The recent sale of a newly built estate crushed every record north of the highway in Water Mill—here's why.
Welcome to 989 Deerfield Road, a place where opulence and minimalism fuse in the most cohesive of ways to create a standout abode that’s better described as a work of art than a house. Complete with six bedrooms and six full and three half bathrooms, the 10,000-square-foot dwelling, built by M & M Custom Homes and sold by Bespoke Real Estate, sits atop 0.92 acres, with sweeping reserve and farm field views from every room.
989 Deerfield Road provides ample space for comfortable living as well as entertaining. The newly constructed home features a double-height entry in the foyer, a lounge on the second level and a massive workout room fit for a full gym setup.
Here, clean lines and simple designs complement masterfully executed architecture and landscape design. Similarly, towering floor-to-ceiling windows welcome inside picturesque views while a flood of natural light illuminates the space.
Derek Axelrod of DA Project Management oversaw the project, ensuring that no detail was overlooked in the process. Axelrod notes, “My favorite thing about the home is the simplicity, modern design and clutter-free look, which I enjoy in my own life.” This trending minimalist aesthetic is exactly what attracted the home’s now-residents during a time when life as we once knew it became more turbulent than ever. “It went to contract right after the new year in the middle to end of the quarantine and COVID craziness,” he adds. The last ask was $10.45 million, and the sale price was very close to that.
The finished product of this endeavor is as impressive as Axelrod’s reputation in the industry. In the kitchen, gorgeous lava stone adorns the center island, and with ease, the room seamlessly flows into the pristine, formal dining and living rooms. On the second level, the primary bedroom exudes clean, black-and-white palette complemented by hues of green from the surrounding landscape that peeks through the windows.
Step outside and you’ll be greeted by the luxe, heated gunite pool adjacent to the patio, which is equipped with a fireplace, an attached outdoor kitchen and a topnotch sound system, all situated on flooring made of ultradurable leathered outdoor limestone pavers.
Apart from the home’s enviable specs, its clean, warm aesthetic is what makes 989 Deerfield Road highly distinguished. It’s a true Hamptons haven through and through.
