Hamptons rentals run the gamut from modest to superlative, from reasonably priced to Holy Crap!; we'll bring you three rentals per destination in various prices as we head east. Today's Summer Rental Roundup focuses on the lovely town of Water Mill.
502 Cobb Road, Water Mill; Town & Country
Price: $12,000 MD-LD
The Lowdown: This studio cottage is just really cute for a single or couple. It's very small at 430sf, but you get everything you need, including a grill and patio outside, and you can share the pool with the main house. It's located south of the highway and you can bike to the beach. The furnishings are vintage style and the wide-plank floors and fireplace add a lot of charm.
34 Tanager Lane, Water Mill; Saunders
Price: $100,000 MD-LD
The Lowdown: This spread is 5000sf with five bedrooms and four baths on 1.85 acres. There's a double-height entry, top of the line appliances, a TV room, a parlor and a sunroom. But who wants to be inside when you could be swimming in that
forest glade pool! It's gunite, heated of course, with a spa and waterfall.
315 Rose Hill Road, Water Mill; Elliman
Price: $1,200,000 (MD-LD)
The Lowdown: Indulge your Scarlett O'Hara fantasies at this 20,000sf mansion in Water Mill. Put on your hoop skirt and sashay down that staircase in "cast bronze and silver & gold leaf" under an early nineteenth-century stained-glass dome skylight. But the house also features twenty-first century technology including state-of-the-art security and a Crestron entertainment system. Retire to the "grand master suite," four guest suites, three staff bedrooms and eight fireplaces with antique mantels.
There's a $3-million Mark Stech-Novak-designed kitchen suite, including a prep kitchen with walk-in refrigeration, bakery with artisan deck ovens, and a finishing kitchen upstairs with under-counter refrigeration, heated pass counters, custom Moltemi stove and a commercial combi steam/convection oven.
Is that all? Fiddle dee dee! Of course outside there's a 25' x 50' gunite pool with waterfall, tennis court, koi pond, and a four-car garage with custom copper roof.
Price a little steep for your wallet? Remember, tomorrow is another day!
