Listed for $2.8 million, this East Hampton farmhouse, which was moved to its current location nearly two decades ago, includes an outdoor kitchen island designed for the best barbecue in town.
The four-bedroom, five-bathroom residence on its 0.64-acre lot was moved in 1996 to its current location in Dune Alpin by owner Ann Tintle Carmo.
The outdoor kitchen — which includes a charcoal barbecue, sink, refrigerator and bar stool seating for five — was added for her husband, Vinicius, to prepare authentic, slow-cooked Brazilian barbecue.
“It was a birthday present for him,” she says.
The unique cooking space is one of many improvements made to the home after being sold by East Hampton Village at auction and moved from its original location, which is now part of Herrick Park across from East Hampton Middle School.
The kitchen and bathrooms were renovated, and the entire home received new plumbing and wiring. Later, she replaced all of the windows except for lead-glass windows on the wraparound front porch.
They also added an in-ground pool with rock walls terracing the area, as well as an outdoor dining space. The property includes wisteria, a weeping beech tree, cherry tree, hydrangeas and other perennials. A few years ago, 1,500 daffodils were planted.
“In the spring, it’s quite beautiful between the front and backyards,” Ann says.
Inside, a gourmet kitchen features Viking appliances and a kitchen island, with storage available in an adjacent pantry. The first floor also features a master suite.
The home is listed with Ed Brody of Halstead Property.
