East Hampton, New York

East Hampton, New York


This shingle style home was built in 2012 and is set on more than 2 acres of wonderfully landscaped grounds. The compound includes the main house, an adorable guest cottage, separate pool house, gym, and a detached 3 bay garage. The garden space includes an orchard, pergolas and a pool as well as fireplaces both inside the house and outside for keeping comfortable on a cool breezy summer evening. There are 6 bedrooms, 8.5 baths in a total of 6500 sq. ft. The wide plank floors  throughout are dark stained antique pine, as well as beautiful and extensive millwork. The entire home is furnished with pieces from around the world in an elegant but comfortable and welcoming style.

This is actually the back of the house. Pretty at night with the stone wall to the left and the simple stone path leading from the house to the yard, pool and other outbuildings.

This ariel view shows how close it is to the Atlantic and the beach, as well as how treed the area is.

This view shows the relationship of the house to the road (right) and the beach (left) as well os the pool and other outbuildings. Beautifully sited.

Simple white kitchen so appropriate for a beach home. I have always like hanging pot racks, and I like that this is hung from rods rather than chain.

Another view of this cooks kitchen. No trouble feeding a crowd here, My lobster pot is ready and waiting!

Family room with a wet bar area convenient to the outside entertainment area. I love that there is a piano. Imagine a party and someone playing while you enjoy the covered porch area.

Close up view of the wet bar area adjacent to the covered porch and family room.

The covered porch area adjacent to the family room above. Just beyond the stone wall and gate is the orchard and the swimming pool area.

This is perhaps my favorite area…..this is the apple orchard with this huge long wood dining table. Oh the parties I would have. Imagine a fresh lobster and crab roast, with fresh corn grown locally, set among a table with hurricane lanterns and votives the entire length of the table. As you walked from the house, opened the gate and caught a glimpse, wouldn’t it be magical? I am not sure if they are already lit, but I would surely have up lighting along the length of the orchard under the trees. Maybe even twinkle lights in the trees as well. What a party I would throw!

TV sitting room with bookcases and lots of comfortable seating.

This is a pergola off of the pool house. Lovely with the stacked stone fireplace and again, lots of comfortable seating.

I love granite, and it’s use here by the pool is simple, sturdy and low maintenance.So inviting. I would be in this pool all summer. Get me a water mattress, and I would sleep here as well. You can see the orchard to the left. For my party I would continue the lanterns all along the pool edge to draw folks here to relax. I love the sight lines, so symmetrical, mimicking the straight lines of the home’s architecture beautifully.

Lovely view from far side of pool back towards the orchard and the house. Imagine all the candles and lanterns and lights on the night of my gala......ohhh, so pretty.

Another view, this from the hot tub adjacent to the pool area. The stone surround and pool coping continues the soft grays of the house stain and the tree trunks.

The formal living room. Notice that the Roman shades are used in every room, connecting them visually.

Here in the more formal dining area, we see a coffered ceiling instead of the beamed ceilings in most of the other adjacent rooms.

This is the master bedroom. Perhaps you have noticed by now, that even the wood tones of all the furniture throughout the house is the same, allowing for a wonderful visual flow from room to room.

Partial view of the master bath.

Another bedroom, also with a beamed ceiling and lots of light from the many windows.

Bathroom for the above bedroom. Love the vanity lights and all the counter space.

I like the way this media room is decorated. It ties in with the rest of the home in a casual but comfortable way and is the kind of room that can be used for more than just watching TV or a movie….fit for a large crowd.

Powder Room….just adore how the wood toned decor warms the room despite it being all white. The big chunky mirror gives balance and appropriate visual weight. Anything smaller would not have worked as well. I might even have gone with the same sized frame but longer. I like anything that puts the sink as secondary.

Another bedroom. The art that is in each room is so pretty and instead of high pops of color, again, compliments the soothing monochromatic tones.

Another bedroom, this one with a TV inserted into a bookcase wall, minimizing its impact, and looking more like framed art.

One of the outbuildings in the same shingle siding as all the others.

Nice Gym!!!

Lovely view as the party ends…….

This is the front of the house and a very large parking area for cars……There is nothing I love better than to hear the crunching of gravel when folks are arriving……and then leaving. Here’s to happy times for the new owners of this lovely home.

I hope you enjoyed a quick visual trip to the Hamptons. It is a whole lot easier as I here tell that the traffic to get there on weekends is about as terrible as getting on and off the Cape in the summer. The far end of Long Island used to be endless farm land , and although areas in production still exist, it is broken up among the tremendous growth the area has seen. As for those on the Hamptons and the Cape, I think they would agree that it is worth the trip to arrive at a home set among trees and ocean breezes. For me, if I lived there, it would be full time, only heading to the city for entertainment once in a while. Pretty as these Hampton areas are, most are no longer affordable to the average person. One can still find a place or two on the Cape within reason, well, kinda. Just in case you are curious, the above home can be yours for $25.5 million. At least dreams are free! Thanks for stopping by. Laters, charisse
