The modern design of a newly-constructed East Hampton home reflects its waterfront location. The five-bedroom, 5 1⁄2 -bathroom home near Three Mile Harbor is on the market for $2.995 million.
The owner, architect Sandra Brauer, designed the master bathroom to look like an ocean wave, says listing agent Vincent Horcasitas of Saunders & Associates. The large windows throughout the home take in the wooded grounds.
The home has more than 3,000 square feet of living space on the two upper floors and an additional 1,600 square feet on the finished lower level.

Hubert de Givenchy, the aristocratic French fashion designer famous for the "little black dress" and styling Audrey Hepburn and Jackie Kennedy, has died aged 91, his partner said Monday. Givenchy designed the famous black dress Hepburn wore in the opening scenes of "Breakfast at Tiffany's."
The designer set the template for ladylike chic in the 1950s and 1960s, and his restrained style still informs the way Britain's Queen Elizabeth II and older American and Chinese socialites dress.
His longtime partner, the former haute couture designer Philippe Venet, announced his death through the Givenchy fashion house, saying he had died in his sleep on Saturday.
"It is with huge sadness that we inform you that Hubert Taffin de Givenchy has died," it said in a statement to AFP.
It was Givenchy's 40-year friendship with Hepburn, who he met on the set of the Billy Wilder's Oscar-winning comedy "Sabrina" in 1953, that helped make him a fashion legend.

Just four months ago, recalls R & Company co-founder Evan Snyderman, an 85-year-old Wendell Castle sat on the concrete floor of his Scottsville, New York studio, chisel in hand, carving away at his latest creation.
"That’s what makes him a true artist," Snyderman says of the prolific woodworker, designer, and sculptor who died Saturday evening at his home outside of Rochester. "He’s always on to the next thing; he’s more interested in the future than the past."
At the beginning of his 60-year career, "artist" was not a word used to describe the makers of chairs and tables. But Castle, who was born in Emporia, Kansas in 1932, studied industrial design and sculpture at the University of Kansas, and moved to New York in the early 1960s, where he became an Artist in Residence and professor at Rochester Institute of Technology and set up a studio in nearby Scottsville, has spent a lifetime earning the title, filling countless notebooks, galleries, and museums with an endless stream of ideas..
