About the property

2 cottage lakeside compound w 4 Bdrms, 2 bthrms. (Sleeps 8-9)

Lucky you to have found this Swimmer's Paradise. Wake up and jump in the lake. Take a dip at night under the stars. Nothing to harm you in the silkiest of water (no motor boats allowed). 75' of lake frontage with sunset views over 85 acre Big Fresh Pond (BFP) beside 135 acre preserve! (BFP is 2nd largest and best body of fresh water on Long Island -a glacial kettle hole created 10,000 years ago from the most southern morraine of the last Ice Age- hence, it looks like the Adirondacks in the Hamptons) Has dock, kayaks and fish and turtles and birds. Beautiful outdoor living and grilling! 2 cottages with awe inspiring views comprise this wondrous private compound. . No car needed. Walk to deli, best fish store,etc..Tennis, gym and ball fields at Southampton Rec Center a bike ride away. A very very special property.

4 miles to ocean beaches, and 1 mile to Peconic Bay, but you will not want to leave.Bikes are available. An incredible nature experience awaits. Ocean beach parking permit avail. Feels like Maine in the Hamptons.

Keywords: Heavenly, quiet lakefront, spectacular sunsets, watersports galore,breezy, private, ranch house, near Conscience Point Marina and Southamppton Rec Center with squash and basketball and tennis, and fields.

By Southampton's biggest natural, undeveloped area .Very sunny and breezy.

About Richard

I have travelled the world and this is my favorite swimming spot. I am a family guy with young kids and am an avid sportsman.

Richard purchased this estate in 2000

Why Richard chose Hamptons

It is my favorite place to swim Very soft water.Properties rarely change hands on the lake as houses are cherished for generations and no new houses get built.

What makes this estate unique

Like a nature spa. Have a massage or stretch on the lawn or hammock by the lake and listen to the breeze rustle the leaves.

Very tranquil, like the Adirondacks by the ocean. I love to spend a day in 3 bodies of water- the Bay, ocean, and fresh lake, and finish with outdoor shower and grilling lakeside with sunset over the lake.

A hidden gem!

  • 5 of 5

Big Fresh pound is the best kept secret in the Hamptons - a beautiful lake, right near the village of Southampton.

The house is right on the lake, with a dock and kayaks to take advantage of it. Just wonderful!

Cottage on the pond

  • 5 of 5

We loved the tranquility...nestled in the woods overlooking the lake, waking to birds. The description and photos were accurate, and the cabin was clean with new appliances. Cooking ware was sparse but adequate. The owner lives in a nearby house and was quite friendly. We played tennis 5 minutes away and biked everywhere...deli down the road was super convenient. Great having internet as well. Best thing is the lake, you can jump in any time or grab a canoe and go explore. We will definitly come back to this gem!

Southampton Dream House

  • 5 of 5

I and girlfriend stayed at the listed property for a few weeks during the summer of '10. We found it to be thoroughly relaxing with an abundance of nature, tranquility and available activities. Spectacular views of the lake greeted us every morning, and we enjoyed kayaking and swimming daily. The house is modern and fully functional, clean and has excellent beds. We also enjoyed ping pong and biking, with equipment in the garage. The kitchen is functional tho not state- of- art cooking equipment. Tennis is a 2 minute bike ride away. We would gladly go back and found the rates to be reasonable. All in all a great value.

A gem. Very few places have the beauty, serentity and activitives that this lake house has and the location was superb. Sunset swimming and then BBQing with family and friends is the best. I left feeling rejunivated. I cant wait to schedule again.

Peace & Quiet

  • 5 of 5

There must be something in the water because swimming in the lake is magic. Circled the lake several times in the kayaks. Watching the sunset from the bathtub is a must. Big kitchen that opens to the deck. Spent the days lounging and BBQing on the deck, listening to tunes on that banging stereo and swimming. Highly recommend this place.
