For the contrarian, this sleek habitation sits in sufficient opposition to the landscape. If you've always wanted a country home but wished the country were less ... country, this is the place for you.
Beach time can be overwhelming for anyone. At 129 Dune Road, if you can't handle "the sound of crashing waves," you can easily find relief in the building's "superior sound system," according to the Douglas Elliman listing. If the thought of climbing a cantilevered staircase causes stress, you can always ascend to the second floor by elevator.
The property enjoys 100 feet of ocean frontage, but we all know that's just for looking. The "sandy beach" and "ocean beyond" are best appreciated from the safety of the second-floor master bedroom with its dual bathrooms, dressing rooms and hot-tub-equipped terrace.
We're a bit skeptical, though, when the listing says the master suite is "concealed behind a glass-walled balcony." If you don't know much about nature, at least brush up on natural laws governing glass and light. We wouldn't want you confused in cocktail party conversation with crunchier Hamptons neighbors. —William Alden
