Why Ted and Ellen Newman chose Hamptons

The land was bought in 1984. The house was designed by us in collaboration with Leon Rosenthal AIA and a local builder Telemark Construction (Stanley Dalene & Bros) whose company (Telemark) now, SDC Construction Inc., managed the 2013-2014 major renovation project.

What makes this house unique

The house was configured to conserve energy and have minimal impact on the surrounding woods. The tall trees surrounding the house provide shade in the summer and the south facing glass exposure produces good passive heating in the winter months. It remains much that way today.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

A splendid home! The house is big, bright and airy. Very clean and roomy. All the rooms were spotless and very welcoming. A nicely stocked kitchen. The deck is expansive and you have plenty of privacy amongst all the surrounding trees. There were several birdhouses around the outside of the home so you get to see and hear a variety of birds throughout the day. A very lovely touch that we enjoyed!

Would definitely stay again and highly recommend. Thanks Ted!

Owner's Response: Thanks Kathy for your nice review. Glad you enjoyed the birds. They're one of the great aspects of being in the Northwest woods. I haven't joined the ranks of the pro birders yet but might after I retire. They'll eat out of your hand if you're patient and look away.

Amazing house and location

  • 5 of 5

This is a great house with a great location. Amazing large rooms and a master that you would want for your house. Conveniently located to east Hampton, only 10 minutes drive. Nestled in the trees that gives you nature on your door step and privacy to relax. Ted was really helpful and was a breeze to get the keys. Would definitely book again as there where no issues, even though I had arranged this from New Zealand. Thanks Ted.

Great location & house

This property is a great place to base yourself in east Hampton. Great location as close to everything but is very private. Amazing pool & spa and would book again.

Girls Weekend

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful house!!! Even though it rained most of our trip we still had a blast. We plan to rent from Ted again in the summer so we can enjoy the pool.

Only Suggestion is to remove more items from the fridge as we had to squeeze stuff in the freezer and refrigerator.

Owner's Response: Suggestion noted. We do try to keep the fridge side reasonably clear but for short term rentals it isn't always practicable. We try to keep it to staples so guests don't have to go out to buy basic consumable staples on the firs day - milk , juice, butter etc. Anything in the fridge is fair game

Beautiful, quiet home with great open living area

  • 5 of 5

Ted and Ellen's house is a beautiful property. There was plenty of space and accomodations for our group, as well as plenty of options for bathrooms. The living area is large and open and allowed for a great getaway location for our friends to be around each other. There is also a large dinner table that comfortably sat 8 individuals for a family-style dinner.

The home was perfect for our family gathering for Thanksgiving. Owners are wonderful to work with.

  • 5 of 5

The home is comfortable and inviting. We had everything we needed and more. The setting is beautiful in the woods of East Hampton. The owners were so easy to work with and made this rental experience so satisfying. Space abounds in this lovely home that is fully equipped such that all you need to do is stop at the grocery store! I would highly recommend this property and hope to rent it again in the future.
