We are a married couple, a writer/entrepreneur and artist who live mainly in New York City and spend as much time as possible in East Quogue.
Marissa Bridge purchased this house in 2003
We were working long hours in Manhattan and our children were young, so we decided to rent a summer house in the NYC area. Over the years we rented houses in many different areas, including Connecticut, Fire Island, Westhampton Beach, Remsenberg, and Hampton Bays, before finally renting in East Quogue. We fell in love with the area's proximity to NYC, since it is only a 1 1/2 hour drive to Manhattan. The Hampton Jitney is only two blocks away, so a car is not absolutely necessary. And it is a small town, with all the good that comes with it, such as less traffic and unpretentious neighbors. But it so very close to all the beauty of the Hamptons area, including world-class beaches, restaurants, shopping, etc. For us it is the best of all possible worlds.
We purchased our home becuse we fell in love with the location in the village area of East Quogue. We loved the front porch, the wonderful piece of property on which the house sits, and the good bones of the house itself. Being within walking distance to the town and Hampton Jitney stop was important to us, because although we have a car, we felt that it was necessary to have a house that could be enjoyed without having a car and expending fossil fuels unnecessarily. One can easily walk or bike to the town market, farmstand, or Seven Eleven, and It is possible to bike to the supermarket, and even the ocean beach (our teenage son does it frequently but we confess we haven't).
Our house is located one and half hours drive from Manhattan, in a charming little village unspoiled by all the traffic and congestion of the Southampton and East Hampton areas. It is a 5 minute drive to our beautiful, uncrowded ocean beaches. The cultural activities of the other Hamptons areas are a 20 minute to 40 minute drive, including the Parrish Art Museum in Watermill and the numerous galleries, restaurants and shopping of Southampton, East Hampton, Sag Harbor, etc. There is a great health food supermarket five minutes away, and any and all amenities nearby. It is a 15 minutes drive to Riverhead, which has a wonderful aquarium and the famous Tanger Outlets shopping center, plus every big box store you can name. There are public golf courses in Westhampton Beach, Riverhead, and Southampton.
The village of East Quogue, founded in 1673, is full of character. It has quiet tree-lined streets of homes mostly built in the 1800's to 1930's. There are a few 1950's ranch homes, but mostly the oldies have been preserved or renovated in the vernacular style, as ours has been. It is a five minute walk to the main street from our house, and one can purchase groceries or have a wonderful meal in town. A car is not absolutely necessary, as the Hampton Jitney stops right on Montauk Highway and is a 2 block walk to our home. We have bicycles for your use, and a farm stand and Seven Eleven are a five minute bike ride if the kids want Slurpies.
