Owner info

Year Purchased: 1987

About the owner: European and American couple, living in both New York and Europe.

Why the Owner Chose Water Mill:
We fell in love with the house for its remarkable European personality, excellent design and layout; so many roomy bedrooms and family spaces that allow lots of privacy, 3 fireplaces. We also chose it for the property -- the beautiful gardens and trees; landscaped since the 1920's and renewed today, the portico for arriving guests, and the expansive hardwood porch where we spend lots of time.

The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
It represents the traditionally beautiful and classy Hamptons -- close to the beaches, large and wonderful European-style home, huge wrap-around porch, private pool, a short drive or bike ride into Southampton, convenient to farm stands and Mecox Bay for paddling or canoeing. Bikes are available for guests . Hearing the ocean waves from our bedroom window, enjoying the beautiful beaches in all seasons;, bike riding, gardening, having dinner parties out on the porch, breakfasts on the patio...
