you can access the nearby local Holiday Beach with your private coded key. Besides all the wonderful external features and amenities, your experience in the house makes you feel as if you're on a perpetual vacation. From the front entrance, you immediately enter a double height Living Room and a wall of glass windows bringing in the sea and endless sky. You'll want to just stop there and take it all in or go left and enter the open dining/kitchen area which has access to the decks and covered porch with outdoor dining beyond. Alternatively, you can also choose to hang out or work in the den / office which also has access to the deck and pool /spa area. 2 additional bedrooms and 2 bathrooms are also on this level. Up one flight you will find the Primary Suite on one side of the house with a large bathroom with terrazzo floors throughout, floating tub and extra dressing room all which provide access to decks from these spaces and views to take your breath away. There is one additional large guest bedroom as well on the other side of the house with another massive en-suite bathroom and another large deck. A center room with another deck over the front door offers a den /lounge / reading spot with water views. There is another desk area with reading nook nearby as well. All in all, a haven for creative thinking, writing or simply...a fabulous respite from the everyday noise. This location is a best kept secret. It's the Hamptons without the traffic. Your own private getaway halfway between NYC, airports and the Hamptons beyond. It has it all; fabulous restaurants, beaches, parks, boating, and fishing. A wonderful and safe community. Room for tennis and expansion. $5.5M
