A gem in one of the most lovely, private areas of the Hamptons,tucked between Southampton and Bridgehampton. South of the highway off Mecox Road and a five minute drive to a clean ocean beach that is used exclusively for residents. We maintain it as a country house for ourselves and our family with children. The house is fully-air-conditioned although we seldom use it as there are great breezes that sweep up from Mecox Bay. Our home is extremely child friendly as we have many bikes, toys, games and books along with two extra junior beds for children under 7 years old. Sits on a large semicircular double lot that looks onto Mecox Bay, with a private dock to drop in our canoe. Specimen trees and shrubs surround the perimeter of our house which gives us complete privacy from the street. Our front yard is huge and is used for a playing field. Our back yard is completely fenced in with a heated out-door pool, pool house with bathroom, outdoor shower, gazebo, pergola with a swing, and Koi fish pond.The gardens around the pool are fabulously landscaped and have been on garden tours. We have beautiful outdoor furniture including chaise lounges, tables and chairs and eating space in the gazebo. There are four bedrooms, plus two rooms that can be converted into bedrooms and four full bathrooms with two Jacuzzis and a steam shower. Two large living rooms with one overlooking the bay and one that leads out to the gardens. We have several outdoor eating areas including a terrace overlooking the water. There is a sunroom, library, kitchen with top appliances, three refrigerators, two dishwashers, disposal, indoor and outdoor gas grille, and full dining room for 12 people. The house is especially designed for entertaining with total outdoor and indoor entertainment systems, extensive landscape lighting and total privacy. We have wifi, internet and several televisions. Our home is perfect for a wedding up to 100 people outdoors with an area for a ceremony and separate area for reception with a tent. Available in May, September, October and November. We have a cook available if desired.
If you have children, we can suggest all kinds of activities including summer camps, sailing programs, stables, tennis courts and activities at the libraries and the Parrish Art museum.
We are one mile from the the Polo matches and the Hampton Horse show. We have local farmstands, apple picking, cornfields turned into labyrinths that kids adore. The closest shopping area is Bridgehampton which has a King Kullen, a Citarella,Round Swamp Farms, beautiful art galleries and boutiques. Our home is on a dead end road so there is little traffic. This is a gorgeous area in one of the most desirable and exclusive sections of the Hamptons- 10 minutes from Southampton, 5 minutes from Bridgehampton, 15 minutes from Sag Harbor and Easthampton. We have many adult and children bikes and an Old Town canoe which you can use. We have life jackets, helmets, etc. We are situated in front of a migratory bird path so we see incredible wildlife from our upstairs livingroom.
