Unique & Charming Cottage in Springs

Bright and welcoming and decorated with a blend of antiques and restoration hardware, our home is designed with an eye to both style and comfort.

Everyone's favorite room in summer is the massive sun room/screened-in porch with spectacular gas fireplace and vaulted ceilings. It holds a round dining table and a generous seating area. (You might just live in this room!) The grill is right outside in our landscaped fenced in garden ringed with rhododendron, hydrangea, tall trees and a dreamy hammock.

The first floor has a cozy living room w WBF, a media room with 46" flat screen & Sonos sound system, kitchen, breakfast nook, second bedroom and bath.

Both the living room and media room have pull out sofas and can be closed off with sliding barn doors, giving you the option of 2 additional "bedrooms."

Cable TV in the media room. Wireless internet throughout our home. Central air and heating.

The grounds have a built in sprinkling system and all yard work is included in the rental price.

Upstairs is the very private master bedroom and bath with beautiful sunny views and a king size bed.

The home is bright and cheerful and optimally located at the head of Gerard Drive, offering guests instant access to a scenic 3 mile run, bike ride or a dip in the bay.

One can easily hide away and enjoy this peaceful spot or drive 15 minutes to the ocean beach and all the fine restaurants of East Hampton.

The LIRR train station is 10 minutes away. There is a Jitney stop in the village, also about 10 minutes away.

Lynn and I will always be available by cell phone, text or email to answer any of your questions. And we will leave a handy notebook filled with tips about how to operate the TV, Sonos System, and WiFi.

About Geof Bartz

My wife, Lynn Sullivan, and I live on Manhattan's Upper West Side. Lynn is a veteran real estate broker and I am the supervising editor for HBO Documentaries. She grew up in New York while I migrated from Detroit many years back. She loves the NY Giants; I root for my childhood team, the Tigers. She's a Columbia grad; I went to Notre Dame. Our daughter Juliet is a junior at Northwestern.

Geof Bartz purchased this house in 1981

Why Geof Bartz chose Clearwater Beach

I bought this house with friends as an investment in 1981. We each pitched in a few bucks, not much. Eleven years later I bought them out, married, and with Lynn began the first of a series of renovations which has brought the house to where it is today. Our last redo was 3 years ago when we added a huge sun-room, central air, and opened the house throughout.

What makes this house unique

I fell in love with our house when I first saw the view of Accabonac Harbor a few steps from our porch. Plus, the hamlet of Springs is the perfect combination of quiet, rural getaway and easy access to trendy East Hampton, Amagansett, Bridgehampton, Montuak and Sag Harbor.

Gerard Drive Beach (great walk!)

Our house is in The Springs, a charming hamlet made up of the Springs General Store, where Jackson Pollack shopped; Ashawagh Hall, the site for art exhibits and a weekend farmers' market; a blacksmith's museum; and a lovely white, wooden church. A mile south of us is The Pollack/Krasner museum, set in the house where Jackson Pollack revolutionized modern art with his drip painting technique. This is a MUST SEE, especially his studio which still has his paint splattered all over the floor.

The Springs surrounds Accabonac Harbor, a three mile long wildlife persevere ideal for kayaking, wind surfing, swimming, and sunset picnics. We highly recommend bringing an evening meal to the beach at the end of the road across from our house and watch the sun go down. We'll supply the comfy chairs!

We are a 15 minute drive from East Hampton village with its movie theaters, legit theaters, restaurants, trendy stores, and jaw dropping mansions. There are lots of terrific spots to eat in East Hampton - our favorite is RACE LANE, a cozy place about 6 miles from our house.

Of course, swimming and surfing beaches are everywhere. The East Hampton MAIN BEACH has lots of waves, life guards, and food stands. But there are more than a dozen others to chose from along the ocean stretch from Southampton to Montuak.

Golfers can drive 30 minutes to Montuak Downs, listed as one of the top 50 public golf courses in the US. There is also a small executive public course named Poxabogue in the village of Bridgehampton, about 20 minutes from us.

But our favorite thing to do each day is simply stepping out our front door onto Gerard Drive, directly across from our house, and simply walking the three mile round trip to waters' end and back, checking out the waves, the ocean birds, the cottages and the folks along the way.
