This house, by architect Alfredo De Vido, is slightly dated on the exterior but the cedar shingles help soften the effect. Inside, it’s like Attack of the Knotty Pine. (The furnishings go so well with the house we wonder if it’s still with the original owner from 1974.)
We’re not sure this look will ever come back, so we would advise the new owner to invest in a lot of white paint immediately. After that, this will be a very cute house–the staircase/fireplace is pretty groovy. “Cute” because it’s pretty small at 1250 square feet, with three bedrooms and two baths. Presumably new baths are needed (they’re not pictured), and we’d definitely renovate that angular kitchen. The property is listed by Martha Gundersen at Brown Harris Stevens.
No pool, but with 0.93 of an acre of land, there’s plenty of room. Or one could expand or knock down the house, but we tend to think demolition would be a shame. Price for all this is $3.1 million, which strikes us as not bad. It’s not very easy to get a SOH East Hampton house for less than that, and many of them have less land. Location is not the absolute toniest, but it’s fine. What say you?
