This extremely private, secluded cottage estate is situated on its own 5 acre peninsula with 1700 feet of shoreline with spectacular sunsets and includes a sandy, child friendly swimmable beach with private dock for tenants' boat (max 30' draft). Accessible to all East End fishing grounds - a fly fishing paradise and 2 miles from Shinnecock Hills Golf Club - America's St. Andrews! Southampton Village and Ocean Beaches are within a 10 minute drive. Constructed in the 1920's as part of one of the South Fork's largest estates, the house is furnished with antiques and has a panelled and beamed Great Room and front porch with sunset exposure and an expansive view of the wildlife refuge across the bay. Every room has a water view. It is surrounded by perennial and rose gardens with an herb garden for the serious gourmand.
Young in outlook and heart Architect, semi-retired after many years of running a busy practice based in Park Slope, Brooklyn, who has lived many happy, successful and fulfilling years. At any given time you might find me working in the flower, vegetable or herb gardens, skiing in Vermont or more distant, out on the harbor for a quick sail or cruising to or fishing at Nantucket or points between, cooking in the kitchen or biking on a back road, visiting some exotic corner of the world, or just watching the sunset from my porch, meditating on my beach or with a good book or friends discussing the world in front of the fire. You might even find me dining outdoors with friends around the bonfire, or completing a perennial construction project around the house and, occasionally, perhaps even working over the drawing board or computer! And I will admit to just chilling out at times on the porch with a morning coffee or an evening drink and the occasional cigarette or Cubano!
I am very fortunate to have a great life and be able to live in one of the most wonderful corners of a well travelled world. And it is only made more enjoyable by sharing it with family, friends.... and new Homeaway Guests.

As a long time lover of nature and the great outdoors, with a healthy interest in the arts, and a great appreciation for the beauty of nature, there is no better place to live than in this warm house on this little peninsula, thrust out into the 'sea' with immediate access to all the advantages and recreation offered by the Hamptons and easy access to all of the culture and diversity of New York City. I have never lived, visited or vacationed anywhere that offered a more cathartic life experience!
The solitude and peace of an afternoon nap in the hammock with a gentle and cooling sea breeze off my bay, or the privacy of a 'skinny dip' from your very own private sandy beach, or dinner and a bonfire with family or friends on the bay under the stars or just a cocktail at sunset from the porch swing..... privacy and simple luxuries fit for a King or President at a cost available to us all! I challenge you to show me better!!!
