This "south of the highway" estate is located in Village of Sagaponack, the jewel in the crown of the Hamptons. Open farm fields, beautiful estates and the best of the Atlantic Ocean beaches. We were fully rented during the premium summer months again for the 9th year consecutive year. In this compound, the architect designed central house is modeled after the 18th century houses along Sagg Main Street. The main houses combined have 8 ensuite bedrooms including 3 master suites with large marble baths and wood burning fire places. Separate studio/pool house with wet bar, fireplace, bath, bed and living rooms. The main houses contain a large Chef's kitchen with mahogany and marble counter tops and stainless steel appliances. Other public rooms include formal dinning room, living room, grand stair hall, library, two large family rooms (one with regulation pool table), family breakfast room, mezzanine card room with private deck overlooking the grounds, butler's pantry with wet bar, exercise room and large wine cellar/tasting room. Also, laundry and mechanical areas/rooms. All building are are centrally air-conditioned and heated and equipped with large flat screen TVs, wireless internet and Sonos sound system. The floors are wide-plank quarter-sawn white oak or marble.
The cathedral ceiling pool house/studio has living room with fire place, bedroom, wet bar, marble bath and large mahogany deck and outdoor shower. Blue stone patio and deck surrounds a 20' x 50' heated gunite pool with flowering plants and majestic row of crepe myrtles. The original house has a classic columned rear porch with mahogany floors, wicker furniture and a swing. Cook on an outdoor grill on the blue stone patio off the living room, dining room and kitchen equipped with tables and chairs. Enjoy an abundance of flowers in bloom in ever direction from a house and pool house with dozens of large windows and French doors.
The property is a series of inerlocking gardens (including a vegetable garden), an orchard and rolling lawns hidden behind dense 20 foot tall hedges (the real defining element of the Hamptons). Only minutes down a beautiful farm field road are the wonderful beaches of the Atlantic Ocean. There are no guest houses, hotels or "share" houses in the Village of Sagaponack (and very few in the entire area) so the beaches are left to those owning or renting private single family homes here. At the compound, there is over an acre under fence (and a special toddler pool fence if you need it) so pets are welcome within reason.
The compound is fully equipped with everything you and your family will need for the perfect Hamptons vacation. Hotel quality professionally finished linens and towels are by Matouk and Frette. Quality cook wear, cutlery, china and glass ware fill the kitchen and butler's pantry. The house is our real home with art, antiques, rugs and furniture collected over a life time of travel and living in New York City, Washington, Atlanta and the Hamptons.
We have rented the house during the Hamptons season - Memorial Day to Labor Day - since the central house was completed in 2008, primarily to families with children. Often there will be three generations ranging from grandparents to babes in arms. The towns and hamlets of the Hamptons, including the Village of Sagaponack, do not allow short term rentals or to rentals to groups of not related to each other or so called “shares." We are allowed to have two, two-week rentals within the season and the remainder must be 30 day rentals. You will find this property as warm and comfortable and welcoming as any fine 5 star hotel anywhere in the world. The 2018 season open. But. only 2 weeks remain available in 2017 - September 5th through the 20th.
Grounds keepers, maid service and chefs are available on request. And, you couldn't be more centrally located in the world famous "South of the Highway" Hamptons.
