About the owner: I am a film industry professional and real estate developer who has a passion for restoration, historical perspective and the tasteful details that make a Village like East Hampton keep such a sense of community. I am passionate about local food and like to garden both for the beauty and also just to get my hands dirty.
Why the Owner Chose East Hampton: Known worldwide for it's stunning natural beauty and combination of fertile soil and seas as well as a climate tempered by both the Atlantic Ocean and Peconic Bay, the East End of Long Island is quite simply a natural paradise. The spectacular natural light that graces these shores has been bringing painters and artists here since the 19th century. The pristine white-sand beaches that were once celebrated have been one of the great cultural equalizers from the Gatsby era Wiborgs and their guests, who were the actual basis for many of F. Scott Fitzgerald's characters,
The Unique Benefits at this House: One of the greatest benefits I get when staying at this property in East Hampton is just seeing my neighbors and visitors a during my frequent walks to town which is only a few hundred yards away. I love visiting the volunteers who staff LVIS (The Ladies Village Improvement Society) and finding bargains.
