For some, November evokes images of pumpkin pie and apple cider—but we like to think of it as the perfect time to begin researching summer rentals. We'll be highlighting a few of the pricier options this week?starting in Southampton and making our way to Montauk by Friday. Today, we're taking a look at what East Hampton has to offer.
? 1. 123 Egypt Lane [Corcoran]
The Price: $275 (MD - LD)
The Skinny: Overlooking the Hook Pond nature reserve, this Peter Schulte-designed six-bedroom has a truly enviable location. Centered between the ocean beaches and village, the brand new construction strikes a terrific balance between convenience and privacy. It also features the usual high-end Hamptons amenities?heated pool, gourmet kitchen, library and pool side cabana.
? 2. 34 East Hallow Road [Corcoran]
The Price: $250K (MD - LD)
The Skinny: We're going to let the listing speak for itself on this one: "Over 2 1/2 years in planning and execution, renowned architect Donald Billinkoff combined the myriad Hampton elements of water, air, sand and grass when he created a 5,000 sf residence in 1998 that blends harmoniously into 2 acres of tranquility in East Hampton's Georgica."
? 3. 62 Jericho Road [Nest Seekers]
The Price: $300K (MD - LD)
The Skinny: Located in the Georgica Estate section, this 7000 sq. ft. home boasts six bedrooms, six bathrooms, a two-story entry foyer, three-car garage and a heated gunite pool (of course). Perhaps most notable about this rental is that its price is negotiable.
? 4. 36 Briar Patch Road [Prudential]
The Price: $450K (MD - LD)
The Skinny: Located in the Georgica Section of East Hampton Village, this 7-bedroom "offers all the classic amenities of the quintessential summer cottage in the grand manner." The inside includes a paneled library, banquet-size dining room, a chef's kitchen and staff quarters. Outside, the property features a guest cottage overlooking the gunite pool, a covered logia with fireplace, a spa and a complete grill center.
? 5. 81 Skimhampton Road [Nest Seekers]
The Price: $200K (MD - LD)
The Skinny: While this rental's listing language is a little questionable?"OMG Over The Top Excellence" and "xtra rooms" and "pure class from A to Z!"?it shouldn't detract from the 10,000 sq. ft. home's overall appeal. Situated south of the highway on more than an acre, the eight-bedroom home four fireplaces, a fitness center and the required heated pool.
