Spotlight: The Three Sisters
This weeks spotlight is on Randy Ball’s Corcoran listing known as “The Three Sisters,” just west of Amagansett Village on Three Sisters Lane and within walking distance to some great amenities. With the recent sales activity and interest the project has seen.. we thought this would be a perfect opportunity to Spotlight the firm.
The “3 Sisters” were built by Modern Green Home, a Bridgehampton-based construction firm dedicated to unifying modern and traditional architecture with the inspiring natural beauty of the Hamptons. Its founder is Peter Sabbeth. Those who know Peter would agree that he’s a breath of fresh air and is deeply passionate about what he does. A self-taught fine art painter, Peter’s artistic sensibility is visible in his development projects.

The property was once part of a historic Amagansett farm complete with a beautiful Victorian farm house, staff housing, out buildings, barn and few scattered chicken coops. The farm and main house had been abandoned for years. The two staff buildings had been year round and seasonal rentals. When the redevelopment first began most of the Amagansett residents welcomed the relief from the eyesore the property had become.
However, the previous developer had used an antiqued strategy of placing the model home or first home on the road, in plain sight, positioned in an unorthodox manner and at an angle not fitting for a main street home. The design was also out of character for the neighborhood.
The old strategy of “selling off” the first home in the least desirable location, saving the best for last doesn’t always work in the luxury home market.. at least not for the previous developer. A smarter idea might have included a traditional home similar to the one that was there with all the farm house features and americana you’d expect in an iconic main street property. (Comparable to the home on the corner of Windmill & Montauk Hwy currently owned by the Reform Club.)
Needless to say the project sat until Modern Green Home stepped in and for all intents and purposes saved the project from further ruin. What Modern Green did right, was to complete the vision. Each home interacts with one another nicely. They’re a unique blend of traditional farm style and contemporary. Their designs are smart and well received by a younger Amagansett market.
The homes initially hit the market at $5,300,000, which were admittedly over ambitious, but who can blame them for thinking their close proximity to everything could garner South of the highway sales numbers. It speaks volumes about The North of the Highway / South of the Highway divide that exists in the Hamptons.
The homes feature a gourmet chef’s kitchen, open family room with dining and lounging, dynamic entertaining spaces both inside and out, personal gym / yoga room, an outdoor shower room, and you can’t forget about the surfboard and bicycle racks.
We were happy when we heard that 101 Three Sisters is currently in contract to purchase.
“We don’t just see ourselves as a development company. The most exciting thing for us is seeing a family move into one of our homes. Which makes everyone in the office feel good about our work,” says Peter.
It’s not at all uncommon for Modern Green team members to show up with the moving trucks and help a family move their belongings inside one of their homes. Want MGH to design a dog house to match the main house? Don’t hesitate to ask, because with an office full of dog lovers, they’ll gladly oblige.
