A long weekend that heralds the start of summer living is a good time to think about beach house possibilities. This thoughtfully-designed house at 10 First Walk in the in Davis Park area of Fire Island feels like an airy cabin or a more polished tree house–or a little bit of both (h/t Brick Underground). With three bedrooms and a well-appointed kitchen and dining area, and a location that’s a block from the ocean, it’s got just enough going on to keep things focused on enjoying your summer getaway.

Understandably busy creative couple Elisa Restrepo, co-founder of the luxurious minimalist shoe label Dieppa Restrepo, and restaurateur Dylan Dodd (Karasu, Walter’s, Walter Foods, and Barrio Chino) turned to Brooklyn architects Space Exploration to transform their three-story split-level house in the laid-back (though lately less so) surfing village of Montauk. 6sqft has featured the firm’s work before, and they’ve done another fine job creating an un-fussy and livable space with white and pale woods, earthy textiles and plenty of natural light. The house underwent a full gut remodel, including extensive landscaping, which took a year, but looks completely worth the effort.

Summer serenity this way

The listing for this .28 acre East Hampton property is billed as “the ultimate beach cottage” and we’d have to agree. It’s owned by the English drummer Simon Kirke, best known for playing with the bands Free and Bad Company. There’s the main house, which was recently renovated, as well as a deck, pool and rear cottage currently configured as a music studio. The whole package, located right on Accabonac Harbor, has views of the harbor to the west and of Gardiner’s Bay to the east.

A few years ago, a young couple from the city—she’s a real estate executive and he’s a bond trader— were looking for a beach retreat on Fire Island, the place where he had spent his childhood summers. After an extensive search they settled for a basic wooden cabin that seemed a bit small and uninspiring, but had a stunning oceanfront location difficult to match. After fantasizing about the idea of making radical changes and even tearing it down to build a new bigger house, interior designer Alexandra Angle came to the rescue and saved the 1950s shelter from demolition using splashes of color, Liberty upholsteries, and classic modern pieces by Bertoia, Noguchi, and Kartell.

73 Waterhole Road, East Hampton, hexagonal home, beach bungalow

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.

West Chin Architects, The Sea, Hamptons beach house

Now that we’ve made it through the week of rain and dreary skies, we need a little extra sunshine in our lives, so we’ve decided to take a look at a beach house aptly titled the Sea.

That whole nautical theme for a beach house can be a bit overdone, but we still like our seaside residences to feel as though we’ve been transported from the urban jungle to the sandy shores. That’s why the Sea by West Chin Architects is the perfect getaway; it mixes contemporary décor with an easygoing design esthetic. Located in Long Beach, the Sea was designed to feel imposing, taking full advantage of its beach front location and stunning ocean views. Its other selling point is the abundance of outdoor spaces, including several balconies and terraces and the outdoor dining area with a bar and a lounge area by the pool.
