Property Description

Impeccably restored and renovated to perfection, this 1880s designer farmhouse on coveted Toilsome Lane is a dream come true. Masterminded by renowned local architect Amado Ortiz, the 5 bedroom main house plus guest cottage / artist studio exude a chic, comfortable and whimsically modern sensibility while maintaining the home's original integrity. Enter through the front covered porch to a large inviting living room - the focal point being a gorgeous lacquered wall of book shelves, while a white marble mantelpiece above the wood burning fireplace anchors the room. A wall of windows floods the room in natural light leading you to an office/study, with paned windows looking out onto the mature specimen trees and privet encompassing the property. Continuing out of the living room, past a comfortable sitting area is a separate entrance from the outside into a mudroom with a sink, laundry chute and ample storage. The heart of the home is the generously sized open kitchen and dining area, complete with a wood burning fireplace. No detail has been overlooked in this gourmet chef's kitchen. The oversized island is made of the finest marine treated wood, and the perimeter countertops of white Carrera marble. All appliances are top of the line by Wolf, Sub-zero, and Miele, and the white wood cabinetry is custom made by local craftsmen. The kitchen and dining area are surrounded with windows and sliding french doors allowing views to the meticulously landscaped backyard and outside living area of the main house - with a covered porch, outdoor gas fireplace, electric solar shades and television. Back inside the home, proceeding upstairs, you will find 4 bedrooms. The first guest bedroom is Ensuite, complete with its own loft space with TV and reading nook. The next two guest bedrooms share a full bathroom, and continuing down the hallway there is a laundry room, and further down, a door to separate the very private Primary bedroom suite/wing. The Primary bath is generously sized with Waterworks furnishings, a soaking tub and steam shower. The Primary bedroom has a stunning white marble gas fireplace, as well as a very large walk in custom built dressing room. A windowed door with stained glass above, leads out to an oversized deck with two lounge chairs overlooking the sparking saltwater Gunite pool and guest cottage. The lower level of the home is completely outfitted with a family room, and a large playroom with pool table, leading to another sitting area. There is a guest bedroom and full bath as well as secondary laundry room. The outdoor living spaces have been developed with equal care, as an outdoor kitchen with Wolf BBQ grill, built in "Big Green Egg Grill", and refrigerator, border a trellis covered farmhouse table for 10 with comfortable lounge seating around. Inside the one bedroom guest cottage is a large living area with a television, as well as an additional sleeping loft for overflow guests. The double french sliding doors let in natural light and allow the beautiful vista of the pool and backyard. Attached to the guest cottage is a Waterworks outdoor shower. The cottage is winterized with radiant heat in the floor for chilly Hamptons nights. This very special home was originally part of the Grimshaw plat of East Hampton Village, and entitles the Owner to guaranteed village beach parking stickers free of charge. It has a Crestron home automation system throughout which controls music (multi zone), lights, locks, temperature, and security - all remotely. The Saltwater swimming pool has a retractable cover, and the heater can be controlled remotely with an app from your phone, so that you can heat it on your way driving out from the city. There is radiant heat flooring throughout the home - below grade level, as well as in the kitchen and bathrooms upstairs. This true four-season, highly livable home was featured in Cottages & Gardens in the summer of 2019.**Renovation: Gut renovated down to the studs in 2008. 2015 renovated upstairs bedrooms, added outdoor porches, fireplace, new gunite pool, full guest cottage renovation with legal kitchenette and full bath .Brand new sanitary system and 3 tankless water heaters in 2019.
