Here’s an opportunity to live in the midst of horse country without having to muck out the barn. Indeed, just hollering distance from the famous Hampton Classic Horse Show, this home offers a foothold in Bridgehampton’s equestrian lifestyle at an attractive entry point, says Yorgos Tsibiridis, the Compass listing agent representing the property.
“This is in the heart of horse country—it has views of the Hampton Classic, horse farms, open horse-farm land,” he says. The Northern Ridge and Campbell stables are nearby, and the house is three miles from the Sagg Main and Gibson beaches, offering plenty of opportunities for water sports when not playing polo.
The compact two-story home packs in a lot of other features, too: a double-height ceiling, casement windows, built-in shelves, a woodburning fireplace and rustic finishes such as reclaimed wood.
Sitting on three-quarters of an acre, the house was built in the 1990s, and subsequent renovations—the latest in 2019—expanded the home, adding ensuite bedrooms and a basement that’s ready for finishing touches.
Most of the main floor is devoted to the large open plan combining kitchen, dining area and living room. At its center is a slate woodburning fireplace, flanked by oversize casement windows overlooking the pool, entertainment area, and back yard. A double-height ceiling here maximizes the light pouring in through the stacked windows.
The dining area adjacent to the kitchen enjoys an abundance of natural light from the corner window formation, one of which is a set of French doors, with generously sized side lights leading to an L-shaped desk with a broad sweep of steps to the pool.
The window-lined kitchen features Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances (the cooktop is induction), black soapstone counters, custom cabinetry and a breakfast bar that seats four. The open shelves and internal doors are made from locally reclaimed wood, which complement the oak floors throughout the house.
Also on the main floor are two guest bedrooms, 250 and 300 square feet, the larger of which is ensuite. A full bathroom across the hallway from the other bedroom offers common access.
On the second floor, the 450-square-foot primary bedroom includes a walk-in closet and an en-suite bathroom featuring a soaking tub by Waterworks. French doors lead to a balcony overlooking the back yard—large enough for a bistro table or lounge chair. The 300-square-foot guest bedroom is ensuite, and the landing, with a floor-to ceiling window, is currently set up as a home office.
The finished part of the basement includes custom wine racks, a media/home theater room, two storage areas and a small gym. The unfinished portion has new septic lines to accommodate a fifth bedroom and bathroom.
The grounds are planted with privacy hedges and include a wrap-around deck at the pool area, 20 x 40 heated pool and a garden shed. The driveway can accommodate six cars, and Tsibiridis says the plot, which continues to Mitchell Lane, is large enough to build a garage accessed via that road.
Snake Hollow Road is an enclave unto itself—”a small street with not more than 20 houses,” says Tsibiridis—yet close to Bridgehampton amenities. “You can walk to the village and the train station, but you don’t hear the trains,” says the agent.
237 Snake Hollow Road lists for $3,750,000 and the details can be seen here.
