On a quiet, secluded street in East Hampton's bucolic Springs this waterfront home captures sweeping views over pristine water and undeveloped land to Accabonac Harbor. It's just minutes to East Hampton Village but it feels a world away, with the serenity and simplicity of an earlier time. This home and the one next door, which is also for sale, are owned by members of the same family and are currently used as a family compound, but each can just as well stand on its own. On the first floor are the main living areas, which flow from the eat-in kitchen with marble countertops, stainless steel appliances and a sunny breakfast area with water views, to the dining area and living room which features high ceilings, a painted wood floor and a wood-burning fireplace flanked by walls of rustic, unfinished wood. A porch overlooks the pool and patio area, where there is a magnificent stone fireplace. A covered porch off the kitchen has seating and dining space, and an awning for the sunny side, all for taking in the breathtaking views. Upstairs are three bedrooms, including the master which has a large custom walk-in closet, a modern fireplace and a wall of windows with water views, and two baths, all beautifully finished. In keeping with the unspoiled natural setting, simple yet exquisite materials are used here--stone surfaces, subway tile on bathroom walls, bamboo flooring. Outdoors, the property rolls gently down to the water, where there is a small private dock with a 2 1/2 ft. draw. There is a feeling of intimacy here of peaceful harmony with the setting. It's a place to immerse yourself in the timeless beauty of nature, to escape and unwind. Yet, the Springs General Store is very nearby, the iconic Pollack-Krasner house is around the bend, and you can arrive at the restaurants and shops of the village center, as well as the ocean beaches, in only a matter of minutes. It is no wonder that so many well-known artists flocked to this area of the world for the light, the air, the land. Aren't we lucky to have it this way still? Be the lucky one to enjoy this separate peace of East Hampton history.
