This spacious and welcoming house is open and airy and light, with tall windows overlooking the surrounding pines and dunes landscape. It is located in the prime Amagansett Dunes, south of the highway and close to town. It's a residential neighborhood, where kids can safely ride their bikes around and play in the streets. The ocean — which you can hear from the house — is just two blocks away.
THE DESIGN This mid-century modern house was built by an artist in 1969. It has a comfortably stylish look — just the right mix of beachy and chic. The house measures 2200-square-feet and has plenty of nooks for escaping. The house has central air conditioning, but you may prefer to leave the windows open to catch the beach breezes and fall asleep to the sound of the ocean.
There's a big, furnished deck that is perfect for alfresco meals at the table — which easily seats 10 — or just catching some rays on a lounge chair. There is also a retractable awning that provides great shade over the deck. Down below, there is an outdoor shower, a shaded seating area, and a hammock for relaxing.
Inside, you will find an open plan living/dining area, decorated with crisp white slipcovered furniture. There's also a bright, open sitting room off the living/dining area that is the perfect place to curl up with a good book.
The house is equipped with WiFi, an iPod-ready stereo, and an optional TV with cable. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need for cooking and entertaining: plenty of dishes, glasses, pots/pans, bowls, serving trays, coffeemaker, electric tea kettle, mixer, Cuisinart, microwave, toaster, dishwasher, etc.
We also have a few beach bikes for your use, including a fun tandem bike that we just bought.
THE VIBE This is the kind of laid-back beach bungalow where you can leave your surfboard propped against the house, put your feet up on the coffee table, and host a great dinner party. It's perfect for families, beach lovers, and adventure buffs who can spend the day swimming, biking, kayaking, stand-up paddling, exploring, or just relaxing. Foodies will love the assortment of grills (Wolf gas range, wood-fired, smoker). You can make meals using produce from the local farmstands and shellfish caught that morning on the bay beaches at low tide. The perfect end to a perfect day? A bonfire on the nearby ocean beach.
LOCATION The closest beach is less than a 10-minute walk away (just a couple minutes on a bike), uncrowded, and easily accessed via a private deeded path for neighborhood residents. Atlantic Beach and its famous Snack Shack is about a 15-minute stroll. It's just a few minutes' drive or a 30-minute walk to the center of Amagansett and the train/jitney, so a car is nice to have but not necessary, as there are house bikes for your use.
THE ROOMS There are four bedrooms (two upstairs, two downstairs), three baths (two up, one down), and an outdoor shower. All of the bedrooms have good closet space and are well-furnished (dressers, sidetables, reading lamps, etc).
Bedroom descriptions are as follows:
1. The upstairs Master has its own en-suite bathroom. This room has a queen-size bed.
2. The upstairs Twin room has two twin-size beds that can also be converted into a king. The room is right next to the main bathroom.
3. The long room downstairs has ample space, with both a queen-size bed and a full-size bed. This room opens onto an antique brick patio. It is right next to the shared downstairs bathroom.
4. The other downstairs bedroom has a queen-size bed, as well as access to the patio. It is also next to the shared downstairs bathroom.
Note that we prefer to rent to a family with a one-month minimum stay, but we are open to other options. Please inquire about shorter time periods, which require a two-week minimum stay.
Rentals are subject to East Hampton town regulations, and group shares are strictly not allowed.

About the owner: We are a family with a young child. We work in the creative fields, which is why the house has just the right mix of beachy and chic.
Why the Owner Chose Amagansett: We met at a bonfire in Amagansett and always wanted to own a home in the Dunes. When we saw this house, we immediately fell in love with it. The location couldn't be better — right near the ocean — and the house itself feels like something you'd see in Malibu.
