This Wainscott home is not a Hamptons mega-mansion, but it’s also not a historic cottage. Built in 1989, the three-bedroom home has been renovated in a contemporary farmhouse style, mixing rustic wood ceiling beams with whitewashed floors and modern furnishings. Add in the outdoor space, and it’s the perfect summer home. The half-acre lot includes a large heated pool, adorable storage shed, and a deck overlooking the magical garden. It’s asking $1,795,000.

In Sag Harbor Village, this $3,250,000 house shares all the history of its neighborhood. It was built in 1792 but updated with a modern take on its 18th-century origins. Throughout you’ll find handcrafted millwork and ironwork, wide-plank oak floors, and shiplap ceiling with exposed wood beams. And it’s just steps to both Sag Harbor Cove and all the shops and restaurants along Main Street.

When we’re talking about oceanfront property in the Hamptons, we’re usually in the four-million ballpark, not four-hundred-thousand. But this gorgeous home is in the slightly off-the-beaten-path location of East Quogue, and it’s a co-op unit in the Round Dune complex. Built in 1965, these four round buildings provide residents with a heated in-ground pool and 24-hour concierge service, not to mention direct beach access. This one-bedroom unit has incredible views of Shinnecock Bay and an easy, breezy style.

Gurney’s Montauk Resort is perhaps the most high-end hotel on the East End, and in 2016, they added a swanky new residential section that has 26 waterfront co-ops, all with access to the 1,000-foot-long stretch of private Hamptons beach. This three-bedroom home just hit the market for $5,350,000, and it also comes with private parking, an owners’ beach cabana, and access to all the amenities at Gurney’s Resort. Plus, on the two terraces, there’s a built-in outdoor kitchen and a hot tub.

The best places to live year-round in the Hamptons

By Devin Gannon, Wed, February 3, 2021

When the coronavirus pandemic struck New York City last March, many New Yorkers decided to temporarily stick it out at short-term rentals in the Hamptons. As the crisis continued and it became clear COVID was not subsiding any time soon, those tentative renters became buyers, aided by low mortgage rates and the ability to work from home. According to a report from Sotheby’s International Realty, sales activity in the Hamptons in the third quarter of last year saw a significant increase year over year at all price points as many sought more space and access to the outdoors. “It took a pandemic for folks to discover that the Hamptons is so much more than a swanky summer-only home destination,” Holly Hodder, an agent managing East End listings for Sotheby’s International Realty, said. “Thousands of people who have settled here for hundred-plus years as full-time residents know that anyone can find an affordable level.”

During her childhood summers, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis traded in Park Avenue for the Hamptons, where her grandfather John Vernou Bouvier Jr. owned two very impressive homes. During this time, one of her favorite pastimes was horseback riding, which would eventually become a lifelong passion. And it was right on the grounds of this 18th-century cottage that she learned to ride. Built in 1745 as the Abraham Baker House, it later served as the clubhouse for the Riding Club of East Hampton, and it’s currently on the market for $1,995,000

You’d assume this gorgeous estate in Water Mill dates back to the 19th-century, but it was actually constructed in 2001 and was inspired by the designs of famed architect Richard Morris Hunt. Known for bringing his French Beaux-Arts style to America in the 1800s, Hunt is best known for the facade of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the pedestal of the Statue of Liberty, and several of the grand homes in Newport. This modern interpretation in the Hamptons is on the market for $11,950,000. It sits on 11.6 acres and has eight bedrooms, a double-height barrel ceiling in the living room, and impeccable French gardens. On the grounds, there’s also a guest house, a huge pool, and a full tennis court.

Living in a windmill is unique on its own, but living in the same windmill that Marilyn Monroe once rented is really something else. Built in 1830, the Amagansett windmill was converted to a residence in the 1950s by Samuel Rubin, creator of the Faberge perfume company. Over the years, it was rented by many famous names, including Kurt Vonnegut, Terrance Stamp, and, in 1957, Marilyn Monroe and Arthur Miller, who were looking to get away from the press in the city. The two-bedroom home sits on nearly five-and-a-half acres and is for sale asking $11,500,000.
