About the property

17 Bedroom, 14000 square foot house with tennis and pool


Rental Registry number is 16-2422

Our nightly rental in the off season is $3500 per night and in July and August is $5000 per night.

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 Amagansett

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.

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.

The "Big House" was perfect for our birthday party in the Hamptons. The house comfortably fit our group of 35 people with extra beds to spare. We enjoyed the hot tub, tennis court, great lawn for sports and BBQ. Proximity to Amagansett, East Hampton, Montauk and the beach was very convenient. The owner Lucy was a pleasure to deal with and always quick to respond to any questions.

We rented the house for a family reunion. We had 17 people - 6 children between the ages of 5 and 10, 2 teenagers, and 9 adults. We had a fabulous time! The house, with its great pool and clay tennis court was perfect for us. We sat down for dinner every night, all of us together at the same table. The house was spacious and grand, while at the same time very comfortable and not stuffy or pretentious. Everyone had plenty of room and privacy, as well as as much togetherness as we wanted. It has a wonderful, old world charm relating to a gone-by era. We enjoyed all the games, like ping pong, fooze ball, and pool, as well as croquet and board games. The kitchen is very well equipped, and more than adequate for our group. The house was just what we expected from the pictures, and we were not at all disappointed. We wish we could go back every year!

Great wedding weekend in a beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful house! We rented the big house for our small wedding in late September. The house provided a beautiful backdrop for our ceremony and reception, and also served as lodging for 30 of our guests. The house can easily accommodate large groups without feeling crowded, and is well stocked with everything you might need. The owners were a pleasure to work with. They always responded to email and text messages quickly. We had such a wonderful time, we hope to return again and again. It was a truly magical weekend in a beautiful home.

The Big House in Amagansett

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family enjoyed a perfect weekend at the 'Big House' at the end of June.

The house was exactly as described - a perfect place for a reunion. We swam, played tennis, pool, ping pong and made memories to last a lifetime.

Our group was large- 27 adults and children ranging in age from 76 - 18 mos. - and the house provided us with all the room we needed - 17 bedrooms, a large living room, a spacious dining room, well equipped kitchen, great back porch plus the pool, hot tub and tennis court.

The owners were a pleasure to work with and very accommodating.
