HAMPTONS RESIDENTIAL TRADITIONAL
A legendary home located steps from the ocean in East Hampton, NY. Former home of "Big" Edith and "Little" Edie Beale.
The original shingle-style home was designed by Arts and Crafts architect Jospeh Greenleaf Thorpe in 1897. A Princeton graduate, Thorpe designed many of thesummer cottages in East Hampton during the late 19th Century. The home was renovated in approx. 1978 and retains many of the original details and furnishings that came with the house at the time, including steamer trunks marked with the initials PB and many original wicker pieces and antiques that filled the house when the Beale's resided. There are charming gardens and a thatched hut referred to as the Fairy House along with the tombstone for beloved Spot Beale, a cherished dog. Beautiful grounds, pool, tennis court, traditional architecture with interiors that feel unfussy and filled with books and many original pieces. The outdoor pergola retains the original cement walls.
