A Perfect Summer Rental Cottage for Investors


This pint-sized cottage is perfect either as an affordable (for the Hamptons, anyway) summer/weekend pied-à-terre or as an investment. Asking price for the 700-square foot, two-bedroom, one-bath cottage is $1 million, which strikes us as pretty reasonable, given that the property, which is also teensy at 0.10 of an acre, is bayfront. What makes it an ideal investment, we think, is that unlike much of Lazy Point, there’s no East Hampton residency requirement with this property. This property should easily rent for $35,000 Memorial Day-Labor Day.

Everything in the house looks to have been newly redone, with a nice deck overlooking the water and even a little fireplace to put candles in. It’s represented by Susan Ceslow and Kim Fagerland at Elliman. Napeague’s calm waters make the area very popular for paddleboarding or windsurfing. If you’re less adventurous, you can dig for clams right out your front door. What say you? Worth a look?
