This contemporary house is immaculately cared for and beautifully landscaped and decorated and is located on almost 3 acres in Wainscott, NY (Wainscott is a hamlet in the town of East Hampton).

Kids, parents and grandparents--there is something for all. Adjacent to a 17 acre forest preserve, the house is completely private with no other house in sight from the backyard. The house is 3 miles from from Sag Harbor and 5 from East Hampton--town or beaches. House has cathedral ceilings in living room and master bedroom. Completely private heated pool with plenty of sun and large seatings areas. Large dining room table outside with a large new deck. Brand new indoor dining room table seats 8. 4 car garage and 4 driveway parking spaces. 4 bedrooms and 3 full and 2 half baths.

Large heated private pool. Entire house is wheelchair accessible (there is a ramp for the two front steps). Also there is an optional alarm system (you don't have to use it) and wi-fi controlled thermostats and lights. All rooms were redecorated Autumn 2014-Winter 2015 by professional decorators. Furniture is from Restoration Hardware and Ethan Allen. Landscaping was also renewed in Autumn 2014 for a much cleaner open look. Extensive outdoor lighting was added front and back in 2015 and 2016.

NOTE: This is an immaculate elegant house appealing to families or couples interested in a quiet relaxing time in the Hamptons. Sure, enjoy a glass or wine or two but if you are coming to the Hamptons to have wild parties, please do NOT rent this house. Thank you.

About Doug, 5 Knoll LLC

I'm a recently retired consulting actuary and and was searching for something to do post-retirement. The Hamptons is fun place and I thought it would be interesting to own some property. This property was just purchased from the owner who built the house in 1987 and expanded it in 2000. The house is in truly immaculate condition.

Doug, 5 Knoll LLC purchased this house in 2014

Why Doug, 5 Knoll LLC chose Hamptons

My friends and I looked at more than 30 houses in the Hamptons before falling with love with this house and purchasing it. If you rent it, you will see why it is so special.

Guestbook comments from the manager

"Wow. What a house. So private and well-kept. We had a fantastic time and will be back. Owner was extremely responsive when we thought we had an issue (turns out there was a power outage in the town; so not a house issue at all)"

Return trip to this lovely home was even better!

  • 5 of 5

We returned to this beautiful home for our second trip and didn't think it could get any better - but it did! The newly finished basement is an amazing addition with a pool table and big screen TV. It was perfect for late night relaxing and on the one rainy day we had. We love the pool and hot tub and really enjoy the covered patio outside the master bedroom. The owner couldn't be nicer and has thought of everything! We hope to return next summer for trip # 3.

When choosing this house we knew the glove would fit nicely but upon arrival and entering it exceeded our expectations, just like the pictures but even better.

Homey feeling, tranquil grounds and surroundings, quiet yet close to Sag Horbor and East Hampton.

The house and garden facilities were immaculate and comfortable for all our family while a one level house was very convenient.

The owner, Doug, was responsive and attentive before, during and after our departure.

We had a superb vacation and will certainly return again.

Truly awesome house in a truly awesome location

  • 5 of 5

Everything about our stay was excellent! The house is immaculate, spotlessly clean and exceptionally well equipped throughout.

Our lazy days started out with an early swim in the beautiful pool, followed by breakfast and then chilling by the pool until lunch. After lunch, we either chill by the pool some more or hit the beach. Then by late afternoon we prepped and then cooked on the outside gas grill with a glass or two of wine.

The house is huge and has plenty of space. There are TV's in almost every room and you have access to the house Netflix account. The sound system is integrated and zoned throughout the, so whatever track you choose from the house Pandora (Apple or Spotify) account, it will be available in all zones. We would typically have it playing outside quite high by the pool, but lower in say the kitchen. There is also a huge games room in the basement with full size pool table where you can show the opposition who's best!

Upon arrival, the instructions were very clear and very detailed so it never took long to figure anything out.

The owner Doug was very easy to communicate with and prompt by way of response with any questions we had.

Sag Harbour is a 5 minute drive from the house, so if you feel lazy and want a hearty lunch that won't break the bank, then check out the food area in the local deli called 'Provisions' - the veggie stir fry with chicken is sensational! Then take a walk to Jacks Coffee House afterwards for a decent cold brew.

This house is a total gem! We ran out of superlatives for the house during our stay with its luxury, location and I'll hand the baton to you next to add some more!

Amazing place!

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful house, which was perfectly set up for a relaxing vacation. Spacious, well-equipped, easy to maneuver. The owner has thought of everything in his detailed instructions, and it was lovely place for a three-generation-family stay: the kids could play in the pool, the grandparents could sit and read on the shady patio, the parents could work, cook, and relax as well. Highly recommended!

Fantastic! 5 Stars all the way! So Private

  • 5 of 5

This is the third time our group has stayed at this property and it keeps getting better and better. New this year is lighting for the back deck. Recessed lighting in the deck and nicely lit trees. And, a brand new finished basement with world class pool table, bar, old fashioned video arcade and big screen TV and 1/2 bath. It's a great place during a rainy evening or when you get tired of the sun. The owner is so nice. He responded promptly to every inquiry and before and during the rental. The 12 zone Sonos music system is a gem. If you are lucky enough to find free dates that work for your schedule, book this house. You will not be disappointed.

Private, Pristine; Exceeds All Expectations

  • 5 of 5

My family was extremely happy. There are so many extras, such as PlayStation 4 with many games, fantastic sound system (inside and outside), beach chairs to take to the ocean. The list is endless. The house is well priced for what you get. The owners have thought of everything. It is everything the listing says plus much more. We will be back.
