Twin Cottages Near Bay 449K



I’m not saying these identical twin cuties — unwinterized 1BR cottages in the Maidstone Park area of Springs (East Hampton), N.Y. — are a steal or anything. The asking price for both, newly reduced, is 449K.

But there’s something tantalizing about them and their possibilities.


They’re on one-third of an acre, a five-minute walk to magnificent Maidstone Beach, a long, never-crowded white sand beach on Gardiner’s Bay, and great kayaking/paddleboarding spots.

They’re barely 400 square feet apiece. They sit on cinderblocks and have no fireplaces. But they’re well-maintained and tastefully appointed, with decent baths and kitchens. A pair of friends could share the property, or it could be a modest family compound.

Patios and landscaping would go a long way. They’ve been on the market for a while (I first saw them last winter, when the asking price was over half a million). You know what that means: negotiable!

    We’ve always loved the idea of a compound where everybody can get a bit of space. To a southern boy “winterizing” just sounds awful thing to have to do. Makes me shiver just thinking about it.

Got something to say? Please say it!
