9 Cross Highway, East Hampton


With a recent award-winning restoration, a timeless historical East Hampton South cottage dating back to the 1700s carries with it legacies over 2 centuries, including those of Abraham Baker, Frank Lovejoy and Jacqueline Bouvier. Nestled south of the highway, a unique opportunity awaits as this venerable landmark unveils itself to perceptive buyers seeking a distinctive residence on an ideal canvas to create their own private haven with existing approvals granted by East Hampton permitting two residences on the property.

This extraordinary offering affords the possibility of crafting a substantial second dwelling while preserving the historic 1752 landmark cottage as a guest house. Impeccably revived, the barn, once home to Jacqueline Bouvier’s ponies and The Riding Club of East Hampton, stands as a testament to history, now residing less than a mile away from the enchanting Two Mile Hollow Ocean Beach. This 4-bedroom, 4-bathroom treasure has undergone a thorough renovation, where the essence of the original architectural details including the wide planked floors were meticulously preserved, stained, and reinstalled. A bespoke chef’s kitchen boasts a custom fabricated Violetta marble farm sink, a Bertazzoni heritage gas oven and dishwasher, a Subzero refrigerator, and aged brass Ionian taps and a pot filler from deVOL UK. The main level plays host to a library featuring an original fireplace, a dining area, and an additional living/family room, graced by a grand fireplace. Completing this level are two ensuite bedrooms and two inviting outdoor patios. Ascend to the upper level, where the primary bedroom suite takes center stage, accompanied by yet another ensuite bedroom. Authenticity reigns supreme including the Riding Club wood locker doors that were carefully re-appropriated, original refurbished entry doors and exposed beams lending a nostalgic charm. Thoughtful design consideration and honor for the nearly 300 year old history has a fluid conversation with aesthetic modern living. The newly envisioned landscape includes a pristine white pebble driveway, intimate courtyards and a sea of verdant lawn with ample room for a sizable heated Gunite pool and cabana. Enhancements abound, including central air conditioning, a new boiler, new roofing, new cedar siding, new zinc gutters and comprehensive electrical and plumbing upgrades. The allure is further enhanced by proximity to East Hampton and Amagansett villages with their chic boutiques and swanky restaurants. Make your appointments to tour this exceptional offering today.
