Water Mill Home With Rooftop Tennis Court Being Built

Jan 7, 2015 4:16 PM

From rooftop gardens and patios to sky high tennis courts! Unique, multi-functional rooftop designs are often the product of urban planning in places like New York City, where space is the stuff of mythology. But they’re migrating east, on lots that can’t comfortably accommodate every luxurious amenity that seems to be the norm in new homes.

Working with only 2.1 acres, architect Phil Rossillo designed a beautiful 13,000-square-foot home that can have it all without using up all the land. Introducing the rooftop tennis court, an unusual residential feature for a new home being built in Water Mill.

With U.S. Open-quality layered rubber, the court is set into the attic, and a concrete slab is poured underneath so that inhabitants below don’t have to listen to the rhythmic bouncing of a ball or pitter-patter of feet. Steel columns help support the weight. In between sets, rooftop players can take in the gorgeous, unobstructed views. They can also enjoy the protection of a screen that blocks out strong sun and nosy neighbors who likely won’t be able see through the giant hedges that appear to be bordering the property in the renderings.

In addition to the seven bedrooms and eight-and-a-half baths, this aesthetically rich, waterfront home has a heated infinity pool overlooking wildflowers that waterfalls into a 10 foot by 20 foot spa, a theater, wine room, gym, elevator (which, incidentally, leads to the tennis court) and water frontage with a dock.

Located at 100 Crescent Avenue, this not-so-modest abode is going for $21.9 million. Learn more at www.elliman.com.
