Feet from the hallowed links of the Maidstone Club and less than a mile from Egypt Beach, a private 2-acre compound unfolds at the end of a long gated drive on East Hampton's famed Egypt Lane. The 6 bedroom, 7.5 bath main house, designed by Alexander Gorlin, offers an open layout of gracious main rooms leading to broad verandas and beautifully landscaped grounds with heated gunite pool, and Har-tru tennis court with a 30 foot pillared pergola. A double height paneled foyer opens to palatial living room, formal dining room, and newly renovated chef's kitchen with family room and fireplace. A guest suite with library complete the main floor. Second floor has master suite with sitting area overlooking grounds and three guest bedrooms with baths en suite. Brand new walkout finished lower level has an open recreation room with wet bar, media area, and plenty of space for exercise equipment and games; separate theater; sitting room; and bath. Tucked away from the main house is a charming 1,700 s/f guest house with its own patio and gardens. The guest cottage with full kitchen was originally located on Main Street in the early 1900s. Total interior space: 7500 +/- square feet; built out lower level adds another 1500 +/- square feet. This property offers a rare combination of grandfathered structures, hundred year old trees, and close proximity to shops, restaurants and ocean beaches.
Originally dubbed Maidstone by the Puritans who settled in 1648, East Hampton's Main Street and tree-lined lanes are dotted with preserved homes spanning several eras and styles. Soak up the old world charm with a meal at 1770 House, on the links at the Maidstone Club, or visit Guild Hall. The Pollock Krasner House is a hallmark of the art scene. Don’t forget the beaches- Main, Georgica, Wiborg, Egypt Lane, and Two Mile Hollow.
