Here’s a charming, rustic 1930s Amagansett house with a separate guest cottage. According to the listing, “The cornerstone of the living room is a massive stone fireplace in a descending waterfall pattern hand hewn from rock formations transported one by one from Ditch Plains in the family’s beloved 1936 Chrysler Airflow.” Cool! Also notable is the screened porch with vintage dyed slate, something you can’t get any more. The pine paneling and beamed ceilings add to the rustic feel; the kitchen looks to be 1950s-60s to us and could be updated fairly simply. The property is represented by Rylan Jacka and Bayard Fenwick at Sotheby’s.
What else needs updating? Possibly the three bathrooms, which aren’t pictured, and we might paint the ceiling beams white. There are five bedrooms, but it’s not clear whether that’s the total for both houses. Both the main house and the cottage offer elevated decks to take in the views and they also boast garages.
Plenty of privacy to be found with the treed five acre-lot. Of course there’s room for a pool and tennis if desired. Asking price for all this is $4 million; it sounds like the property has never been for sale before. “Three generations of the original owners have enjoyed this magnificent setting and share in its storied history. During WWII, the family welcomed military personnel using a nearby fire tower as a lookout for enemy submarines in the bay.”
