Hexagonal Hamptons Beach Bungalow Has Quirky Checkered Floors and Beamed Ceilings
It’s not all Real Housewives of NYC and mega-mansions out on the Hamptons. In fact, one of the cutest houses on the island (in our humble opinion) is on the market for just $595,000.
Located in East Hampton at 73 Waterhole Road, this beach bungalow stands out on the exterior for its charming hexagonal shape and on the interior for its funky hand-painted checkered floors and rustic cedar beamed ceilings. And if that wasn’t enough, the house sits on a large lot adjacent to a preserve and near a private residents-only beach and marina.
Outside is a new stone walkway and bluestone gravel parking court. The façade is a mix of cedar shingle siding with stucco accents, punctuated by updated windows and doors. To enjoy the views, there’s a wooden wrap-around deck.
Though the house is only 1,020 square feet, it feels much larger thanks to its abundance of windows and open, circular layout. The beachy white walls are the perfect balance to the more bucolic ceiling and floors, as is the light-colored, casual furniture. A wood-burning Adobe-style fireplace anchors the living space.
The renovated kitchen has plenty of cabinet space, stainless steel appliances, slate countertops, and a venetian plaster backsplash.
Overlooking the rear of the property is the peaceful master bedroom and a completely updated bathroom. The second bedroom is currently used as an office. There’s also a full basement that can be used as additional living or sleeping space.
Sitting on 0.43 acres of land, there’s plenty of room to add a pool on the property, but with the beach so close you may not even need it.
