This is The Beach Box, a shipping container house in the dunes of Amagansett, New York, off Montauk Highway. The home is believed to be the first in the Hamptons to be built from shipping containers and was developed by Andrew Anderson with six-modules from New York-based SG Blocks (the same company behind the Harbinger House).
The four SG Blocks containers on the ground level have all four bedrooms, while the two on top have the open kitchen, living room, and dining room. In total, Beach Box has four bedrooms, two-and-a-half bathrooms, and 2,000 square feet with a bonus of 1,300 square feet of exterior deck space.
Beach Box, which is located about 600 feet from the ocean, was built with EcoTop counters, tankless water heating, a 16 SEER HVAC unit, spray foam insulation, a white thermoplastic roof, Energy Star appliances, and FSC-certified cypress siding and decking and white oak floors, according to the listing by Douglas Elliman.
In addition to the cyprus siding, this home has an exterior cladding of fiber-cement and energy-efficient windows with low-E glazing. The landscaping is finished with indigenous beach grasses.
For those in the area, owner and developer Anderson has the Beach Box listed for sale with an asking price of $1,395,000. Meanwhile, Anderson recently closed on a lot nearby, according to the NY Times, and expects to build a more luxurious shipping container home to be valued in the range of $4,000,000 – $5,000,000.
