Grade Architecture + Interior Design Comes to Town

Own a Piece of the Late Francis Fleetwood's Legacy

Own a Piece of the Late Francis Fleetwood's Legacy

The shingle style is by far the overriding architectural vernacular of the Hamptons, and no one executed it better than Francis Fleetwood. With his death in May, the prolific East Hampton–based Fleetwood joins the growing pantheon of notable East End architects, from Grosvenor Atterbury to Norman Jaffe and Charles Gwathmey, who have left their mark on the South Fork.

Newly Listed: Two Modern Beach Homes that Shun Shingle-Style Architecture

Newly Listed: Two Modern Beach Homes that Shun Shingle-Style Architecture

Not looking to build but still want something pretty groovy? Consider 41 Hildreth Avenue in Bridgehampton, a 1975 contemporary designed by Gene Futterman, one of the “big three” Hamptons architects of the 1980s. A boxy structure with a conical section that encloses a spiral staircase, 41 Hildreth has been on and off the market for the past two years and was re-listed last fall after the current owner installed a pool in the front yard.

Furnished Properties that Give New Meaning to the Word Turnkey

Furnished Properties that Give New Meaning to the Word Turnkey

It’s no secret that staging can help sell homes—potential buyers are better able to envision sitting at a Ligne Roset dining table if there’s already one in situ at the open house. But there’s staging, and then there are fully furnished properties that give new meaning to the word “turnkey.”

A Trip Down Memory Lanes

A Trip Down Memory Lanes

Depending on whom you ask, it’s both the best and the worst of times for Hamptons real estate. Yes, there’s certainly everything before us, but we had better be careful to preserve it before, as Dickens might have said, we have nothing before us. Take Coopers Neck Lane in Southampton and Daniels Lane in Sagaponack.

Stable Investment? Bridgehampton's Two Trees Farm Remains on the Market

Stable Investment? Bridgehampton's Two Trees Farm Remains on the Market

Two Trees Farm has been on the market since 2010, but it has had no takers, despite a drop in the asking price from $95 million to $55 million. “The property is too much for most people,” says Walentas, “and no one wants to pay for it.” Now, in order to facilitate a fast sale, he has subdivided Two Trees Farm into two parcels—one being the equestrian facility, a 65-acre spread listed for $25 million, and the other comprising several building lots, one of which, at ten acres, is listed for $4.995 million.

East Hampton Air Traffic (Out of) Control

East Hampton Air Traffic (Out of) Control

In April, the Town of East Hampton passed new legislation restricting some of the estimated 130 daily flights (approximately a third of which are conducted by helicopters) to and from its airport during the summer months, though an all-out ban on weekend helicopter travel from Memorial Day through Labor Day was tossed after the town board’s Airport Finance Sub-Committee could not reach a consensus on how reduced airport traffic would affect East Hampton financially.
