East Hampton house description

Grey cedar-shingled 6-bedroom waterfront contemporary that sleeps 8 - 10 people on two acre property abutting 60 acres of wetlands and nature preserve. Local architect designed our home and 2 neighboring homes. Access by small private road about 1000 feet off the main road, making it quiet with no street noise. Distant from neighbors and fully screened along property edges with a forest of mature cedars.

Water access to Accabonac Harbor from a wide mowed path leading to a 400-foot raised wooden walkway ending in a dock with stairs to the shallow harbor (3-5 feet in depth). Excellent summer swimming, typically much warmer than the ocean and fun for kids. The house comes with a variety of toys to enjoy the harbor, including a golf cart, 3 SUPs (stand-up paddleboards), a kayak, fishing poles, as well as a 5-person dinghy down by the dock. There is also a half-mile walking path starting from the property and extending around the perimeter of the nature preserve along the wetlands abutting Accabonac Harbor.

Waterfront view of Accabonac Harbor is enhanced from large floor-to-ceiling windows in the living room which is on the top floor overlooking the beautiful property, wetlands and nature preserve. Off the living room is an entertainment deck with Barlow Tyrie teak bench, chairs, and a coffee table - perfect for enjoying cocktails or coffee. The large living room has 2 areas - one facing the water (East) with 2 large sofas, coffee table, and additional chairs. The other side has built-in seating by the fireplace with two large skylights (facing West) and 42-inch flat screen TV/DVD for family viewing. A half-bath is on the same level. A 20-foot electriclly retractable awning can be extended out from the living room toward the harbor and a second retractable awning extends over the deck off the living room.

There are 6 bedrooms. Four are separated in a bedroom wing on the lower level (below the living-room area) including a master with king bed and separate bathroom. Off the master is a small porch facing the harbor, with sliding doors providing a separate entrance and access to the pool area. A small retractable awning can be extended over the porch. The other 3 bedrooms on that lower level each have twin beds and share a large bathroom. The bedroom wing has its own access directly to the pool area.

The other 2 bedrooms are in separate suites, each with its own bathroom off the middle level of the house. One bedroom has a queen bed and sofa (which opens to a queen pullout) with a table and large 52-inch flatscreen TV/DVD. A small private balcony provides beautiful views of the property and water; it has its own retractable awning. A separate half-bath connects to the bedroom. The sixth bedroom is located off the dining room - a former artist's studio, with its own sliding door entrance to a small deck facing the harbor. That bedroom contains a full size bed with a full separate bathroom.

An efficient kitchen features stainless steel refrigerator and dishwasher, 2 sinks, with an island for additional counter and storage space. Off the kitchen is the dining room with its own fireplace, 20 ft ceiling and a Danish teak dining table that can seat ten. The dining area has a great view of the harbor through the full windows and large sliding-glass door, giving access to large 300 square-foot deck for outdoor dining. The deck, which was completely replaced and expanded in 2011, has a Barlow Tyrie teak table, 10 teak chairs, and a large stainless steel Jenn-Air 5 burner, 6 foot gas grill. A 14-foot wide electrically retractable awning covers the full deck.

There is a heated swimming pool (16' X 32') with outdoor heated shower and nice views of Accabonac Harbor. The decking around the pool was completly replaced in 2011, along with new lounge chairs. At the West end of the pool is a brick patio area and another 14-foot wide electrically retractable awning that can cover the table and chairs during a hot summer day. There are three cabanas, one with a sink, one with a shower and the third with storage and pool equitment.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1980

                      About the owner: We are family of 5 with 3 grown daughters living in New York City. Our children have enjoyed growing up in our special family home. The girls are young professionals and their busy lives keep us from enjoying the house as much as we would like.

                      Why the Owner Chose East Hampton:
                      We looked at over 100 homes and fell in love with this house immediately - from the extraordinary light, large property, and beautiful vistas. We are close to several bay beaches and the ocean beach is about 15 minutes away.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Our family enjoys swimming and clamming in the harbor, kayak rides, outdoor grilling and dinners.
