East Quogue house description

Fewer than two hours from NYC, this truly delightful three-story house nicknamed 'the Birdhouse' is what a Hamptons house should be. It is located in a friendly residential neighborhood two blocks south of East Quogue village, a short walk to the Hampton Jitney stop and the village dock, and a ten minute drive to the beaches. This house has been lovingly updated and thoughtfully decorated emphasizing the turn of the century graceful qualities of the broad-board floors, the hand- crafted staircase, the sash windows, the glass transom doors, the high ceilings (some coffered), the wainscoating, and my whimsical detailing. Perfect for anyone looking for a uniquely charming and relaxing getaway. With a tennis court, pool , and outdoor seating you will never want to leave! The house custodian welcomes our guests and helps them settle comfortably in this well-loved Hamptons sanctuary.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2005

                      About the owner: I grew up spending summers in this area and when I had children I decided it was time to buy a house of our own. After a long search for a special house I discovered this B&B and it just made me smile. It was a lovely house then, but after many years of attention and tender loving care it has become a true gem. It is a house with a soul and being in it just makes you feel good.

                      Why the Owner Chose East Quogue:
                      I fell in love with the warm welcoming character of the house and I have always loved the understated charm of East Quogue village.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      This location has all the advantages of a year-round community that is still bustling with life in the off-season. Easy access to all the Hamptons attractions, 20 minute drive to the Tanger outlet mall, short walk to town for a coffee and bagel, Japanese/classic american restaurants, magnificent Italian food shop with excellent selection of meats, cheeses, panini, and hard-to-find ingredients, Tuesday evenings live music on the Green.
