Located in the Georgica area of East Hampton, a sought-after enclave that borders gorgeous Georgica Pond, the Cove Hollow Road property spans nearly three acres and was recently listed for $19.5 million. The traditional Hamptons shingle-style home spans 6,500 square feet and has eight bedrooms, seven bathrooms, and three half bathrooms. Though it retains many original details, the home was thoughtfully renovated in 2002 with timeless details and materials.

Through the entry, you’re met with a grand living room to your left, lined with Venetian plaster walls and accented with wood-beamed ceilings. There are high ceilings and ample living space, as well as a cushioned window seat and a large fireplace. The room connects via elegant French doors to a screened-in porch on one side and a patio on the other, so you’re never too far from the outdoors on temperate days. The main level also includes an intimate family room with another fireplace and a dining room overlooking the backyard.
The kitchen is something out of a magazine and one of the most significant additions to the home since its 2002 renovation. Baby blue-hued custom cabinetry, state-of-the-art Gaggenau and Sub-Zero appliances, a large center island, and direct access to the outdoor patio are just a few of its features. No room was an afterthought— even the mudroom off the kitchen features custom Spanish tile.
Upstairs, the primary suite takes up nearly an entire wing of the second floor. The primary bedroom has a fireplace, and connects to a spacious balcony, and also leads to a spa-like bathroom with dual sinks, a steam shower, and a large walk-in closet. The second floor includes four additional bedrooms, an office space, and an entertainment room. Each room has ample closet space and en-suite bedrooms.
As this is the Hamptons, the outdoor area is designed for entertaining; there’s a massive heated 50-foot-long gunite pool and spa; stone patios; English-style gardens to meander through; and ample lawn space. For extended family or out-of-town guests, there’s also a 1,194-square-foot pool house with a kitchen, bar, bedroom, bathroom, and laundry facilities. It even includes a living and entertaining space with a fireplace, outdoor shower, and changing room. Because this is the Hamptons, this plump parcel of land also features a full-size tennis court and a detached three-car garage.
This historic East Hampton home is just minutes from downtown shopping, restaurants, and entertainment and offers close proximity to the beach and other outdoor pursuits. East Hampton is known for its luxury homes and design-savvy residents.
The property is listed by Martha Gunderson and Paul Brennan, both of Douglas Elliman.
