Located on a quiet wooded acre off a cul-de-sac, set back from street by circular driveway, this home is a perfect all-season getaway. The living/dining area on main floor is bathed in sunlight through skylights and glass doors and opens onto a wrap-around deck. Spiral stairs lead up to a huge master suite featuring cozy sitting area, access to porch overlooking pool, and large bathroom with Jacuzzi tub. Spiral stairs lead down to spacious entertainment area.
Grounds are highlighted by a 25’ x 15’ heated swimming pool with diving board and attached hot tub, surrounded by brick deck and garden. The community offers private access to Peconic Bay beach with spectacular sunsets, two tennis courts and beach volleyball court. A short drive to Atlantic beaches, including Coopers Beach, recently rated the best in America. Wildlife Preserve with hiking trails is a five-minute drive away. Quaint towns of Sag Harbor and Southampton Village offer fine restaurants and a variety of local shops.
The drive from the house to mid-town Manhattan is about 1:45 minutes with light traffice, and 2:30 minutes during heavy traffice.
The community in which the house is located consists mostly of second-homes, so during off peak seasons, there are hardly any neighbors around. Even during the height of the summer, the community is usually very quiet, and the Bay beach is never crowded.
The nearby ocean beaches require permits for parking; these permits are not part of the rental agreement. Daily permits can be purchased at the beaches.
Within about a 20 minute drive, there is ample shopping ranging from small, local shops to national chains and supermarkets, including a nearby outdoor mall with most of the stores one would expect to find in a good mall.
The Hampton Jitney is a local private bus service between Manhattan and the Hamptons. The bus ride is somewhat longer than a car ride would be, because it makes a few stops at either end, but the ride is comfortable and quiet. Buses are equipped with Wi-fi, and riders are given a snack and a beverage as part of the fare, along with newspapers in the morning. Fare and schedule information can be found at www.hamptonjitney.com.
THE MINIMUM RENTAL PERIOD IS ONE WEEK. THERE ARE NO WEEKEND RENTALS.
