Less pretentious than its neighbor to the west, East Hampton, and less hipsterish than its neighbor to the east, Montauk, Amagansett, the second easternmost town in the Hamptons, just keeps getting more and more popular. And by “popular,” we mean “expensive.”
St Marys Lane, where this newly listed Amagansett estate is located, is very close to Indian Wells Beach, but it’s also a circular road with no outlets, meaning that it’s quiet and safe with no through traffic to muck up the serenity. Encircled with gracious homes on acre-plus plots, the exclusive enclave has a large grassy common area in the middle of the circle for children to play.
The mostly beige and grey interior design is a bit dull, though obviously very luxe, and as with many lavish Hamptons estates, there are so many amenities at home, it’s a wonder anyone bothers to leave. With eight bedrooms and eight bathrooms, plus four half-bathrooms, the cedar-shingled home is quite spacious at 8,800 square feet. Built in 2008 and in turnkey shape, the spacious property is available via Kyle Rosko and Marcy Braun of the Eklund | Gomes Team at Douglas Elliman, with a $15 million asking price.
The double-height foyer shares a two-sided fireplace with the great room and the large kitchen, which flows past the dining area, boasts marble countertops, custom cabinets, and professional-grade appliances that include two full-column wine coolers and a large center island. An enclosed porch with a fireplace is perfect for enjoying buggy summer nights!
The ground floor’s north wing includes an en-suite guest bedroom, a powder room, a laundry room, and a handy mudroom with access to the three-car garage, while the south wing is comprised of a family room with an attached bathroom that makes it convertible to a bedroom, along with a home office and a primary suite with private terrace, walk-in closet, and bathroom complete with marble shower and soaking tub. Upstairs are four more guest and family bedrooms, three of which are en-suite, along with access to the third-floor rooftop observation deck that offers sweet ocean views.
Outdoors, on 1.2 acres of land, there’s an outdoor lounge area with fireplace (and, oddly, what looks like a firepit too), a huge gunite pool with lounging shelf and raised spa, a pool house, and an outdoor shower behind sliding barn doors.
This is all within easy walking distance of both ocean beaches as well as the adorable restaurants and shops of the nearby village. But again, with all the estate has to offer it’s a wonder anyone would want to leave.
