"Spacious charm" suggests the delights of this unique, roomy (4,000 sf, 5BR/5.5 bath), historic “Shingle Style” hillside home on 3.7 acres, with spectacular views of Shinnecock Bay (a safe 2-minute walk to beach). All bathrooms have been recently renovated, and there is a new cook’s kitchen, paneled Living Room w/fireplace and grand piano, TV/rec room (HD cable and wireless internet included), two Bay-view verandas for dining or cocktails, A/C in all bedrooms, ample outdoor lawns for relaxation or play, and a lovely sheltered brick patio for sunning and barbecues. A firepit with picnic table and rustic benches off the back lawn is a favorite with our guests for roasting marshmallows and just hanging out with friends.
Children love the rambling spaces and seemingly endless nooks and crannies of the house. Perfect for entertaining your weekend guests, yet with no lack of charming “hideaways” for those who’d prefer to escape to a quiet corner for a while.
Must be seen to be appreciated. No shared rentals, please.

A vacation rental with character and charm
This Southampton vacation rental lived up to its billing and description, and was spacious enough for our family (retired couple, two adult children, son-in-law, and young grandson), family friends, as well as assorted visitors who came for a meal or a night or two. Wonderful spaces to entertain in (two verandas, patio, large lawn) as well as quiet places too, so we were definitely able to spread out, as well as to move about the house depending on whether we wanted sunshine or shade. We didn’t realize we’d booked a historic, architect-designed house (more than 100 years old!) or that some of the owners were artists, so that added to its quirky charm. Great location in The Hamptons (near both Hampton Bays and Southampton), close to beaches, and situated before the traffic gets really congested. There are plenty of interesting things to do in the area (art galleries, wineries to name a couple), but we also enjoyed just hanging out at the house, cooking, and sharing meals together. We spent a pleasant week here, the only downsides being the lack of a working washer and dryer and leaks in a bedroom during downpours (but fortunately, the leaks weren’t over the bed). We are West Coast folks and this was our first visit to Long Island, but if we came back to The Hamptons, we’d want to stay here again.
Perfect for large family
If you want to experience the Hamptons circa early 20th century with modern conveniences and you have a large family, this is the house for you. If you are interested in character and history, this is the house for you. It sits high on a hill at the end of a long driveway in a very private, quite and peaceful location overlooking Shinnecock Bay yet it is very convenient to Hampton Bays or Southampton as well as to several beaches and other areas of interest. Parking for multiple cars is more than adequate. All the rooms (there are a lot) are large and you can always find a quite spot in a house full of people. The house is reasonably priced for the Hamptons. All in all, my large family spent 2 wonderful weeks in this house and I would highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for tradition and not glitz.
Great Family Getaway
Our family loved spending a week at this huge historic house. The house had lots of interesting architectural features, lovely outdoor spaces, and a fire pit for roasting marshmallows. The house was very clean with modern bathrooms and kitchen appliances. The description provided in the listing is right on. We loved spending time on the balconies enjoying the bay view and bird watching. It was very relaxing and was only a short drive to Southampton and Hampton Bay beaches. Good access to cycling routes. The owners were genuinely nice and very helpful. I would definitely recommend it for a family vacation or romantic getaway.
Less than 10 minutes drive from the lovely historic Village of Southampton, we are centrally located in the Hamptons, New York City’s premier “playground” for the rich and famous. Overlooking Shinnecock Bay, our 3.5-acre hillside property remains peaceful and secluded amidst the bustle and activity of the surrounding area, with its wealth of attractions: miles of wide ocean beachfront set off by natural dunes; Southampton Golf Course, just minutes away; fishing and boating of all sorts; lovely tree-shaded local roads for biking and walking; and scores of cultural events, theaters, restaurants, wineries, galleries, upscale boutiques, and nightlife venues. Only 1½ hours drive (off-peak) from the city.
