More than 4.5 acres of artistically designed gardens incorporating Taoism, Confucianism and Buddhism, this Bridgehampton estate has to be seen to appreciate the unique concepts of design and creativity! A complex plan of gardens mindfully designed by Jian Guo Xu, a noted Chinese artist, and created by John Whitney, landscape and garden designer. The property’s feature garden structure with 500-year-old doors is a replica of a 15th century temple in Beijing. Winding paths, water gardens, bridges, stone sculptures, rocks, curved bridges, sitting areas, paths, trees and plantings are a masterful creation of Feng Shui design. Notable outdoor structures include an open-air pavilion adjacent to a koi pond, a pool/tea house with a full bath and shower and gazebo in the bamboo garden.

 

Viewed from the main house and set within the gardens is a spectacular lagoon-like two-level pool and spa surrounded by natural stone patios and walkways. Additional features are traditional moon gate, stone sculptures, inlaid paths and meditating gardens incorporated into the landscape. The 8,378 square foot house has 7 bedrooms, 7 baths and 5 half baths. First floor has a large central living room, dining room, kitchen, two master bedrooms and guest bedrooms. The upper floor has a living room and library while the finished lower level has a living area, bedrooms, bathroom, wine cellar and glass doors that open to the lower pool area. This unique botanical paradise is on the market for $6.99 million with Paul Brennan of Douglas Elliman.
