Designer Waldo Fernandez Lists Serene Hamptons Retreat for $7 Million

Located just blocks from the beach, the six-bedroom compound features a lotus pond and black granite infinity pool

Set on a lush parcel with bamboo groves and a lotus pond, this Zen-inspired house reads more “Far East” than East End. But the 1.25-acre compound is indeed located mere blocks from the Atlantic Ocean, in coveted East Hampton Village in New York.

The owner of the 6,000-square-foot escape is Los Angeles–based designer Waldo Fernandez, known for conjuring glamorous but relaxed homes for A-list clients such as Elizabeth Taylor, Angelina Jolie, and Darren Star—whose own Hamptons hideaway was featured in Galerie.

Built in 2006, Fernandez’s six-bedroom retreat is organized around a tranquil lotus pond inspired by the designer’s travels in Thailand. The thoughtfully organized floor plan features generously proportioned rooms, including a chef’s kitchen equipped with a butler’s pantry and a spacious living area that opens onto a network of mahogany-lined verandas. A skybridge links the main house to two separate volumes, including one configured as a music room and another as a massage parlor.

Downstairs, the finished basement comprises a state-of-the-art fitness center and laundry room, and the shingle-clad home also comes with an attached two-car garage. Originally listed in 2014 for $9.5 million, the refuge didn’t find a buyer, but with summer just weeks away and the Hamptons real-estate market already in overdrive, it’s safe to say that won’t be the case this time around.
