This house used to be a standard shingled Hamptons cottage, until the current owners, Arts and Crafts fans from California, renovated and expanded it, borrowing many ideas from the architects Greene & Greene. Now it features a staircase reminiscent of the one in the Gamble House, cloud lifts in the kitchen, and an Arts and Crafts porte-cochere, along with Voysey rugs, Stickley furniture, and Dirk van Erp lamps.
Of course there are plenty of outdoor living spaces, this being the Hamptons, including an outdoor pizza oven, and a pool, all set on 0.97 acre south of the highway. In all, there are five bedrooms and 4.5 baths in 5350sf. Asking price is $6.75M, which is reasonable, although this house won't appeal to everyone.
