Wish-booking summer? Here ya’ go – a trim, dreamy bungalow in the world famous “Hamptons.” The three-bedroom, two-bath house priced at under $1.5 million sits just a half mile from the village of Amagansett — home to the likes of Gwenyth Paltrow, Alec Baldwin, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Naomi Watts. The area has charming boutiques and lively, health-conscious restaurants. The beach is just a bit over a mile south; it’s a five-minute drive west to East Hampton Village and 15 minutes to the seaside town of Montauk to the east. This gorgeous cottage has been thoroughly modernized and is dripping with charm.
“Originally a fisherman’s cottage from the 1940s, this cedar-shingled one-level, three-bedroom, two-bath home was expanded and renovated to the studs in 2011, and incorporates a lot of space in its 1,600-square-foot frame,” she notes. “The great room – a combined living and dining space — boasts high ceilings and is surrounded by windows; the kitchen was custom designed by Smith River Kitchens and incorporates excellent use of storage coupled with high-end appliances, a breakfast bar and a custom banquette seating area. Located on .42 acres, the outdoor area – both to the front and rear – is extensive with a rear deck as wide as the house that is ideal for entertaining, an oversized outdoor shower with dual shower heads, and a beautiful built-in masonry barbecue. Extras include the Vermont slate roof, copper gutters, four zones of heating and central air-conditioning, room for pool and house expansion, as well as excellent privacy behind its white driveway gates and perimeter landscaping, along an abundance of blue hydrangeas that provide quintessential Hamptons curb appeal.”
Both charming and modernized — imagine early morning coffee in the breakfast nook overlooking hydrangeas, curling up by the fire in the living room, entertaining on that spacious deck and backyard. Lovely! It makes me want to break out the Ina Garten cookbooks and stage a clambake. The property at 478 Abrahams Path is listed for $1.45 million. Contact Sarah Minardi for more information.
