Only three hours east of New York, peaceful Amagansett feels oceans further. On the coast of the Gardiners Bay, its sands have been trodden by famous feet – from off-duty presidents to inspired artists. And this is where Waters Edge finds its place, too. The ceilings are timbered and vaulted, the walls white as surf, and dotted among its elegant armchairs and coffee tables you’ll find a retro telescope and gentlemanly grandfather clock. This is the place to let hours slip by – where it’s never too early or late for a dip in the pool, or a cabana-side cocktail.
And there are plenty of other spots to lay your towel – private access to the beach awaits beyond the garden, and the sands of Indian Wells and Atlantic Avenue are just a ten-minute drive away. You might have brunch nearby at the Meeting House, plan a Tuscan supper at Sotto Sopra, or browse the antique shops lining the Montauk Highway. And East Hampton is just a short drive onwards, with designer shopping and quaint ice cream parlours – Scoop Du Jour comes sweetly recommended. Or make the break and head north to Cedar Point Country Park to wander nature trails, visit the historic Cedar Point lighthouse, or just take in the yawning views of Gardiners Bay.
Hop on the Hampton Jitney or the Long Island Railroad and make the scenic three-hour journey to Amagansett from Manhattan. Though perhaps the most direct way to Waters Edge is behind your own wheel – it’s a three-hour drive along Route 27, and up to three cars can be stowed in this home’s garage.
The ocean is Waters Edge's closest neighbour, and you’ll feel its breeze as you walk down the slate steps. Inside, the dark floorboards are lovingly varnished, the antique furniture is gracefully arranged, and no matter which of the three sitting rooms you choose, forest and sea views surround. Find the long, characterful kitchen beneath the sloping ceiling, with the dining room just beyond its dark-wood counters – the distinguished table has striped nautical chairs for eight. The master bedroom, though simply decorated, offers uninterrupted views of the waves, and double doors open onto the decked balcony should you wish for a closer look. Or find the cabana and wet bar – sure to keep sunbathers satisfied – by the quiet guesthouse, which also has its own kitchen and queen-sized sofa bed. And whether you spend the afternoon relaxing on a poolside lounger, or down at the beach with a kayak in tow, you’ll find the waters here are all yours.
As well as a happy family, this house is also home to a pair of pooches, and guests with severe allergies should take note.
