Description

Life's a beach Though the metropolis of Manhattan is territory of the light-footed, those wishing to really stretch their legs head two hours east to the Hamptons where wide streets give way to lakes, woodland and the Atlantic coast. In Amagansett, a coastal town just a little beyond buzzy East Hampton, there’s no merit in standing still. But between trips to pretty Indian Wells Beach – it's less than a mile from the door, around a refreshing 12-minute walk – and clamming in the bay, there’s plenty to enrapture the restless at Double Dune House. The decor is by turns haute and high-octane, contemporary monochrome chairs and faux-fur rugs overlooked by camping-style wall lamps and outdoorsy artworks. And there’s a generous garden too – remove stubborn sea salt with a dip in the pool, then settle down at the patio's ample seating for dinner courtesy of the outdoor grill. Though we’re sure you wouldn’t mind, it’s only a short walk to find more competitive sporting pursuits – South Fork Country Club, where Bill Clinton once played a spirited round of golf, is a short hop across the road. And victories can be celebrated close by too, with Townline BBQ and Fresno Restaurant less than ten minutes' drive west down Montauk Highway. Or, if you prefer a little retail release, on East Hampton's Main Street you'll find high-end boutiques as well as Tiffany & Co. Springboard From Manhattan, the Hampton Jitney makes its way to Amagansett in three hours, while the Long Island Rail Road drops passengers within walking distance from this home's door. But should you prefer a faster pace, it takes a little over two hours to drive from central Manhattan to the home, which is also roughly how long it takes from either of New York’s airports. High spirits Don’t let the TV snug’s carved chess board fool you, Double Dune House was designed with more animated activities in mind. Let boisterous young charges exhaust themselves on the garden’s climbing wall and swing set while you conserve energy atop a poolside lounger, or stroll to the temptingly close beach to make bigger waves. In the play room there’s a full-height chalkboard, sure to enthuse both the young and the young-at-heart, and tall sloped ceilings are an airy contrast to the living area’s dark sofa and studded, upholstered ottoman. Put the well-equipped kitchen to the test with fresh produce from the renowned local farmers’ market, or make the scenic seven-minute drive through Napeague State Park to the aptly named Lunch instead – we hear it’s home to the most delicious lobster rolls in town. When you return, there are four decadent bedrooms in which to rest sated stomachs.
