Alfred Scheffer, affectionately referred to as the “dean of East Hampton architecture,” designed the Amagansett beach house that is now for sale at 28 Central Avenue, reports Newsday. The listing is priced at $3,995,000.
Scheffer designed the home for Maria Fleetwood, which was completed in 1958. The designer included many of his signature qualities to the home, such as the stone wall fireplace and vaulted ceilings. Fleetwood’s son, Blake, is the current owner of the home.
According to the Newsday article, Maria Fleetwood’s other son, Francis, offered input on the home when it was being built. At the time he was only 12 years old, but it must have stuck with him. He then went on to become an architect himself, and even built homes for notable names such as Alec Baldwin, Paul McCartney, and Calvin Klein.
The home is considered a beach house or bungalow, but at 2,500-square-feet the home is considered large for such a description. Not that the size is anything to complain about—it sits on a lot that’s just a little under an acre, making it one of the larger homes in its vicinity.
On the inside, one will find five bedrooms (plus a bonus room), and three-and a-half bathrooms. There is not one, but rather two master suites: one on the first floor, one on the second. Definitely something worth looking into.
The exterior of the structure was recently updated, including cedar shake shingles and a coat of fresh paint. The backyard includes a heated pool and mature landscaping.
