About James Reeves

I have restored countless historic properties from Charleston, SC and Richmond, Virginia to the East End of Long Island.

James Reeves purchased this farmhouse in 2014

Why James Reeves chose East Hampton

763 Springs Fireplace is truly unique because of its place in the farming, fishing and artistic historical fabric of East Hampton.

What makes this farmhouse unique

The house retains its historic farmhouse charm and the coziness of exposed beams and woodburning fireplaces while showcasing eclectic more contemporary furnishings and art.

Great relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful stay. The house is very charming, decorated with great artwork and in a great part of town close to many things. The house is clean and spacious with everything you would need. The pool is very large and a great place to hang out. We really enjoyed our stay here and James was very attentive with all our questions and needs.

Great summer rental!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I loved our vacation week in the house. Very clean, well appointed, and wonderful space. The pool is enormous and secured by a surrounding wall for our grandkids safety. James was very responsive to our texts and any question was immediately answered. Hope the house is avsilable next year!

The Real Hamptons

  • 5 of 5

My family and I are rebuilding our house in Amagansett and decided to rent this summer in order to be close to the area we love. We are so happy that we chose to stay at James' house. His house is painstakingly appointed with furniture and art that is an eclectic mix of the Hamptons of the past and today, so you feel a combination of nostalgia and modern luxury. All of the amenities you could possibly need are at your fingertips. All of the rooms are very clean and cool. There are spacious grounds to explore, with tiny deer wandering in between old stables. The kitchen and bathrooms look to have been recently renovated.

James is a great host and responded quickly to any questions we had.

We were all very sad when we had to pack up and leave.

WONDERFUL HOUSE! highly recommended!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for a long week end to unwind following our wedding in NYC and we were very happily surprised! The pictures don't do it justice at all ! it is spacious and airy , with a nice lay out and it is decorated with great tastes! It sits on a very nice piece of land and the pool is beautiful and large . We mostly did not use it because of the unfriendly weather but James the owner made sure it was clean and ready and had it checked for us.

Though It is located on a road, it was quiet and there was very little noise !

James , the owner was very nice , very easy and friendly and was easily reachable . I would totally rent it again and recommend it to anyone !

What a beautiful house. Really well restored. Very spacious and comfortable. I would book again.

  • 5 of 5

The house is just as beautiful as it appears in the photographs. We were there over Thanksgiving so the pool wasn't open but it certainly looks spacious and inviting. All our communications were timely and helpful. We had easy access to the house and equally easy departure. The house was very clean and well stocked with basic provisions.

I would definitely rent this house again

Louse Point and Gerard Drive on Accobonac Harbor
Car: recommended

Located in Historic Springs near Accobonc Harbor, Gerard Drive and Louse Point- beautiful bay beaches perfect for stand up paddleboarding, seakayaking, fishing, swimming, shell collecting, beach bonfires or just lounging with a good book. Ashawagh Hall (.1 miles away) hosts art openings every Friday night and a Saturday Farmers Market. The Springs General Store (also .1 miles away) is the perfect country store for coffee or prepared meals and is also where Jackson Pollock bartered for groceries with paintings. The house is less than 10 minutes from the Ocean Beaches of Amagansett and 20 minutes from Montauk. This is the relaxed, eclectic, pastoral alternative to the rest of the Hamptons, a place that has retained its historic, artistic and agricultural attributes.
