Real Estate & Home In 1946, three years before he built his famous Glass House in New Canaan, Connecticut, renowned architect Philip Johnson designed a beach house in the Hamptons based on plans drawn up by Mies van der Rohe.

Johnson considered the Farney House, nestled in the dunes of Sagaponack supported on raised log piers, one of his finest commissions and used it as a template for subsequent designs.

The house, which was later expanded and updated by local architect Mark Matthews and features a stunning glass-enclosed living room with spectacular ocean views, is now for sale at $35 million.

The 5,000-sq-.ft., 8-bed, 7-bath wooden residence sits on 3.6 oceanfront acres with 363 ft. of pristine Hamptons shoreline, and is accessed by a private road situated a substantial distance from any public beach access.

The property includes a lovely free-form swimming pool, tennis court, play area, a chipping/putting green and basketball court incorporated into a beautiful landscape design, as well as a long boardwalk running from the house to the beach. The house has been featured in a number of notable publications and architectural reviews of Johnson's work.
