Especially charming, large 1920's home in the heart of East Hampton village. Mediterranean blue-gray heated gunite pool with adjoining brick patio and hot tub. Lounge chairs and umbrellas, direct sunlight all day. The house is cheerful and comfortable, with tasteful country antiques and farmhouse furnishings. Very suitable for families, or couples who want guests (no group rentals, however). Beautiful garden and patio furniture provided. Outdoor shower next to the pool and hot tub.
One and a half blocks to gourmet food and vegetable shops for morning coffee, newspaper, prepared food, and groceries. Two blocks to village center, including Jitney stops, train station (with transportation to New York City) and movie theatre. Less than 1 mile to ocean beach. Bicycles available. Main Street location allows walking or biking everywhere. Backyard completely fenced in. Will consider pets on a case by case basis.
Available with the rental is the use of a car with stickers (parking passes) for both town and village beaches, a very unusual bonus since this allows parking at all the most exclusive and least crowed beaches. (Without a resident sticker, only one ocean beach is available to non-residents, and non-resident stickers sold-out in early spring.)
Cozy and comfortable for fall and winter rentals: large living room fireplace, large cook's kitchen with restaurant stove, lovely dining room for family gathering, century old trees on the property. Roomy bedrooms with new mattresses (5th bedroom maid's room size, though). All bedrooms have an individual bathroom and some bathrooms with original clawfoot tubs from the 20's. Extensive library and great spots for reading as well tv/dvd viewing (tv in living room and 3 bedrooms).
John (pictured, with Ruggles at Egypt Beach, East Hampton) and Cecilia Ford, purchased this house in 1995. It has had only 2 previous owners since it was built in 1927.
