The property at 132 Main Street in East Hampton just came on the market for $4,950,000 earlier this week.
There are three legal dwellings on the acre-and-a-half property, with a total of eight bedrooms and eight-and-a-half bathrooms. There is 5,050-square-feet of living space between the three spaces.
The four-bedroom, four bathroom main residence is also known as the Frank Cartwright house, built in a Queen Anne style in 1885. Frank Cartwright was a mason, and is buried in the South End Cemetery.
Though the home has been updated, there are still many of the original features in the home, such as the staircase, pine floors, and the wood-burning fireplace.
The home maintains its rich history while still having the modern finishes that home buyers are looking for. According to the listing, the current owners have kept the home in good condition—and by the photos, that seems to hold up.
The kitchen has been updated, but it looks like the pine floors have been maintained here as well. What’s not from the original home are the stainless steel appliances, custom cabinetry, and Calcutta Gold Marble countertops.
One will find cathedral ceilings and French doors that lead out to the brick patio in the first-floor master suite.
There are two guest cottages on the property. One used to be an icehouse, but now boasts vaulted ceilings, a kitchen, two bedrooms, and two bathrooms. It also has its own brick patio.
The other guest house, built in 1908, sits at 1.5 stories with two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The kitchen in the second guest cottage was recently updated.
In addition to the two other legal dwellings, there is also a detached garage and original outhouse on the property.
