Preserving an abundance of authentic character updated with a skillful decorator’s eye, this 1870s shingled cottage is a stylish interpretation of a Hamptons classic. The 1755 sq. ft. interior is warm, relaxed and inviting with a modern twist on period details. A crisp white paint applied to the original wide plank floors reflects light in the beamed-ceiling living room with massive fireplace and continues throughout the main floor to a lovely all-season sunroom with white brick flooring and mullioned sliding doors opening to the rear garden and patio. A liberal dose of richly-hued grey enhances the traditional windows, interior doors and moldings, fireplaces, staircase and glass-paneled living room entrance. The center of the house serves as a spacious dining room fitting an extra-long table -- a perfect gathering space for candle-lit dinner parties and casual farm-fresh meals. The eat-in cottage kitchen offers open shelving to display wares, marble accents, stainless steel appliances and a built-in pastry board. A 1st floor laundry room is conveniently attached. A full main floor bath with original claw foot tub surprises with a whimsical wall treatment of vintage images. Upstairs a gracious beamed-ceiling master with fireplace, full bath with period finishes and a guestroom share access to a cozy reading room with built-in bookshelves located on the landing. Soaring specimen trees and dense foliage create a privacy screen for the .55 acre property able to accommodate a pool if desired. Beyond charming, this Amagansett gem is within easy reach of ocean and bay beaches, organic farm stands, a fresh seafood market, and the village square.
