New to Market Springs Cottage 450K

IMG_1516

THIS BARN-RED COTTAGE, on a quiet 1/2 acre off upper Springs Fireplace Road, really makes me think sellers here in East Hampton are getting reasonable. Reasonable for East Hampton, anyway. Reasonable relative to what such a house would have cost three years ago.

Sweet and simple, with 3 bedrooms, two baths, and a fireplace, the 40-year-old board-and-batten house looks immaculately turn-key. It’s on a flat, mostly cleared lot, but surrounded by enough tall trees that in summer you’d be unaware of your neighbors. The landscaping is a bit barren, but that’s a fun challenge for some of us. There’s plenty of room for a pool.

Altogether worth checking out, IMO, if you’re in the market for a second (or first) home under half a mil.

    I like it best I can tell. What the story on the skylight? I hate when mud next to the foundation splashes up on the wall. Hard to get that stuff off.

    Nothing a few shrubs wouldn’t take care of.
