A restored East Hampton Village estate that dates back to 1906, on one of the highest elevations in Georgica, has hit the market, seeking $19.5 million.
At 253 Cove Hollow Road, the nearly 3-acre property with a gated entry and long circular driveway hosts a 6,481-square-foot main house with seven bedrooms, six full bathrooms and two half-baths. The property also boasts a 1,200-square-foot guest house, with another en suite bedroom, a kitchen, a bar, a washer/dryer and a living and entertaining space with a fireplace, plus an outdoor shower and changing room, and a detached three-car garage, with a second-floor recreation and fitness area and a half bath.
The main house includes preserved intricate details from the original 1906 home and the addition of fine details such as Venetian plaster in the main living hall and Spanish tile in the mudroom.
The entryway leads to a formal dining room with a fireplace, that transitions to a bar, a large pantry with dual Sub-Zero wine coolers, and the brand-new kitchen, which the Douglas Elliman listing calls the “heart of the home,” with top-of-the-line Gaggenau appliances, a center island and a coffee bar. The kitchen opens to a pergola-covered patio with a built-in outdoor grill.
A living room has a wood-burning fireplace and walls of French doors, and a family room has another fireplace. A mudroom, laundry, and rear staircase round out the first level.
The primary bedroom suite with a spacious dressing room with built-in closets, a bath with steam shower and dual sinks, and a large fireplace is upstairs. “The suite opens to a mahogany terrace overlooking both the front and back yards,” the listing states.
Four guest bedrooms — two en suite and two with a shared bathroom — plus an office, an entertainment room, and ample closets complete the second and third floors.
In addition to a 20-foot-by-50-foot gunite pool, the property has a tennis court and English gardens.
Paul Brennan and Martha Gundersen of Douglas Elliman have the exclusive listing.
