This post, from top: Enjoy the scenery and lush greenery as you make your way to the dock on Mecox Bay. A curved, gravel driveway leads to the estate, a contemporary take on the classic shingle-style homes in the neighborhood. Opposite, clockwise from top: The public spaces in the house were designed to blend seamlessly into one another and flow into the outdoors. The massive marble island in the kitchen area is a perfect perch for drinks and appetizers during a party. A coffered ceiling and wainscoting give the dining room an elegant, formal feel.

Although the house is certainly singular, it also fits into the neighborhood thanks to architect Philip M. Rossillo. “The houses in the area are fairly large shingle-style homes,” he says. “So I wanted to make this home context appropriate, but I also wanted it to be more modern. When you move toward the rear of the house, to the water, you get more of a contemporary experience.” That experience includes glass doors and windows lining the back wall of the home and an expansive second-floor balcony that overhangs the first floor, creating areas of shade near the pool and serving as support for the wall of the rooftop tennis court.

If you’re not in the mood for tennis, but want to otherwise flex your muscles, there’s an in-house gym. No worries, though, if you’re thinking relaxation and restoration a spa connects to a room with a soaking tub and steam shower. Entertaining is easy too. Usher your guests to the oval-shaped movie theater that seats up to 10 people, or perhaps the impressive game room featuring a fireplace and (of course) water views. You only need venture as far as your temperature- and humidity-controlled wine cellar for libations (300 to 500 bottles). For more fun, hit the water the ocean, the bay or the pool.

When it’s time to wine and dine, retire to the first-floor living space, where the kitchen, dining area and living room blend seamlessly into one another. No hallways here, and no obstructions to the panoramic views. It doesn’t get much better than this.

Think of Bentley Motors, and those are some of the words that come to mind. However, what most people don’t realize is that the automotive institution also has deep roots in speed, power and racing. Enter the Bentley Mul-sanne, a luxurious limousine-like sedan with raw power that harks back to Bentley’s rich history of automotive excellence.
