Amid all the activity in the Hamptons’ new construction market, a luxury development that broke ground in recent months in Bridgehampton found a void to fill—the $3 million price point, where there is much demand but few choices.
While it seems that many new builds on the East End are either million-dollar townhouses or seven-figure estates, this project—Barn & Vine—is focused on filling a long-ignored market niche. The 35-home development offers houses starting at $2,750,000 and each property includes a 20’-by-40’ gunite pool and two-car garage. Concierge services from the firm Chaloners of the Hamptons are included as well—those can run the gamut from child care or a personal chef to stocking the fridge before the weekend and even getting reservations at top Hamptons restaurants for residents, the first of whom are expected to move in at the beginning of 2015.
“It’s really giving people their own Hamptons experience at a price point that is unheard of in the Hamptons,” says Terry Thompson, the Douglas Elliman Real Estate agent who is the co-exclusive salesperson in the Hamptons for Barn & Vine, along with Aaron Curti. (In Manhattan, Douglas Elliman’s team of Fredrik Eklund and John Gomes, of Bravo’s Million Dollar Listing New York, has the exclusive—look for Barn & Vine on the show this May.)
Potential buyers can choose from a number of different designs—which range from approximately 6,000 to 7,200 square feet of living space. For buyers to further make homes their own, five interior design schemes by Jordan Carlyle Designs are available. Each house comes with a designer landscape plus a kitchen package that includes top-of-the-line appliances, and purchasers can opt-in for enhancements such as a pool house, wine cellar and elevators.
The name Barn & Vine itself reflects the agricultural history of the area, and the fact the community borders the Channing Daughters vineyard. The development spans 50 acres, though a number of acres are deeded back to the town as open space to be preserved in perpetuity, or are part of a conservation easement that will ensure they stay green and beautiful.
Barn & Vine came to be through a partnership between the Hicksville-based firm Pinewood Development and Manhattan’s Continental Ventures. The
principals of the partnership, named Continental Pinewood Development Partners, are Jane Gol, the president of Continental Ventures, Amir Chaluts, the
Continental Ventures CEO, and Uri Hason, the president and founder of Pinewood Development.
David Hason, Uri’s son and the project operations manager for Pinewood, considers their developments to be their legacy, a legacy that lives in every detail of a home, from the inner-wall and under-floor work customers never get to see, to the finishes. “We think that we are putting together a product of quality, of value for where we are,” he says, “and we’re enhancing the neighborhood.”
