This charming cottage sits on a private and beautifully landscaped half-acre, adjacent to open farmland, and is a 10-minute walk from the East Hampton train station and a 15-minute walk from the hourly buses to and from NYC. The house is about a mile from the center of the village where you can enjoy all the stores, galleries, boutiques, movie theater, and restaurants on Newtown Lane and Main Street. Guild Hall is about a half mile away. The ocean beach is less than two miles away, and within easy biking distance. Also nearby is the Dayton Farms farm stand which offers fresh fruits, vegetables, flowers, honey, and home baked goods.
The home was built by the owner’s great grandfather in 1900 as a summer cottage. It has three second floor bedrooms (Two queens, and one twin bed), and sleeps five comfortably. There is one full bath on the second floor. The first floor has a sunny living room that is comfortably furnished, and includes an upright piano. There is an adjacent country kitchen with wide plank wood floors and a dining area. For those who enjoy cooking or just being able to blend a delicious breakfast smoothie, the kitchen is fully stocked with pots, pans, tools, and gadgets - from a Kitchen Aid to a Vitamix. The finished basement is furnished with a large game table and couch, and it contains the second full bathroom as well as the clothes washer and dryer for laundry.
The backyard has an enclosed garden and potting shed surrounded by lush open lawn. There are two Adirondack chairs and a hammock for relaxing, reading, and sunbathing. The deck is furnished with chaise lounges, Weber grill, and an outdoor dining table for six with a market umbrella. There is also an outdoor shower for rinsing off after a day at the beach.
The house has high speed internet and cable with a 29-inch Smart flat screen TV in the living room and Smart flat screen TVs in each of the bedrooms. The wireless internet connection is convenient for working from the back yard or deck. There is also a landline.
The house is heated by oil, and cooled by new high-tech ductless air conditioning on each floor. The air conditioning is controlled by individual remote controls which allow the occupants on each floor to select the temperature comfortable to him or her. These units also have the ability to provide back-up heat if needed.
Because of its size, this house is more suited for intimate dinner parties, small family gatherings, or romantic getaways, as opposed to large house parties.
