This cedar-shingled Cape Cod in East Hampton, listed for $725,000, was built to look vintage on the outside but feel timeless inside.
Owners of the three-bedroom, two-bath house on a quarter-acre, which was built in 1988, have left their own mark.
“The latest owner . . . cleaned it up, saved what was worth saving and turned it into this cute, charming house that looks very old on the outside but, on the inside, still very timeless,” says listing agent William Stoecker, of Town & Country Real Estate.
Wide-plank wood floors are found throughout the home. Recent updates include a professional-grade country kitchen with brick floors, marble countertops, refinished cabinetry and a stainless steel Wolf range.
The living room contains a stone hearth fireplace, and a first-floor master bedroom suite boasts antique floors, which are found throughout the home. Upstairs, there are two guest bedrooms with vaulted ceilings and a full bath. There are views of the kitchen, dining room and living room from a second-floor opening.
The owner, a buyer for a local landscaping company, has filled the grounds with “tremendous” gardens that grow hedge plants and grasses in season, Stoecker says. The gardens include a stone patio.
