"It's a combination of my father's favorite elements from the houses he's built over the last 30 years."

Many people comment on the way the Lucases have merged iconic architectural styles into a seamless whole. After years of development experience throughout the Long Island area, the Lucases knew exactly how to marry the different designs they loved most into an architecture that matched their Northeastern lifestyle. Victorian influences, French-country motifs, and some contemporary takes on traditional styles are all integrated into the house's eight bedrooms, eight full baths, two half-baths, office, living room, great room, den, dining room, kitchen, and guest quarters.

The all-white, light-flooded kitchen offers spectacular views of the Sag Harbor Bay and serves as a favorite family gathering space. "Everyone ends up there, of course," Andrew says. But there are plenty of other cozy nooks in which to gather throughout the rest of the 11,000-square-foot floor plan. Patricia, Gary, and Andrew—along with Andrew's siblings Matt, Caitlin, and Shannon—make use of each space in the house; they love the barrel-ceiling den, with its massive stone fireplace and wall of light-drenched windows.

Even the basement is beautiful. Fully furnished, it boasts 9-foot ceilings, so family and guests can relax as comfortably downstairs as they do on the upper floors. Cold feet are never a problem, even in the winter months: throughout the Lucas home, energy-efficient radiant heating warms floors of wide-plank hickory and rustic slate. "These warm, natural materials really flow into the blue stone, oaks, and water outside," says Andrew.

Plenty of guests will arrive to admire the house and its view. This summer, the Lucases will host Caitlin's college graduation party in Sag Harbor. "It's exactly what this house was built for," explains Andrew. "Relaxing—and maximizing our family time on and near the water."

"It feels like you're sitting out on the bay."

To complement their breathtaking landscape, the Lucas family built an infinity-edge pool that cascades toward their deep-water pier in the bay. They've surrounded the pool with checkerboard bluestone slabs to form a natural-looking patio space—one that doesn't interrupt the backyard's greenery. This combination of live materials and premium stone "creates an entertainment space without establishing a concrete jungle," Andrew says. Instead, the patio maintains "a natural feel" and leaves the bay as a focal point for outdoor living. This nature-centered aesthetic, Andrew continues, helps the Lucas home look "like it's been here forever."

And forever seems like exactly the right length of time to dwell in such a beautiful place.
