Pollock-Inspired Cottage

IF EVER THERE WAS ANY QUESTION that Springs, N.Y., in the East Hampton ZIP code, was an arty neighborhood, take a look at this cottage in the Maidstone Park section. This place is historically a problem for its neighbors. At one point, it was condemned, with major trash in the yard and police tape around it.

Now, channeling Jackson Pollock, the area’s most famous resident, the homeowner has taken an abstract expressionist approach to exterior decor, and made it a community endeavor.

Not what springs to mind when one thinks of the Hamptons, is it?

    Now that’s the Hamptons house I covet.

  2. That’s really something! I wonder if the neighbors have thrown paint on it yet?
