Over in Southampton, a brick ribbon wall (top) with curve toward the curb encases the front of a 1970 contemporary by architect Tom Wilson, who later consulted on the current owners’ subsequent renovations. Behind the barricade, the minimalist property centers around the contrasts between an open-plan living space and an even more open patio (above).
Another single-story brick wall — this one part of the home — stretches along the side yard walkway (above) to the recessed entry:
Once inside, the space really opens up. Living and dining areas share limestone flooring and a wall of full-height window pairs overlooking the patio on the east side:
The home, which measures 2,025 sq. ft., was designed with 2 master suites. The one at the front of the home has 2 private courtyards:
The hammock’s placement in the photo above answers the question asked by many a curious passer-by: What lies behind the brick wall’s bulbous furl?
Meanwhile, the master bathroom also has access to small pods of patio:
The other bedroom has been converted into a media room and den . . .
with direct access outside . . .
and the second full bathroom. There’s also a half-bath.
A brick wall — with artful arch — encases most of the 6,000-sq.-ft. lot:
The property is located 3 lots west of Ashby St. and 2 blocks south of Bissonnet. Homes on this block share a service alley at the back. As listed earlier this week, the property has a $1.169 million asking price.
