Take Me to Further Lane!
Swoonworthy Style with Maidstone Club Views
Do you miss summers with the WASPy grandparents you never had, sipping juleps and padding around in loafers?
Well maybe you should come with me on the best house tour EVER in East Hampton’s tony estate section on fabled Further Lane…
I’ve always loved this type of tudor-styled cape-like cottage. When we went to visit, the Spring had given us a little pop of color at the entrance to the gravel drive and motorcourt.
This living room has yet to be “greiged” by the next generation… it’s fresh and clean, but it still has that whimsical Laura Ashley-approved / Mario Buatta-influenced matchy-matchiness of yore that is completely appropriate to the architecture and location.
Check out a rare glimpse into the lounges at the Club and you’ll see that this is a natural extension of classic East Hampton style – you can entertain in classic Lee… but don’t tell Little Edie Beale or she’ll show up avec hat, cat and caftan.
This guest suite replete with grasscloth wallcoverings and rattan furniture will do just fine for me! Drop me off here and I’ll live the simple life for summer, walking into town or to the beach… or bicycling down Further Lane to peek in at Lasata and the other storied homes.
At the edge of the Maidstone Club’s course, this classic Arthur Scheffer-styled house has an unobstructed view of the postcard-pretty Roger Bullard-designed oceanfront clubhouse across the grassy dunes and world-class course.
The house has 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms and could add backdrop of Hollywood glamour to your summer in the Hamptons – it’s available for summer rental, click here for details and more picrtures.
