East Hampton House Rental Photos and Description
House, 4 Bedrooms + Office, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 9)
The house is beautifully decorated, yet comfortable and easy to maintain.
It's perfect for families with kids who want to beat the heat and have fun by spending the summer in the Hamptons, for retirees and couples who want a great social life on the East End, or for several couples who want to rest and relax and hang out together and check out the fabled Hamptons night life.
We are on a private road, in historic Springs, where artists such as Jackson Pollack and de Kooning were inspired by the beautiful light and blissful micro-climate. The house is a classic-- grey shingled Hampton-style, but built in the late 80's, and with all amenities. The heated 20 x 40 pool is safe for kids, fully fenced and locked, but serene for adults and kids--we have a diving board and lots of chaises, floats and furniture for comfort, as well as a view of beautiful plantings of hydrangeas and lavender, the trees and the sky, from the private pool area (in summer).
The house is comfortable yet elegant---the eat-in-kitchen has a long refectory table and looks out to the back patio and trees beyond, it's fully equipped for gourmet dining. Every room has charm. We have an office with fax and wi-fi in case you need to stay connected, + cable, DVD players and ipod players.
East Hampton has every conceivable amenity-- from gourmet dining (Nick and Toni's and Eaat Hampton Grill are favorites nearby and Robert's in Watermill), a variety of local places, take-out or prepared food (Citterella's is a one-stop gourmet paradise) great pizza, seafood and Chinese food places. Nearby is the famed Springs General Store where Jackson Pollock traded paintings for canned beans, and where you can get a newspaper and homemade breakfast items and picnic fare, rent kayaks, + take advantage of the school playgrounds, library and youth park with all equipment available. Some of the best ocean beaches on the East Coast are in East Hampton, and the bay beaches are perfect for swimming with for small children. Montauk-- the Lighthouse, surfing and fish restaurants makes a great destination. The town of East Hampton has plenty of both chic and just-fun shops-- from Dylan's Candy, Dressen's donuts to Tiffany's and Ralph Lauren + an incredibly beautiful and well equipped library and bookstores for rainy days. Come back from a day at the beach or in town to our beautifully furnished house, and relax-- its affordable yet DIVINE!!

Nancy purchased this house in 1994
Why Nancy chose East Hampton
In our opinion, East Hampton is the most interesting Hampton town-- it is filled with artists, writers, creative and successful people of all sorts, as well as 'Bonackers'--local people who were originally farmers and fishermen... all are devotees of the town and want to keep it historic and lovely--its one of the oldest settlements on the East End of Long Island. It has a thriving theater, a great plex movie theater, the finest restaurants as well as the most basic snack shops-- great fish, local produce, wineries with excellent vintages, gorgeous views, sensational beaches, fun nightlife and loads of benefit parties if one chooses them, but social life is entirely optional. There is a big variety of things to do with kids, keeping them happy even on rainy days.
What makes this house unique
Our kids went to tennis and riding camp out here. We enjoyed the restaurants and the occasional party. We loved the EH library and puttering around in antique shops, yard sales, bookstores and boutiques. We loved looking out the bedroom window on the peaceful property with its green lawn and plantings...it's a perfect sophisticated vacation place, and now available as a full year, seasonal or short term rental.
