Do you wonder what $45 million will buy you these days in the Hamptons? You’ll have a pretty good idea after we tell you about 97 Mid Ocean Drive in Bridgehampton, just listed via Bespoke Real Estate. Ready to take notes?

First, we’re told that this “ultra-modern estate has achieved unprecedented standards in luxury architecture and interior design, while offering the pinnacle of opulent oceanfront living.” Collaborating on the 1.4-acre property are the developer Jay Bialsky, the Manhattan-based architecture and design firm Andre Kikoski Architect, and the landscape architect Edmund Hollander Design.

With deeded ocean access to a private section of Bridgehampton’s beaches, this state-of-the-art home has 10,000 square feet of interior space complemented by more than 12,000 square feet of exterior space. The expansive exterior space features multiple outdoor living areas including a covered kitchen and dining area, a landscaped rooftop deck, numerous outdoor lounges, custom infinity-edge pool, a fire pit, and an outdoor shower. The entire location is captured by entire walls of glass that provide sweeping panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean from nearly every room in the house, while sunset vistas over stunning Mecox Bay can be enjoyed from the rooftop deck.

The contemporary estate is characterized by a selection of the finest imported materials combined with top-of-the-line appliances, fixtures and hardware. “The house has exceptional levels of natural light, including a triple-height entrance atrium that features soaring floor-to-ceiling windows,” we are informed. “An ideal two-story arrangement, accessed by the glass encased stairs or elevator, provides a sophisticated well-thought-out plan to maximize oceanfront living. The layout encompasses six bedrooms, all with private en-suite bathrooms.” (Ready to pony up the actual ask of $44,900,000 yet?)

The first level hosts a family room, media room, large sauna, a two-bedroom guest wing, staff quarters, and two additional bedrooms all with en-suite facilities. The second level, which is considered to be the main level, is designed with 60-foot sliding glass walls overlooking the ocean, an open-concept living area that encompasses the gourmet kitchen with custom light oak cabinetry and quartz counters and pantry, living room, a dining room, and a wine cellar. The remainder of the second level offers a guest suite, office, and an opulent master suite with an entrance foyer, oversized dressing room, private terrace, palatial bathroom featuring a free-standing bathtub and a walk-in glass shower. The ground level offers ample storage space and a six-car garage.

If you’re thinking that shelling out $45 million might leave you a little strapped, don’t fret because Bridgehampton is a beehive of selling activity lately. New listings include 27 Cooks Lane and 20 Sellentin Way, both just listed by Corcoran. The first property, with a $2,950,000 price tag, is a 3-bedroom, 2-bath traditional, 1,800 square feet, with a heated pool on 1 acre. The second one is an 8-bed, 8-bath traditional, 5,000 square feet, on 0.6 acre with a pool. For this one, you’ll need to write a check for $3,495,000.
