What/Where: A Gardiner’s Bay-front beach house in the Springs neighborhood of East Hampton.
Size: 1,100 square feet, 0.72 acres.
A bayfront cottage in Springs has recently come on the market, and while it’s in need of a few renovations here and there, the interiors are sunny and have lots of water views over Gardiner’s Bay. So this week, we want our readers to guess the asking price of this East Hampton beach house.
In 1,100 square feet, there are three bedrooms and two full bathrooms. Double-height vaulted wood ceilings, white interiors, and an open floorplan work to maximize the square footage on the first level, while skylights and hardwood floors throughout keep the space bright and open. A curved floating staircase leads up to a lofted living space on the second level.
While the living and dining room appear to be in good shape, there are some rooms in the house that look as if they may not have been updated since it was built in 1990—namely, the kitchen and the bathrooms.
We would totally gut the U-shaped kitchen, swap out those appliances for stainless steel, and add some floating shelves on the wall above the sink to add storage but keep it from feeling too crowded.
One of the bathrooms has a unique green tiled shower with glass bricks that we adore, but there aren’t photos of what the rest of that bathroom looks like—so we’re thinking that, like the other beige bathroom, it could probably benefit from a face lift.
Sited on three quarters of an acre, the beachfront property last sold in 2014 for $1,537,500—so we’re starting the guessing at $2 million.
