New Amagansett cottage with guest house on property asks $3.45M

Includes shelving rather than cabinetry in the kitchen

A cottage just went up for sale in Amagansett, asking $3,450,000.

The structure was built in 1956 and has four bedrooms and four-and-a-half bathrooms. The cottage has about 2,800-square-feet of living space on an acre lot.

The living room in particular has high cathedral ceilings and large sliders on two sides of the room, which opens the room right to the outdoors. In a cottage, a ceiling like this is particularly notable.

There is also a media room, or second living room, with a fireplace, light washed beam ceilings and white walls, and flooring. There is ample shelving for books, making this a good space for a library as well.

The eat-in kitchen has overhead shelving rather than cabinetry, which is a growing trend in small spaces and particularly found in city apartments. Shelving offers a great opportunity to show off beautiful dinnerware that may or may not have cost too much at Anthropologie. No one is judging anyone, here.

It’s funny that a cottage would have an additional house on the property, as guest cottages are often found on large estates and described as “servant’s quarters,” or something along those lines.

But this home has a legal pool house with a heating, air conditioning, half bath, and outdoor shower to complete the structure. The listing also describes it as a “writer’s studio” or a “guest cottage.” Either way, it’s cute.

A screened-in porch connects the home with the outdoors. The exterior features mature landscaping, outdoor landscape lighting, a heated pool, and detached two-car garage.
