Classic historic colonial with five bedrooms and five en suite bathrooms (five full bathrooms, one powder room, one outdoor shower), on mature lush grounds south of the Montauk Highway, close to the water in Westhampton.
A separate two bedroom apartment with full kitchen, living area, bathroom with steam shower is available for additional charge. These living quarters are perfect for housekeeper, nanny, in-laws etc. This two bedroom apartment has a separate outdoor entrance, a separate entrance to the butler's pantry and connection to the main house through a double locked door from one of the apartment's bedrooms to bedroom 5 en-suite bathroom (perfect for Nanny and care of children sleeping in bedroom 5).
The heated gunite SALT WATER POOL is very kind to the skin and eyes of the swimmer; the difference will be noticed on the first day in the pool. The har-tru tennis & bocce courts, family room, play room provide space for outdoor and indoor activities. The formal dining room, large formal living room, stainless steel kitchen and butler's pantry are perfect for entertaining or for any size family. The patio and side porch (side covered porch is secure for young children) provide space for formal or informal relaxation. The ground floor master bedroom is easily accessible for all ages. The out door shower on brick patio adjacent to the pool is a refreshing end to any outdoor activity. The pool is not accessible from any house door which is a safety factor for families with young children to prevent accidental pool entry. The pool is usually closed for the season early October. However, an easily removed solar bubble blanket can help prolong the season. The pool will remain open beyond the usual closure after an appropriate fee is negotiated and received separate from the booking rental fee.
The butler's pantry has an additional refrigerator/freezer, sink and dish washer which is perfect for large families, small groups or entertaining.
The property was recently completely remodeled with major renovations each year thereafter. The fenced area around the heated gunite salt water pool was enlarged in 2014.

A love of older homes and has led us to completely remodel and redecorate this historic Suffolk county residence built shortly after the civil war. The initial part of the home was also used as a stagecoach stop for New York City travelers to the Hamptons and Montauk until the trains dominated passenger transportation. The original kitchen and dining room were large enough to service more than one stage coach.
The remodeled home has many beautiful details with every amenity and convenience that the stage coach travelers of the 19th century would have never imagined.
Cecilia B. Kempton and Don R. Anderson purchased this chateau / country house in 2000
The property is located in Westhampton with many local recreational and social activities. The Suffolk Theater in Riverhead and the Westhampton Beach Performing Arts Center in Westhampton Beach have nationally known entertainers and other activities for all ages. Westhampton Beach is a comfortable 1 1/2 mile walk. The North and South Forks are a convenient drive. But vacationers will find that every need is on the property and will especially enjoy the heated gunite salt water pool, tennis, bocce, croquet and the magnificent landscaping.
Professional har-tru tennis court, new heated SALT WATER gunite 20x40 pool, har-tru bocce court, three patios and beautiful covered porch are located on beautiful grounds which provide seclusion and privacy.
If Westhampton House is rented during the off-seson, the salt-water pool is able to remain open for an additional fee. The fee is dependent upon the rental period and the length of time from the usual pool closure toward the end of September.
We had a wonderful week at this beautiful home in Westhampton that was equipped with everything you could possibly need. Each bedroom with it's own bathroom with plenty of towels and linens fit my family's needs perfectly.
The outside grounds including a salt water pool which is definitely kind to your skin and eyes was a special treat.
The tennis court (we are a tennis family) and bocce court (both hartru composition) were perfect for us and they were kept well. The grounds were large enough for other sports , games and entertaining.
We actually celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary with family and friends who were in awe of the property.
We also rented the 2 bedroom apartment for our friends who came in from Italy which fit their needs to a tee. 2 bedrooms a living area kitchenette and bathroom.
The house, the apartment and the grounds were impeccable.
I could probably write 2 or 3 pages of all the pluses but I wont.
The owner Cecilia is a very gracious lady who was always available to help in any way she could.
It is only minutes to the quaint town of Westhamption and the lovely beaches.
We loved our stay and would highly recommend this property.
This beautiful home was a perfect retreat for my children and friends. We came in for my mothers ocean burial so we needed a home, not a hotel, to escape to and renew. The home itself is stylishly fitted to a tee. The beds are comfortable, the pool is warm and the kitchen is spacious. Cecelia was always available and recommended delivery services for food and bikes for my teens. I loved walking to the beach where the kids found their first horseshoe crab! I would recommend this property to anyone visiting the Hamptons!

We had a lovely weekend at this Westhampton rental. The location was perfect and easy to find. We were a short drive from the Main Street (shops, supermarket etc). We ended up never making it to the beach because the house was so perfect! The house had everything we needed.
The owner was a pleasure to book with. Very response to our emails and questions. We were able to easily check in and out of the house. Also, we received our security deposit back in a timely fashion. Over all I would definitely recommend to friends and family to rent this home.
Fantastic house, perfect for our family get-together. Every single guest loved it. Great pool, terrific tennis court, wonderful backyard. Beds were extremely comfortable. All rooms are impeccably designed, and the house was equipped with everything you could possibly need. Cecilia is a caring and gracious owner, and was always available to help out in every way possible. We really loved everything about our stay, and highly recommend it!
My family enjoyed a wonderful vacation at this property. The house has terrific amenities including a great pool, tennis court, bocce court, and large lawn for other games and sports. It was perfect for a large, multi-generational family stay. I would definitely recommend the house to anyone considering a beach getaway in the Hamptons.
A har-tru bocce court adjacent to the har-tru tennis court is available. The heated gunite pool is a SALT WATER POOL. The salt water is very kind to the skin and eyes of the swimmer and each swimmer will notice the difference on the first day.
