We're sure this house would be worth more on a private lane somewhere in East Hampton, rather than right on Main Street, but we think a smart buyer will snap it up quickly anyway. There are high hedges to provide privacy, and we think it would be lovely to live on beautiful, historic Main Street and be able to walk to shops or restaurants or the movies. This early 20th century Queen Anne-style house is on Curbed's architectural walking tour, as a matter of fact. It belonged to George A. Osborne, from one of East Hampton's oldest families—Osbornes are recorded in East Hampton at least back to the 1650s. The house, which is 6000sf, has been nicely updated. (The staging strikes us as a bit fussy, though.) It offers six bedrooms and six and a half baths on .43 acre. There isn't a pool but there's room for one on the pretty grounds.
