While the home at 42 Butter Lane in Bridgehampton isn’t in tip-top shape right now, the post-and-beam style residence built in 1900 has a lot of potential for a renovation. Being offered for $1,699,000 under Douglas Elliman agent Gabriela Braia, there are three bedrooms and two bathrooms in 2,200 square feet of living space, sited on a half-acre of land.
Period details throughout the home include wide-plank hardwood floors that came from a ship, the original front door, and the front door’s stained glass insert. We’re loving in the built-ins and the window seat in the living room—which we imagine will be repainted white, or re-wallpapered with something more contemporary, but whether or not the wallpaper will stay is up to the new owner.
There’s a fireplace in the dining room, which right now has blue walls, a blue radiator to match, and a mint green ceiling with a ceiling fan.
The kitchen is a particularly good size given the space available in the home. Currently, the kitchen has open shelving and dated countertops, but it looks like there’s a newer stainless steel refrigerator and room for a center island.
Upstairs, the master bedroom has red-painted hardwood floors, slanted walls, and some funky wallpaper. Though, the second-level bathroom looks like a tight squeeze.
Outside, one will enjoy a pool, open air cabana, and a two-story barn that has a kitchen and bathroom. The two-story barn could work well as an artist’s studio, pool house, or guest house.
If you bought this space to renovate, what would you do?
