This quaint Cape Cod style house is minutes from all the shops, galleries, boutiques, and restaurants in East Hampton village. Visitors to our house always rave about our convenient location.
The ocean beach is two miles away, and within easy biking distance. The East Hampton train station is a 5 minute walk away, and the bus stop for the Hampton Jitney, the hourly bus to and from NYC, is about a ten minute walk.
Although it's ideal to have a car to explore the entire East End (including Montauk and Shelter Island) the house is so close to village amenities, you can walk to all the best restaurants, including Nick & Toni's, Fresno, 1770 House, The Palm, and Rowdy Hall. Just down the street is Mary's Marvelous, the spot for morning coffee and muffins or sandwiches for the beach.
There are two village grocery stores and several specialty food stores. All are less than ten minutes walk from the house.
The property itself is rare for its location: although it is so near the village, the house sits on a quiet one acre of land - perfect for relaxing outside, reading in the back yard chairs, playing with children, or outdoor barbecuing. Because of the property size, it's a great place for kids - to run around or to play ball. There is a half-acre field behind the house (perfect also for golfers to practice or for a private yoga lesson).
The back patio includes an outdoor dining table and chairs, with a market umbrella, and a barbecue grill. There is a hammock on the lawn and two chaise lounges for sleeping, reading, or sun-bathing.
The house is a traditional East Hampton family house that has been owned by the same family for multiple generations. It has three bedrooms (one queen, one double, and two twin beds), and sleeps six comfortably.
There are two completely new bathrooms, each with overhead European rain showers and separate Hansgrohe hand-held showers, complete with custom glass enclosures and marble floors.
The owners enjoy cooking, and the kitchen is completely outfitted. There is a SubZero refrigerator, a Bosch dishwasher, and a GE gas range. In addition, we are fully stocked with pots, pans, tools, and gadgets - from a lobster steamer to a Kitchen Aid. Because of its size, this house is more suited for intimate dinner parties, small family events, or romantic getaways, as opposed to large house parties. There is a large cookbook library in the kitchen and living room.
The house has high speed internet and cable with a 48 inch Smart flatscreen TV in the living room and a 32 inch Smart flatscreen TV in the master bedroom. If you need to work while here, you can use the internet while lying in the hammock in the back garden.
The house is heated by city gas, and cooled by new high-tech ductless air conditioning in each room. The air conditioning is controlled by individual remote controls which allow the occupant of each room to select the temperature comfortable to him or her. These units also act to purify the air against allergens.
The basement contains a state-of-the-art LG clothes washer and a GE dryer for laundry.
For winter rentals (or on cool spring or fall nights), the living room has a wood-burning fireplace.
Thank you for your interest!

I am an attorney who divides my time between Brooklyn and East Hampton. I have keen interests in gardening and cooking, and enjoy doing both in East Hampton.
David purchased this House in 1952
Why David chose East Hampton
This property is a family property that my family has owned for several generations. My ancestors had a farm on this and the neighboring streets, and this property is part of that original tract.
What makes this House unique
The property is centrally located for all things in East Hampton village. It's great to walk to the grocery store in the morning and to restaurants at night. At the same time, because of the size of the property, it has a distinctly rural feel to it. No matter how busy an East Hampton summer weekend is, my property's back yard and field is a welcoming, quiet, and relaxing spot.

the perfect weekend getaway

Location, Location, Location
Not only is the location of this home perfect for walking into town and catching the train, the home is perfect for a family gathering. The host, David, was very attentive and responsive from the time I made the booking until the time I left. He was very helpful in recommending restaurants, grocery stores and transportation options back to New York City and getting to the airports. I would highly recommend David and his home!
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay
My husband and I stayed in David's house for nine days in June 2017. We totally enjoyed our vacation there. The house was as described and pictured in the listing. It was very clean and comfortable and had everything you would need for a relaxing stay. We didn't really do any cooking, but you certainly could, if you were so inclined; however, with all the good restaurants in the area, including David's recommendations, we didn't have a problem finding places to eat.
We loved the location, just a five minute walk to the center of town. Being able to walk into town removes the headache of dealing with traffic and then having to find a place to park. We went to the beach everyday that the weather was nice. It is, however, expensive to park at the East Hampton beaches and parking spaces are not always available, so we took advantage of the free shuttles run by thefreeride dot com, for rides to Main Beach. The open air electric shuttles run more or less continuously from several locations in town, including from the long-term free parking lot at the YMCA, which is a five-minute drive from the house. You could easily walk to a shuttle stop from the house but if you are carrying chairs and other beach stuff, driving to the parking lot is more convenient.
We had one rainy day so we spent the day visiting the Parrish Art Museum in Southampton, which I recommend.
It was a pleasure to deal with David before, during and after our stay. We would definitely consider returning, hopefully in the near future.
We are so happy you enjoyed your stay at our house. Taking the nearby free shuttle to the beach is a helpful recommendation, especially during the busy summer season. The Parrish Art Museum is a great rainy day activity. We hope you'll return to East Hampton soon!
This is a gem of a house. The location was perfect for us, right down the street from the village and wonderful work-out locations. It was clean, comfortable and felt really special. I have used VRBO before and have connected with wonderful home owners along the way and David was one of the most helpful in making our time unique and perfect for our time in East Hampton. Thank you David! Thanks for sharing your history with us through your home and village.
