This Colonial, listed for $8.75 million, is not only a stone’s throw from East Hampton’s Main Beach, it’s also made of stone.
“It’s probably one of the only stone houses in East Hampton,” says co-listing agent James Petrie of Compass.
“There’s a handful,” adds co-listing agent Ed Petrie. “For every stone house there are 500 wooden houses or even more.”
The 1928 home, which is set atop a small hill on the 1.5-acre property, combines mansard style and Ludowici roofing. It offers seven bedrooms, 5 1⁄2 bathrooms, a formal dining room and an eat-in kitchen. Dark stained hardwood floors are throughout the 6,000-square-foot house.
The master bedroom features one of the home’s four fireplaces. A guest bedroom on the second level includes a balcony that overlooks the backyard, which includes a covered patio and in-ground pool. The property is just a half-mile from Main Beach. Taxes are $27,000.
“The house is like a little landmark for people who go to Main Beach,” Ed Petrie says. “Everyone goes by it. The simple fact of it being stone really sets it apart from everything else.”
