Green roofs planted with no-maintenance grass are the crowning touch on this Hamptons getaway in Amagansett on Long Island. The home—which is clad in cedar and reclaimed cypress timber that blends into the natural surroundings—was designed by Scott Glass, cofounder of New York firm Guerin Glass Architects, and is available to rent for $75,000 for two weeks in summer months. The ground floor features sliding glass doors that open out to a spectacular sunken patio and a perfectly maintained lawn surrounding a swimming pool and lounge area shaded by mature oak trees.
