We saw the potential in the original house. We renovated and improved the property to bring the beauty and serenity of the outdoors in and maximize the charm, added a larger gourmet equipped kitchen and master suite. We landscaped turning a plain exterior into a slice of heaven! We always love our stays and find it very hard to leave. Our ever growing family including grandchildren enjoy our home and find it a very special place for fun.

A shortcut from Rte. 27 to our street cuts off
a few miles of heavy traffic on the weekends.
Southampton, just 90 miles from our Manhattan residence, offers delightful shopping, dining and beaches while just minutes away we can feel far from the action but happy to know we can join it anytime we want.
The very private and quiet getaway can make you feel very far from the rest of the world but if your in the mood for the lively summer scene it is just a few minutes away.
