288 Bluff Road, Amagansett, NY 11930
In 1902, fourteen unique, shingled style summer “cottages” were built along Bluff Road in Amagansett, overlooking the preserved 100 acre double dune and the Atlantic Ocean beyond. These homes seldom become available for sale. Designed to illustrate the relationship between the cottages and the natural environment, these homes feature elevated verandas, elegant covered porches and large windows opening to the view and the cool breezes of the Atlantic. This home at 288 Bluff Road possesses all of these wonderful features, aspects which have come to define the classic Hamptons shingle “cottage” of the early 20th Century. Features unique to this home include a curved glass staircase, tall first floor ceilings, period dentil molding throughout, a sweeping second floor porch, four fireplaces and a glorious covered, double wraparound front porch, fit for a solitary morning coffee or a glamorous wedding gala. Best of all, though, the current owners have spent the past decade modernizing the interiors and mechanicals to bring the home into the twenty first century, without sacrificing the charm and character of the bygone era. Featuring five bedrooms, three and a half baths, a brand new eat-in kitchen and marble bathrooms. There’s a formal dining room, a double living room, an oversized mudroom/laundry room with its own half bath on the first floor, an outdoor shower. Outdoors, the 20 x 40 heated gunite pool, surrounding bluestone patio, spacious yard and 300=/- sq. ft. freestanding garage all complete the features.
