East Hampton Estate Rental Photos and Description
5 Bedroom, 5.5 Bath, Sleeps 6
In the 1950’s, the Pony Farm was an actual charming little pony farm where parents brought their children for weekend pony rides. A small piece of the house with antique pine floors and exposed ceiling beams dating back to the 1800’s was owned and enlarged by a preeminent East Hampton real estate dealer in the 1980’s and, subsequently, by Elizabeth Taylor's renowned decorator who again doubled its size and substantially upgraded it in the mid 1990’s, using carefully matched antique beams and pine floors throughout.
Thereafter, two East Hampton decorators owned and decorated to perfection, adding sound and lighting systems, making it the memorable and sophisticated lifestyle experience that it is today. Finally, in 2007, the kitchen area was expanded to incorporate one of its several porches and the rear yard field was landscaped for ultimate, croquet, badminton or softball.
The Pony Farm has an open plan interior that creates a much larger sensation than its 3300 SF. With multiple entertaining areas and outdoor spaces that can easily accommodate 50, it is set on one acre with lushly landscaped back and side yards. It boasts two living rooms, dining and gourmet kitchen areas, three bedrooms and a fourth bedroom also used as a library/office, an over the top pool house and lots of baths (four plus powder room in the main house, another full bath in the pool house, and an outdoor shower). Fully air-conditioned, with a central sound system, wi-fi, and all of the amenities necessary to host a memorable summer in a private, but accessible, location in the Georgica section of East Hampton, about a half-mile from the beach, the airport, and restaurants.
The Pony Farm’s terraced gardens, pool, and extraordinary house, which have been featured in several magazines, including Veranda and House Beautiful, await the discriminating guest! Commune with the rich and famous or have a private sport and culinary retreat. Just bring your clothes!
