About the property

17 Bedroom, 14000 square foot house with tennis and pool


Rental Registry number is 18-630

Our nightly rental in the off season is $4000 per night and in July and August is $5000 per night.

If you will be having an event for more than 50 people, there is an extra event fee of $5000.

The House has no heat and is only open for rent May 15-October 15.

This 100 year old residence, approximately 14,000 square feet in size, will comfortably accommodate 18 to 20 people or more. There are 11 primary bedrooms, with 20 beds (including four kings, five queens). In addition to these 11 larger bedrooms, there are also modest bedrooms (originally designed as maids' bedrooms), each of which have single beds--great place to stash teenagers. The residence includes a very large living room (approx. 2,000 square feet) and a large dining room, along with a spacious, well-equipped kitchen, including three refrigerators. Upstairs and downstairs laundries. Distant ocean views and Napeague bay views from our second floor, and a long view towards Montauk--our house is on the highest point for quite a few miles in either direction.

We do not rent to prom parties or any other underage group events.

The grounds include a tennis court (Har-Tru surface) and a large swimming pool with a jacuzzi.

Seven full bathrooms and two half bathrooms. 5 oversize bathtubs. Two outdoor showers. Pool table, ping pong table, piano, and a large Weber Genesis model grill.

The property has a significant history as the largest of the four 'Devon Colony' estates in Amagansett, built as grand summer homes in 1909 by four families from Cincinnati, Ohio, who also founded the Devon Yacht Club on the waterfront, one-third mile down the hill. The exterior of the residence is an Italianate style. The interior features Mission Style (Arts & Crafts) furniture, beautiful oak flooring and a grand staircase.

The residence is located on a four acre estate in Amagansett, NY, approximately 2 miles east of the center of town. The immediate neighborhood is a quiet estate area. Most homes are on three or more acres in a wooded setting.

There is easy access to the famous Amagansett ocean beaches (one mile away) as well as beautiful beaches on the bay side near Devon Yacht Club and Napeague (a mile or less). Ten miles of pristine ocean beach in either direction. East Hampton is six miles west, with many boutique shops. You will be perfectly positioned for night life and restaurants in three Hamptons towns--East Hampton, Amagansett and Montauk. In East Hampton, after shopping, dine at Nick and Toni's, East Hampton Grill, 1770 House or other fine restaurants. In Amagansett listen to live entertainment at Stephen Talkhouse, dine at Wollfers Kitchen, or savor morning coffee and food items at various places in Amagansett. Try the red-hot night scene in Montauk (10 miles east of our residence): Surf Lodge, Ruschmeyer's, The Sloppy Tuna. Or try the fresh seafood and watch the boats, waterside at Montauk's Gosman's Dock or the lesser-known Duryea's. Excellent kite surfing and windsurfing in Napeague (two miles east of our residence) at one of the best US sites for these two sports, followed by afternoon drinks at the Clam Bar, in the Napeague stretch minutes from our house.

You can dine well at home, choosing the best fresh seafood (try Stuart's in Amagansett) and five or six farm stands with local produce, along with numerous gourmet food and wine stores serving a highly sophisticated clientele.

For the arts, be sure to visit Guild Hall in East Hampton; or Parrish Art Museum about 20 miles away in Southampton. Browse numerous art galleries in East Hampton, Southampton, or Sag Harbor, along with frequent art fairs. Experience drip-painting at the small Pollock-Krasner House in Springs (15 minutes away)--call ahead to make a reservation. Tour the vineyards and wineries on the North Fork (an hour and a half each way, with two small ferry rides and lots of scenery).

Enjoy fishing in Montauk--the best fishing location on the East Coast--for striped bass and bluefish, or salt water fly fishing in the bays surrounding Amagansett, less than a mile from our house. Golf at Montauk Downs (open to the public), with ocean views (ten miles away), or walk through the fabulous Walking Dunes in Napeague (two miles away).

If you bring the kids, and we welcome them, they will find plenty to do at the house. They will also enjoy the Duck Pond Nature Preserve (10 minutes away), Fresh Pond with shallow water at the bay and a small stream (two minutes away), the Children's Museum in Bridgehampton (20 minutes away, with two Starbucks along the way) and maybe Dylan's Candy Bar in East Hampton. There are also two beautiful libraries with good children's sections, in Amagansett and East Hampton. You have two major saltwater choices for the family: the ocean, or the calmer waters at the bay. Our house is perfectly located between the bay and the ocean, a few minutes from both, at the narrrowest point in the Hamptons.

Our mission is to be the best value in the Hamptons for large groups who want many comfortable bedrooms and a great location for a full Hamptons experience, during the day and late into the evening. Great for family reunions, weddings, corporate retreats, or skip your next college reunion and have your college buds reune here with you. Our residence shows some of its age, which is why our rental prices are lower than one might expect for such a large home in a superior Hamptons location. Those who seek a flawless estate should look elsewhere, and be prepared to pay twice the price or more--if you can find one.

We do not have heat or Air-conditioning. The breezes on the hill keep the house quite comfortable.

About Lucy Sachs

My 5 brothers and sisters and I own this estate property that was built by our great grandfather in 1909. It has been handed down through the generations. We grew up in the summers with our many cousins as our children do now.

Lucy Sachs purchased this house in 1909

Why Lucy Sachs chose Napeague

There is lots to do very near this property as you can see in our general description.

What makes this house unique

The great thing about this house is that, as it is big and has 17 bedrooms, there is plenty of room to have lots of friends or family vacation together.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful experience at Lucy's grandiose property. While hard to believe, the house is even better than in the pictures. We were in awe visiting the place which has a Downton Abbey feel. It is nicely furnished and the beds are super comfortable. We had a Chef as part of our group of 17 people and he was in paradise with the space and all tools provided. Lucy was very responsive and flexible with our check-in time. We all want to come back again next summer for a longer stay.

The perfect house for a group retreat

  • 5 of 5

I booked this house to host the sixth annual Brooklyn Poets retreat: a group of 29 people, including 24 writing students. We needed a space big enough to accommodate all these people comfortably and have writing classes and workshops and conferences. The house looked great in the photos but it exceeded everyone's expectations in person. When I first stepped into the house, I couldn't believe that it just kept going ... and going. You think it's big and then it just keeps getting bigger. It's an amazingly luxurious space that also has a lot of history and character. Everyone was overjoyed when they showed up for the retreat, and we had our best retreat ever. Lucy was incredibly helpful in answering questions about the house immediately and giving us tips for the area, including how to get to the beach—and she even helped drive some of our retreaters TO the beach when she saw us walking alongside the Montauk highway. Definitely want to host our retreat here again next year and beyond. If you've got a big group and need a great house, this is the one for you!

Owner's Response: This group was terrific! It was such fun knowing all of those poetic brains were soaking up the history of the House. They respected our family house and left it pretty much the way they found it. I do hope they return. They know where to find me!

Wow! Exactly what we were looking for

  • 5 of 5

Lucy's house is everything you can need and more. It was perfect for our company's offsite. We were able to bond as a team, enjoy the outside and pool area, go to the beach, and still have more than enough room to sleep. It has so much charm and history that it's hard to look past it. Lucy was very accommodating and answered all our questions beforehand. We will definitely be back next summer!!!!! Thanks again!

Amazing. Plenty of room

  • 5 of 5

The house has plenty of room to accommodate up to 30 guests. There is plenty of room for parking. The host was very helpful with everything that we needed. We had towels and sheets for everyone. The common areas are gigantic, you can have a dinner at the table for everyone that is staying there. There is plenty of outdoor space for lawn games or just relaxing. We went with a group of 25+ and could not complain about a thing. The stay was fantastic!!!

Huge House - Perfect for Big Groups

  • 5 of 5

The house exactly as advertised and the host Lucy was great! The house had plenty of space to sleep 30 (although we were slightly less) and enough sheets / towels / toilet paper to go around. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a massive older house. The pool and outdoor areas are in perfect condition. The inside is definitely a a little worn, but very comfortable and perfectly functional. Would definitely recommend this to anyone heading out east with a big group.

Thanks Lucy!

Grand was very nice!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for a bachelor party, we needed a house that could house a big group of grown up (boys). The house had everything we needed, from billiards, to ping pong, to foozball, tennis court, the outdoor pool etc. It kept us busy all weekend and the property is enormous and beautiful! Thank you to Lucy, the owner who was a pleasure to work with.
