If the perfect vacation is a tranquil, secluded paradise, you've found it. You and your family will love this welcoming, stylish, light-filled home surrounded by pastures with grazing horses and mules, (not to mention deer, rabbits, hawks, foxes and more!) and acres of parkland with the ocean just beyond. All this just minutes from Montauk’s best beaches including Ditch Plains (and best surf breaks: The Ranch, Warhols, Turtles, Cavett's).
Play on the gorgeous rolling lawn, barbecue on the patio with friends, create an amazing meal in the “cook’s” kitchen, gather at the antique farm table (room for 10), pick veggies or flowers from the garden, soak under the stars in the hot tub or just lounge in the hammock and watch the horses and listen to the birds and the surf.
This house is truly a home – beautifully and comfortably appointed with high-end furniture and linens, art and antiques. 3 BRs plus guest room/den, family/TV room, all with stunning views. Heaven!
Unique location: The house is located on a dead end road in Montauk's most exclusive south of the highway neighborhood. Most of the other homes on this road are oceanfront estates and there are no other homes for rent in this area. You can walk across the highway to go on one the most beautiful beach rides you'll ever experience (or board your horse). You are only minutes from everything Montauk has to offer but you'll feel like you're worlds away. The Lighthouse and Camp Hero State Park are down the road, 1000's of acres of state and county parks with hiking, horseback riding and biking trails are adjacent to the property.
The ocean is about a half mile away. You can get there on a beautiful new walking trail through Amsterdam Beach State Park. It's about a 15-20 minute walk (the trail 'meanders' a bit and can get 'buggy' in August).
Adjacent preserves and parks: Amsterdam Beach State Park, Theordore Roosevelt County Park, Camp Hero State Park, Andy Warhol Preserve, Montauk Point State Park
Beaches, surfing, hiking, biking, riding!: Whether you're just learning to surf at famous Ditch Plain Beach or you're looking for a more challenging wave at the Ranch, Warhols or Turtles, you're a 2 minute drive (or a 10 minute bike and 15-20 minute walk) away. We will help you obtain beach parking passes (around $300). For kayakers, stand up paddlers and families who want calmer waters, Gin Beach and Navy Road Beach are great nearby options.
Note: a new trail is being developed in Amsterdam Beach State Park which will give you walking access from our house to beaches (and surf breaks) that were otherwise difficult to reach.
Deep Hollow Ranch is down the road and offers one of the most beautiful beach rides I've even been on. The riding trails are also great for hiking down to the Sound.
There’s nothing “McMansion” or generic about this beautiful Nantucket-style home. It was built by a cabinetmaker and decorated by an art director/designer. Craftsmanship and care is evident in every detail, from the Shaker inspired built-ins to the hand-turned stair railing leading to the second floor.
The interior feels spacious and intimate at the same time with a wonderful flow from room to room. Nothing has been overlooked in terms of comfort and livability. This is a true home, not a generically furnished rental house. The décor is an artful blend of antiques, modern and vintage furniture and art, as well as unexpected touches like the giant turtle shells.
The exterior design was based on historic Second House (late 1600’s) which may explain why the house feels so natural in it’s spectacular Montauk surroundings.
You and your guests will be comfortable here. Imagine the fun you'll have dining alfresco or at the our antique farm table. Children and families love it here!
Full time Montaukers with 2 college aged kids. We are passionate surfers and outdoors lovers. A cabinet maker and graphic designer who built and decorated this home with attention and care.
We love being close to some of Montauk's most beautiful (and most exclusive) beaches. We love surfing and there are few other homes that are this close to the best breaks in the area. We are adjacent to 1000's of acres of parkland and overlook pristine fields and the ocean.
