Bridgehampton house description

The editors and photographers of Traditional Home Magazine stay with us when they are working in the Hamptons! Please see property reviews.

Welcome to 'Elmhurst' Captain Cook's 1880 shingle style farmhouse. The house is located south of the Montauk Highway on Ocean Road in the estate section of Bridgehampton. This 5,500 square foot home has six bedrooms and four bathrooms. It accommodates eleven people comfortably and is surrounded by 1.3 acres of lawns and mature 100 year-old trees. The property includes a 42 foot gunnite pool surrounded by brick terracing and a 50 bush mature rose garden.

If you love the beach you are only a few minutes’ walk or bike ride from the Ocean Road beach entrance. This world-class Hampton’s beach is underutilized because there is little parking available which makes it even better for the beach-goer.

Rental includes free weekly pool service, twice-weekly trash removal, weekly lawn maintenance and weekly housekeeping.

                          Beginning in July is the international polo meet in Bridgehampton - about a ten minute drive from the house. The world class Hampton's Classic horse show and dressage competition is held every August. The area has several excellent wineries with daily tours and tastings. The Hamptons are also known for hosting elegant charity events open to the public from designer fashion auctions to dancing under the stars. Check for listings and invitations to exciting events. Autumn in the Hamptons is truly beautiful - the beach is beautiful and the ocean is warm. September is a favored month by many with generally beautiful weather. Ocean swimming in September is the best of the entire year. Its also a great time for surf casting and surfing. The October International Film Festival attracts a bevy of artists, actors and writers to the stunning waterside location. Fun for kids - picking apples, pumpkins, pony rides - bonfires on the beach! October in the Hamptons is a wonderful family time.


                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 1946

                          Why the Owner Chose Bridgehampton:
                          The house has been in our family for 69 years - it was purchased by my father as a country retreat for the family when we lived in New York City. The house has only been owned by two families - the builder and ours.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          If you enjoy old houses and antiques, you will love Elmhurst. It has a wonderful charm and warmth not often found in newer houses. The location is stellar - within walking distance of one of the few public beaches in the Hamptons. Since there is little public parking for the Ocean Road beach, it remains relatively quiet - even in high season. The house sits on 1.33 acres which provides privacy and plenty of space for children to play. Because the entire community is flat, its a great place for running, jogging and bike riding. Of course the ocean air is wonderful and we are surrounded by stunningly beautiful homes. If surf casting is your passion, walk to the beach in the early morning and enjoy the solitude.
