Built in the style of a modern barn-style compound, the main house has a fieldstone base, slate roof and stucco walls, and a 28-foot timber-framed barn structure that stands as the centerpiece of the home. A 36-foot high, square-cut Pennsylvania fieldstone fireplace with a custom steel beam above the large hearth, stands at the end of the main room, and its soaring stone chimney rises high outside the living room's wall of windows. While the main structure houses the primary living room, kitchen, den, butler's bar, and both an upstairs and downstairs master bedroom, two additional connected barn-style structures house...guest wings, pool cabanas, offices and utility areas. In total, the 8-bedroom compound is approximately 9,000 square feet with an additional 3,100 square feet in the unfinished lower level. Outdoor living amenities include a gunite pool and hot tub, Har-Tru tennis court, dining area with professional grill, and a stone, wood and steel outdoor living room with wet bar setup. The house is situated on 3.9 acres in the Northwest Woods, close to East Hampton Village, home to many creatives in film, fine arts, fashion, etc. who locate here for privacy and exclusivity because of the peaceful nature of the woods and the sanctity of the site. Based on the huge 7-foot-high stone formation that sits just outside the property's edge, called Jason's Rock, legend has it that the rock holds a pool of water in its crest even during the hottest days of summer and was a source of nourishment for a Native American who drank from the rock on long journeys from town to town, hence the house name is Barns Crossing after Jason's legendary crossings.
