SEE THIS HOUSE: A $16.9 MILLION DOLLAR SUMMER HOUSE IN EAST HAMPTON!

foyer with herringbone wood floors, french doors, double height entry and a large pendant light

So my obsession with the Hamptons continues.  I want a house in the Hamptons.  I would be fine with any house in the Hamptons but a very large one would be nice.  If I can't have a house in the Hamtpons...best of friend AM better get one and I would just come visit...and not to put any pressure at all on her...this large East Hamptons house would be perfect!

Here it is...a $16.9 million dollar listing with 11,600 square feet of home. Shingle style home in East Hampton (Georgica Pond). The estate includes 8 bedrooms, 8.5 baths, 3.6 acres, pool, pool house, antique oak floors, vaulted living room ceilings.   Designed by architect Peter Cook,

This million dollar listing is from Sotheby's International Realty.

I love the herringbone hardwood floors in the foyer and the antique rustic wood floors throughout!  Take a look.

This chef's kitchen with stainless appliances, white cabinets and large island would work just fine for me. (above)

So what do you think of this little house?  Like or dislike?  If someone offered it to you would you take it or leave it?  Do tell.  I personally would take it in a heartbeat.  You?

Happy Tuesday!

  1. Of course I would take it. I love that the furnishings are amazing but not stuffy with a $16.9 million attitude.

    Great property!

  2. Nope, not me! I use to live in Sag Harbor (while living in the city) and if you had that much money to spend, you would NOT buy this house. There are much nicer homes. I don't like the ceilings. The floors are gorgeous. The pool is magnificent. There are zillions of beautiful homes there.

  3. Dislike..sorry. Not for $17 million. If I were going for that look and pricetag, the homes of Aerin Lauder or Tory Burch be at the top of my list. Otherwise, give me a cozy 2500 sq foot bungalo in the dunes for 1/3 the price..and decorated by Amanda Nisbet! :-)

    Love keeping up with your posts,etc..

  4. Nice kitchen, and floors, spacious dining room. I like the wide staircase in the entry. Other than that, it looks like a rather ordinary home, just on steroids. I do not like the "palladiian" windows that have become a staple in new construction. They are hard to dress well, and they are not appropriate for most houses. I guess they can justify the price because it is on Georgica Pond.

  5. First of all, I love your taste in real estate and I could do so much with this space. It's floors are incredible and I love the space, but have to pass on most of the decor. Very blah. I'd take the house if it were offered to me and I'd do my magical twist on it.

  6. I like the home style but it needs more pizzazz in the decorating. All of the walls are stark white and not much exciting or different in the furnishings.

  7. Personally I love many aspects of it. It reminds me of a house i had wanted to build and now Im wishing I could have it. Decor could be upped a little for more Hamptons styling but that would be fun too. Thanks for the post. Might try to mention your post on my blog too. Fiona

  8. I'd take the pool. Nothing else is that appealing.

  9. Very pretty but awfully big price tag. Too many things I would want to change in it to justify that kind of money but overall a really pretty home.

  10. I love the architecture of this house. I also am blown away by the kitchen. The furnishings look like the folks need an Interior Designer! I know one I could recommend! :)
