Overview

Springs House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedroom, 2.5 Bathroom, Sleeps 9, with heated pool

Grey cedar shingled, 4-bedroom, waterfront, fully air conditioned, contemporary that sleeps 7 – 9 people on a two-acre property with heated pool abutting 60 acres of wetlands and nature preserve in the historic district of Springs in the town of East Hampton. A local architect designed this home and 2 neighbouring properties. The house has been the year round home of two artists for 30 years so is filled with books, tribal rugs, art, and sculpture. The house and garden have been published in books (including Hamptons Gardens: A 350 Year Legacy by John Esten, Rizzoli) and magazines (including Garden Design, House Beautiful and Martha Stewart Living). Access is by a small private road less than one tenth of a mile long, off Springs Fireplace Road, which makes the property quiet and secluded with no street noise and distant from neighbours, though it is not far to travel to the ocean, the harbor beaches, and the villages of East Hampton and Amagansett.

The gardens were designed by one of the artists, and at their heart is a medieval-inspired courtyard garden. Herringbone brick surrounds an 8’ square lily pool with a fountain, goldfish and white day and night-blooming water lilies. The surrounding beds are filled with plants that grew in the middle ages, and espaliered pear trees grow against the wall and wood fence. Brick sculptures, which are inspired by Middle Eastern tribal carpets, are laid out, rug-like, in different parts of the property. A small glade has been designed as an ideal spot for reading and contemplation.

The large light-filled living room has a tuned baby grand piano, fireplace, sofa, coffee table, multiple comfortable chairs and an attached half bath. It leads to a library with a large flat screen TV/DVD. On one side of the library is a wall of books and on the other side stunning views of Accabonac Harbor, wetlands and an osprey platform on which an osprey couple can often be observed nesting and raising their young. Also off the living room is a protected deck overlooking the pool and garden with grey wood chairs and a coffee table – perfect for enjoying cocktails.

There are 4 bedrooms. The master bedroom, with king-size bed, has wonderful views of Accabonac Harbor, Gardiner’s Island and the garden below. Off the master bedroom is its own 6’x8’ deck, and the full separate master bathroom is 7 steps down.

Another two bedrooms are on the ground floor. These share a full bathroom. One bedroom has a queen-size bed and views of the beautiful garden stretching to the wetlands and nature preserve. The adjacent bedroom has bunk beds, a futon sofa (which opens to a double pull-out) and a desk.

The forth bedroom – itself a former artist’s studio – has its own entrance beyond the garden. It has sweeping views over the wetlands, nature preserve and Accabonac Harbor. That bedroom contains a king-size bed which can become two separate twin beds.

The dining area has a table that can seat 8 people and leads to a 12’ x 13’ deck that has a built-in wood table with umbrella and views stretching to the Harbor – ideal for outdoor dining. The fully equipped kitchen (including a dishwasher and TV) leads to the dining area.

There is a heated pool with outdoor shower. Between the pool and house is a protected deck with wood furniture that overlooks both the pool and courtyard garden.

The center of the Villages of East Hampton and Amagansett are within cycling distance – 6 miles or a 15-minute drive, and the ocean beaches are just beyond the villages. The home of Jackson Pollock and Lee Krasner, a National Landmark and historic museum, is 0.8 miles from the property. Turning north east from the driveway, it is 0.7 miles to the beginning of Gerard Dive, a narrow road that has Accabonac Harbor on one side and Gardiner’s Bay on the other, great for bird watching. At the end of Gerard Drive are ideal spots for bicycling, walking, fishing and swimming in the harbor. The harbor is mostly shallow (3-5 feet in depth) and is excellent for summer swimming – typically much warmer than the ocean, and fun for kids. You can easily put canoes, kayaks and paddle boards in the water there.

Private Artist Retreat in a lovely part of the Hamptons

  • 5 of 5
We had such a nice time at this house. It is very relaxing and homey. We were absolutely in love with all the artwork that is through this private house and the stories that Marggy shared with us. Marggy was a phenomenal host and made us feel right at home. Her gorgeous garden was the perfect place to read a book and our toddler loved getting to feed her gold fish. I highly recommend this house for a vacation away from it all while still being close to the Hamptons. It was definitely a little oasis for our family.
