  • Ever feel guilty about your desire to invest multiple millions in a luxurious beachfront Hamptons property? Put that guilt aside. Welcome to the era of eco-luxe.

    This sleek $14.995 million "modern masterpiece" is designed to help you make other people feel guilty for not living there. With the seven bedrooms and 10 full bathrooms (and two half-baths) comes a healthy dose of self-righteousness. As you lounge in your "beautiful bluestone-surrounded heated pool," tell your guests that the "green" habitation, as the Sotheby's listing says, "blends interior and exterior." It may not look it, but from an ecological standpoint, the ultra-modern house actually fits quite well in its surroundings. It's not part of the problem, you can tell friends, but part of the solution.

    If they're not buying that, gently remind them that the architect is also a surfer, yogi, and "meditator." He gets the environment. Spend some quiet time on your "zen" acre of "private" and "landscaped" property and you will, too. — William Alden
