More than 4.5 +/- acres of artistically designed gardens incorporating Taoism, Confucianism and Buddhismm, this Bridgehampton estate has to be seen to appreciate the unique concepts of design and creativity . A complex plan of gardens mindfully designed by Jian Guo Xu, a noted Chinese artist, and created by John Whitney, landscape and garden designer. The property's feature garden structure with 500 year old doors is a replica of a 15th-century tem ple in Beijing. Winding paths, water gardens, bridges, stone sculptures, rocks, curved bridges, sitting areas, paths, trees and plantings are a masterful creation of Feng Shui design. Notable outdoor structures include an open-air pavilion adjacent to a koi pond, a pool/tea house with a full bath and shower and gazebo in the bamboo garden. Viewed from the main house and set within the gardens is a spectacular lagoon-like two-level pool and spa surrounded by natural stone patios and walkways. Additional features are traditional moon gate, stone sculptures, inlaid paths and meditating gardens incorporated into the landscape. The 9,000 +/- sq. ft. house has seven bedrooms, seven baths and five half baths. First floor has a large central living room, dining room, kitchen, two master bedrooms and guest bedrooms.
