Hamptons Peeping: Unique waterfront compound has it all — tennis, pool, dock and cottage


What a classic Hamptons home should be: South of the highway on approximately 2.8 acres, a restored, turn-of-the-century, shingle-style residence with pool, tennis, waterfront guest cottage, and 112 ft +/- waterfront on Mecox Bay including dock and evening sunsets. Storybook setting (in fact, the Tony-award winning actress Gwen Verdon once lived here) approached from a long hedged drive to its own parking court that leads to the main residence, a converted barn that retains many original details from wide plank wood floors to extensive bead board walls and interior sliding wood doors.

Renovated and maintained regularly for many years, the residence and its waterside cottage both feature new kitchens with marble counters, appliances, and fully integrated fiber optics. The attached screened porch looks out over a stone patio with central mature trees, stone walls, and lawn down to the waterside cottage and dock. A brick patio off the dining and kitchen borders the in-ground heated Gunite pool, and the lawn extends to the tennis court and viewing pavilion. The separate garage offers spaces
for two vehicles.

This complete estate offers privacy, bucolic landscaping and water views. Once settled, you’ll never want to leave.
