Main House: 3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms
Located less than 5 minutes from Main Street in Bridgehampton Village, this 19th century traditional cedar shingled cottage has just been lovingly renovated in 2012/2013 (Phase I) & 2016 (Phase II), to include all modern amenities while still preserving the historic charm! I purchased this home in 2012 from the original owners after being in their family since it was built in 1899. I brought in my architect and worked closely with him to create a beautiful 3 bedroom, 2 bath (+ separate pool house) home that would nod to the history of the area, while still offering all the bells and whistles!
The entry to the main house is from a bluestone patio leading to a large front deck facing the lush front lawn surrounded by privet and forsythia hedges. On the first floor, there is a open living room/ dining room with cathedral ceilings surrounded by windows facing East, West and South and French doors leading to the rear deck and huge, private back yard. The great room is decorated in a casual, beach-y style with white slip-covered sleeper sofa, over sized chairs, colorful floor coverings over hand-hewn hardwood floors stained ebony, a 55' flat screen TV, a dining table that seats 6 in the DR, a crystal & chrome chandelier, a glass front buffet, cathedral ceilings, antiques & eclectic decor. The open LR/DR leads seamlessly into the brand new open kitchen, flooded with natural light, with a 5 piece stainless steel appliance suite (gas range; over range microwave/convection oven; side-by-side fridge with ice/water in the door; dishwasher; wine fridge & garbage disposal) surrounded by Carrera marble counter-tops & a subway tile backsplash. The kitchen is equipped with 2 sets of china, dozens of wine and champagne glasses, serving pieces galore & drawers full of vintage table linens (no paper plates at TODDYVILLE)!! The kitchen leads into the casual, glass enclosed breakfast room with cathedral ceilings, a vintage wrought iron pagoda chandelier and an antique oak table & chairs.
Also on the first floor are 2 bedrooms: Blondie's Room has an antique full size, wrought iron bed, kiln rug, crystal lamps, linen roman shade, an ample closet & painted antique furniture; Tigger's Room has a full size bed, 3 large windows, painted oak furniture, a original Phyllis Adler lamp & woven silk/wool rug (both rooms have wonderful natural light and hardwood floors). The first floor windowed bathroom has the fully restored original cast iron claw-foot tub & pedestal sink and the original chrome sink fixtures (fully restored).
The entire second floor of the home is taken up by the Master Suite: the Master Bedroom has the original 116 year old oak floors, frosted glass French doors, windows with all four exposures, a pillow-top California King size bed upholstered in white velvet and dressed with high thread count Ralph Lauren & Land's End linens, 10' ceilings, antique furniture, silk, wool and leather floor coverings and a wall of closets. The en suite Master Bath is luxurious and vintage feeling at the same time with hexagon Carrera marble floors, a White marble topped wood vanity with double sinks and a wrought iron bakers rack filled with thick, thirsty Egyptian cotton bath sheets. The master shower is 5' x 8' and enclosed in floor to ceiling glass and offers 3 body sprays, a full shower spray and a hand shower! Also in the master bath is a French door leading to a private, roof top outdoor shower over looking the property, gardens, pool and pool house!
The pool house is a separate three room building steps from the pool and the perfect place to play games or have a shady lunch on a sunny day. The pool house has 10' ceilings, a sectional sofa, cabinets filled with board games, a wet bar with a beverage fridge and separate ice maker & a private outdoor shower to wash away all the sand from the beach - all cooled by a ductless A/C system.
The home sits on 1/2 an acre surrounded by 8-15' tall privet, pine & Rose of Sharon hedges & fences to ensure total privacy. The outdoor spaces of my home are as impressive as the indoor with a huge rear deck surrounded by cable railings and offering a outdoor seating area with a 7 piece sectional sofa and an outdoor eating area with a teak, glass topped dining table with seating for 8 under a huge umbrella! The rear deck leads to a flat & sunny private back yard with mature plantings (including hosta, tulips, daffodils, wild ferns, succulents, tea roses, Montauk daisies , Queen Anne's Lace, Rose of Sharon hedges, day lilies, irises, hydrangea, flowering privet hedges, 2 huge oak trees, a flowering pink dogwood & a 150 year old Maple tree (with bird feeder & bird bath underneath for nature viewing from the LR or deck!) and a sunny, 16' x 38' heated, Gunite swimming pool with multi-colored LED lights and a gentle stair entry & a deep water seating ledge; the pool is surrounded by grass and Bluestone patio with gas fire-pit and multiple cushioned topped chaise lounges. I also have assorted pool floats and toys to make the pool fun for the entire family! Outdoor grill, pool safe dishes & glassware and tons of Ralph Lauren over sized beach towels complete the backyard experience!
If you prefer the white, sandy beaches of Long Island, Bridgehampton Main Beach at the end of Ocean Road on the Atlantic Ocean are located 3 miles straight down the street (a 10 minute, flat road bike ride). The grocery store, pharmacy, general store, liquor/wine store, dry cleaner and gift boutiques are located in Bridgehampton Commons, a 5 minute drive. The Hamptons Classic Horseshow is a 5 minute drive. Two Trees Farms (Bridgehampton Polo) is an 8 minute drive.
Main Street in Bridgehampton offers these dining options: Almond (American), Topping's Rose (American - 5 Star), Pierre's Bistro (French), The Golden Pear (Casual), World Pie (Gourmet Pizza), Bobby Van's (Steakhouse), Pizza Place (Family Style), Candy Kitchen (Diner and Ice Cream), & Bridgehampton Sushi.

Perfection on Lumber Lane!
What a wonderful place is TODDYVILLE!! We were fortunate enough to spend three weeks here in July and couldn't have been happier with the house we rented, especially because we rented sight unseen coming from Chicago and Austin. My partner and I arranged this trip for our families to meet our new daughter, and to get to know each other better and the house was the perfect place for that largely because it is so perfectly located that we rarely had to leave the house. The house is filled with light such a positive energy - and the yard and gardens (new this year the owner told us) were so wonderful and lush - we didn't spend much time inside at all. All the bedroom are private and had super soft linens and all the baths filled with oversized, thick towels; the kitchen was spacious enough for 2 mothers and a sister to share the kitchen with me and none of us tripping over the other. The pool was wonderfully sunny and so perfectly situated near the firepit that night swimming was as much fun as the day. Channing Daughters WInery is at the end of the street in one direction and Main Street in Bridgehampton is at the other - the beach is 2.4 miles away - and easy bike ride. We had such an amazing time on this special family trip, we are hoping to return next year with the whole family - and my partner & I are planning on visiting Todd's other property in Maui for our 10th anniversary in January!!
PERFECT IN EVERY WAY!!
I got to experience TODDYVILLE for 3 weeks in August 2014 on a family trip with my brother & his family - and let me tell you - I felt like we won the lottery in scoring this house! The place is located walking distance from the train station (great since I drove but my bro took the train) & Main Street Bridgehampton village, so getting around was really easy and we never had to fight for a parking space in town. The vibe of the house is FUN - just really comfortable and relaxing, like you are at your favorite Aunt's place - not pretentious and over-decorated, but you are still aware the house is practically new. The rooms are filled with brightly colored furniture and art, a real beach-y feel, and throw pillows everywhere - so you can take a nap as easily on the LR floor as on the sofa or in one of the bedrooms! There's a huge open kitchen with a wine fridge and the requisite ice maker (a necessity for a summer beach vaca) - and niches to sit and hang out everywhere. We spent most of our time on the HUGE deck (probably 600 sq feet) or in the sunny, private back yard lounging next to the killer heated pool (with colored LED lights - like a scene from Saturday Night Fever)! Huge outdoor sectional sofa & dining table as well as new gas grill & 6 teak pool loungers with thick cushions! The house is about 2 miles to the beach - so we did that one day - didn't have a parking permit, so I dropped everyone off (with Tommy Bahama beach chairs and coolers provided by owner), drove back to the house to park & rode one of the house bikes back to the beach.
Toddy, the owner (hence TODDYVILLE) is a hoot - and was easy to work with every step of rental process from the initial reservation & deposit, to prompt replies to follow up emails, helping us with local dinner reservations & even accepting our grocery delivery before we arrived!! He met us in person (as opposed to leaving us a key and telling us to fend for ourselves) and did an hour long walk through of the property with us (that might have been a bit much). Toddy has his rap down since he's had a place in Maui since 2003, that he rents through VRBO too.
End of the day - this place rocks and I'm looking forward to coming out again, and am also planning a Hawaii vaca - where I will be staying at Toddy's place there!
HIGHEST PRAISE FOR TODDYVILLE!
We were lucky!
So thankful this home was available at the end of the season for a last-minute family vacation! We had such a relaxing and enjoyable week, we will be back next Summer! Home is perfectly located where my husband and I were able to walk to nice restaurants/bars in the evening but just far enough away from the Village where it was quiet and peaceful. Home is beautifully appointed - newly renovated and clean, clean, clean! Bedrooms furnished so nicely - bedding, etc. very comfortable. Nice, large, newly renovated kitchen with new appliances - we ended up eating 'in' much more than anticipated. Wonderful pool - private and secure where we were comfortable leaving our teenage and tween daughters at the pool while we were out shopping/walking the Village. The backyard is huge, beautifully landscaped - we enjoyed meals on the large deck. This home was much more spacious than we could tell from the pictures - we ended up hardly leaving the house! We are looking forward to staying at this home again in 2014!
HOME AWAY FROM HOME
This cottage was absolutely charming first it was beautifully decorated there was comfy bedding in all the bedrooms thick fluffy towels, spotlessly clean beautifully landscaped where u can just sit outside relaxing all day just looking out at the landscape great pool well equipped, helpful & knowledgeable owner easy rental process and damage deposit returned quickly. Will definitely will be coming here to visit very soon and request it to family and friends. True Delight.
A terrific week in the Hamptons
My friends and I (3 couples) stayed at Toddyville for a week in July. This rental was fabulous, exactly as described. Each room was superbly decorated, new and immaculate. My husband and I stayed in the master suite which was spacious and airy with a shower spa to die for. My friends stayed in Blondie and Tigger's rooms - they were comfortable and beautifully decorated with plenty of space. The kitchen, living room and dining areas were comfortable and inviting with everything you could possible want. We spent most evenings out on the deck and by the pool in the beautifully landscaped yard. We had a car, but were able to walk to town and restaurants that the owner suggested. Toddyville is a beautiful home and perfectly located, we hope to return again next year.
Heaven in the Hamptons
What an amazing home to enjoy the best of the Hamptons!! We were literally walking distance to A Taste of Two Forks and so centrally located to all the hot spots for dinner and shopping. A quick walk into Bridge provides every amenity but you'll only leave toddyville for social activities. Once inside the charming elegance and expert decor give way to comfort, relaxation and privacy. The salt water pool felt like swimming in silk and we relaxed day and night on the grounds. With a master kitchen, you can entertain in or out. We grilled local fish and explored the farmers markets. The house was great for our group - the upstairs master suite with outdoor shower is only rivaled by the claw foot tub. You should not miss this oasis.
Thanks Vic for the rave!! One thing: I add a water softener to the pool, but it isn't salt water. Hope you guys come back next year!!
Being walking distance to Main Street is a HUGE benefit, as it means never having to search for parking and being able to have a cocktail with dinner and not have to drive home! My home is located 20 miles from Montauk Village, 13 miles from Amagansett Village, 9 miles from East Hampton Village, 6 miles from Southampton Village, 3 miles from Wainscot, Water Mill & Sag Harbor Villages and 1 1/2 miles from Sagaponack Village. Celebrity sightings in this area are the NORM, not the exception!
