Beautiful, unique architectural property in perfect location
Robert's home was such a unique, beautiful beach cottage, which is not surprising for an architect's own property. We loved how cozy it felt, the location (on a private road within a stone's throne from the harbor, where we watched the sunsets and the beautiful swans of Three Mile Harbor), and the design of the home. Our guests all marveled at how unique the design was. Robert was also extremely responsive and helpful. The outdoor shower is refreshing and perfect, and believe it or not we had to actually use the wood-burning stove for cold August nights, which means you won't miss the fact that there isn't AC (and on hot days, the cross breeze does the trick). We loved playing games on the big kitchen table; eating our dinners out on the breezy, big, open-air patio; having Aperol spritzes by the bay; and driving to the nearby farmer's markets, Pollock house, and variety of beaches. And all in such a design-forward setting -- a truly unique experience! P.S. Forgot to add - there are gems in Robert's book selection. In addition to a book about his own work, who can pass up the original Emily post?
It matters that the right guests select the right house! Sharing it with this Xiyin and her husband was delightful. They were extremely neat, and according to all my neighbors, very respectful tenants. If future renters read Xiyin's review carefully, they will love the house for the right reasons!
Modern Design Springs Beach House
We enjoyed our stay.
The house is lovely with a big yard and only steps from Three Mile Harbor with private access to the water.
Very close to farmers markets, Jackson Pollack's home and the village of East Hampton.
It was barely a 15 minute drive to the beach in Amagansett where we like to go.
While the house is terrific it is also a no frills beach house, with really only the bare essentials, no air conditioning, no TV, no indoor shower and minimal decor which was we were looking for but is not for everyone.
The only real critique we had was that a number of screens and screen door are in need of repair, otherwise we thought it was great.
Fantastic cottage in a lovely location
This is a very special place. The house is wonderfully designed and perfectly comfortable, yet preserves the feeling of a beach / camp cottage. It feels very much like being outdoors — it is very open to the breeze, but also to rabbits, chipmunks, deer and the hilariously territorial swans on the harbor. It is in a very quiet spot in Springs, nestled between a private entrance to the Three Mile Harbor and a little farmers' market at the other end of the lane. We did all our swimming, sunset watching, cooking, and lounging about without as much as an incursion into the whole Hamptons scene. We'd love to come back, and sooner rather than later.
