The Springs peninsula reaches northward from Amagansett towards Gardiner’s Island, an especially lovely part of the Hamptons. Beyond here, Long Island terminates at Montauk.
This is where noted actress Kim Cattrall bought a waterfront house in 1998, just as her hit HBO series, Sex and the City, was taking off. Today, the charming beach house is on the market for $3,250,000.
Tucked behind a gate, the professionally landscaped and fenced property spans a generous 4/10 of an acre, stretching from Gerard Dive to Gardiner’s Bay. It offers seclusion, sophistication, and the laid back waterfront lifestyle that this unique Springs peninsula has offered for generations. Plenty of grassy areas, mahogany decks and bluestone walkways frame the main house and spacious studio.
The two-bedroom home has one full bath and two half baths. There is also a loft for additional sleep space. With spaces designed by celebrity interior designer Tony Ingrao, the 1,300 square foot interior looks and feels spacious. Inside the main house is an L-shaped, open living/dining area with a wood burning fireplace. An oversized wall of windows faces the water, providing magnificent views towards three exposures: across the water to Gardiner’s Island, northwest towards Shelter Island and southeast towards Montauk (the End).
The living room doubles as a Hollywood-style screening room with a 59 X 80-inch motorized screen which descends from a recess in the ceiling on command, complimented by a professional projector. The detached studio is heated and cooled, with a half bath of its own. There is also a large, newly installed outdoor shower.
The waterside hot tub is screened where needed, without sacrificing the reason to be here: the water views. To the rear is more decking, a good-sized grassy lawn, a waterside firepit and stone pavers that meander down to Gardiner’s Bay, where the water beckons swimmers, paddlers and sailors.
This is a Hamptons iconic offering: a waterfront house that has been thoughtfully imagined and maintained, and which is ready for its next owner.
