The Andrew Geller 'Antler House' is a turn-key, fully-restored luxury beach house and one-of-a-kind work of art. Andrew Geller was not only the preeminent midcentury architect for beach houses on Long Island, but one of the most important mid century architects in the world. Affectionately coined 'The Architect of Happiness', some of the common exaltations of Geller's work include 'whimsical, breathtaking, playful, breezy, joyful, original, and dream houses'. Geller was truly a dreamer who believed his mission was to 'liberate the American vacation house'. Every one of his homes was a portrait with unique form, emphasis on context, and a Bauhaus-inspired signature style that transformed domestic space into abstract sculptural art. Today, more than ever, Geller's work is coming into full appreciation and no house has been more at the forefront of this awakening than 'The Antler House'. Designed and built in 1968, the Antler House is perhaps the most inventive and playful of all Geller's beach houses. The heart of the home is the expansive great room with cedar-paneled cathedral ceilings, walls of glass, and an open floor plan. The perfect place for entertaining, it is perched on the 2nd floor with iconic 'owl eye' floor to ceiling windows which frame and capture the sunrise, sunset, and idyllic forest views. The iconic pitched double-height ceiling and walls of glass create a spiritual connection to the outdoors. The great room opens up to a large raised deck, set within the surrounding treetops to continue the celebration of indoor/outdoor living with outdoor seating, cooking, and access to the yard. A bonus loft area above the 2nd floor has marvelous treetop views. This delightful space evokes the whimsy of a tree house with its floor to ceiling windows and geometric 'origami' roofline. Situated on the ground floor, the bedrooms receive the benefits of 'upside down' houses where you sleep close to the earth and refresh your circadian rhythm. The primary bedroom has an ensuite bathroom, iconic floor to ceiling 'kite' window, and private entrance with deck. Everywhere you look, magical and practical moments come together with triangle glass windows for peek-a-boo views, hide-a-way nooks for children of all ages, and double carport to keep your classic rides safe. Escapism, connection to nature, and an untamed spirit is what the design of the Antler House celebrates most of all. The setting of the Antler House is second to none. Just two blocks from Napeague Bay and one of the best family beaches in all of the Hamptons (Louse Point), the Antler House is an easy 5- minute bike ride to swimming, kayaking, and paddle boarding. This home is much more than just a world class beach house, with it's lush setting on a flag lot with over 1.1 acres of oak forest surrounding the property provides total privacy, security, and escapism for all seasons. Andrew Geller was a conservationist at heart and believed that no home should ever occupy more than 20% of the lot. 'Bigger', said Geller, 'is not always better...' The indigenous landscape provides a 'womb around the home' and was carefully designed to protect as well as celebrate the natural beauty of the Hamptons. The iconic 'owl eye windows' are placed up high to mimic the trees and woodland creatures, as well as to frame and capture the majesty of the rising and setting sun. The property is across the street from a nature preserve for hiking, mountain biking, or just plain getting lost. The Antler House was completely restored and gut renovated to better than new condition with an eye towards luxury in 2020 while maintaining the integrity of this midcentury masterpiece. To ensure this work of art was protected, Andrew Geller's grandson was hired as a historic consultant for the project, working side by side with the new architect, builder, and designer. The Antler House is both a journey and a destination to celebrate, create forever memories, and even spark the imagination.
