Raw textures In the sheltered Noyack Bay of the Hamptons, Sunset Drive’s history is yoked to the high seas. You’ll still find the marina dotted with yacht clubs. But while boats bob nearby, this home’s style is set in stone. The lofty rooms are painted in the most natural of hues – from the dining room’s dramatic slate-greys to the kitchen’s cotton-whites – and raw floorboards meet subway tiles in the bathrooms. And with Foster Memorial Beach just a walk away, you can swap wood grain for sand grains with ease, or the home’s stone patio for Main Street’s sidewalk, where 19th century original buildings now serve as boutiques, cafés and the local Bay Street Theatre. Take a private tour of the bay from Long Wharf Marina, and when you’re after refreshment, we’ve heard that Sen for fresh sushi or Sag Town Coffee for a delicious iced brew are the locals’ choice. Natural path It takes just over two hours to escape New York City and reach the shores of Sag Harbor. If you go by car, there’s plenty of room on the driveway. Or if you’re travelling en masse, the Montauk train runs regularly from New York to Bridgehampton Station – a twenty-minute round trip from home. Sticks and stones Of this home’s natural materials, you’ll find stone, wood and linen creating a neutral canvas for organic textures and intriguing furnishings. Enter through the dining room, with deep shelves displaying your host’s collection of books, artwork and keepsakes, including a bull’s skull that rests by the fireplace. The long wooden table seats eight and there’s plenty more room in the living area for post-dinner lounging, where armchairs and sofas upholstered in fresh, muted linen are framed by vaulted ceilings. There are three pale bedrooms on the main level. In the quiet master you might rise from the king-size bed, atop a flat-woven rug, or take an awakening soak in the open wet-room style shower. And beyond are the two neat bedrooms – a clean-lined bunk room and trundle room – both with leafy views. Be lured outside to the well-kept gardens, where there’s a choice of two patios. One is paved with slate and laid out with loungers and sofas, while the other is a deck of stripped wood planks, where a generous table with workbench-style seating is set beneath the vines. And if you want more than the heady scent of hydrangea and lavender in the garden, pretty Mashashimuet Park, with tennis courts – and an otter pond – is just a ten-minute drive away.
