East Hampton house description

Bayberries is a classic antique on 2.5 acres fronting Georgica Pond. The house was built in 1895 by the owner’s great grandfather. From the wraparound front porch there is a magnificent view across the Pond to the ocean, which is accessible by sailboat (2 provided) or canoe (1 provided), and also by car or bike to nearby Georgica Beach (around 5 minutes by car).

In addition to the porch, about half of which is covered, there is a lovely enclosed sun porch. The ground floor also includes a dining room, a large living room, a full kitchen and a laundry room. On the second floor there are four double bedrooms. There is a queen bed in the master bedroom, twin beds in the other three. There are en suite bathrooms in two bedrooms, and two other second floor bedrooms share the third bathroom. There are two small attic bedrooms which share the fourth bathroom. Three of the four bathrooms have showers and tubs, the fourth a large footed tub.

The East Hampton village center, with beautiful shops and a large movie theater, is also accessible by bike or car (around 10 minutes by car). The area teems with fabulous restaurants.

                      Car: Recommended

                      We can sail across the pond to a sparsely used beach (because access is limited) on the Atlantic. Our house is close to the Hampton Classic Horseshow and to Shinnecock golf course. Art galleries, cultural events and upscale shopping abound. The beaches are among the most beautiful in the world.

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1987

                      About the owner: My great grandfather was a New York lawyer who used to go hunting on the Eastern end of Long Island. The story goes that he was hunting around Georgica Pond and shot a duck. It landed on a hill overlooking the pond, and he decided to build his house there. My grandmother and my mother both grew up in the city but summered in East Hampton. My mother married a Virginian, so I grew up in Richmond, but we always spent part of the summer in the house in East Hampton. The photo is of my daughter and me in my mother's house next door. In about 1970 my parents built another house on the water right next door to our house. In 1987 my husband and I took over the old house. We lived overseas, and I spent the summers in East Hampton, so my children have also ended up spending childhood summers in this house. There are paths through the 'maze' at the bottom of the hill, and they loved running through the woods to Grandma's house in the early morning. We love it here. My children, now all in their 20's and 30's, bring their friends down now for long weekends. They'll pack a lunch and take a combination of sailboats and canoe to the practically deserted ocean beach at the end of the pond and make a day of it. I have breakfast on the front porch, looking out at my perennial garden and making plans for it. In the evening we sit on the roofless end of the porch, looking up at the stars and out over the pond. It is heaven on earth.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Extraordinary view from the front porch. Boating on Georgica Pond. Ocean access without a parking sticker! Star-gazing at night from the front porch. Ocean breezes.
