It’s all about the beach life at this contemporary home on a private street in the Amagansett dunes. This four-bedroom 1,800-square foot hideaway is the ultimate casual seaside hangout in the famed neighborhood tucked in between the ocean and Bluff Road.
“It’s a fabulous little neighborhood and what you get here is private beach and ocean access,” says Randi Ball, the Corcoran listing agent for 25 Treasure Island Drive. “It’s always had an almost cult following because of privacy, protection and the community.”
Built in 1974, the owners kept a head-to-toe renovation in 2021 simple, choosing to maximize the light coming through multiple windows and sliding glass doors, and keep the communal spaces casual with easy access to the outdoors.
That is not to say the house isn’t without its amenities, the foremost being more than 600 square feet over four decks that offer different spaces for enjoying dining, sunning or relaxing. Each deck is equipped with electricity and a watering hose so green thumbs can garden on every level. The rooftop deck offers unobstructed views and a propane-powered fire pit.
“The roof top is really private, as it overlooks a large reserve—it’s a big bonus,” Ball says.
Nine-foot-high ceilings on the first floor help contribute to the feeling of spaciousness, where the main feature is the contemporary wood-burning fireplace anchoring the living room—part of the open plan that includes the dining and kitchen areas.
A breakfast bar separates the prep and eating areas. The kitchen is simple with a terracotta tiled floor, ample work space and new appliances that include a Bosch range and dishwasher, and LG refrigerator.
The adjacent dining area is served by two sets of sliding glass doors onto the deck—ideal for in and out entertaining.
Away from the common areas and down a hallway, two bedrooms overlook the yards. The first primary bedroom has a full ensuite bathroom and the other guest room has a half bath. A separate hallway closet houses the LG washer/dryer suite.
The first and second floors are adjoined by a custom floating staircase, fabricated of natural wood and steel. The second-floor bedroom has a half bath and its own deck. On the third floor, the second primary bedroom features a wall of closets, an ensuite bathroom with radiant-heat floors and sliding doors opening to a private deck with a seating area. Small transoms on either side allow additional light in.
All the bathrooms have been renovated with contemporary fixtures; those with showers have newly constructed step-in showers with glass doors.
Outdoors, the landscaping is “very naturalistic in keeping with the surroundings and integrated into the environment,” says Ball. Beach grasses, mature trees and a back yard embedded with flagstone and fully screened with hedges complete the homey feel to the property, which is .11 acres.
Other outdoor amenities include a shower, wraparound deck and a cedar privacy fence, and a storage closet. There’s parking for two cars.
In keeping with the causal character of this unique corner of this island, this family-friendly house, says Ball, “is all about bathing suits and flip flops.”
“What attracts people to the area is that is still has an old-fashioned beachy feel … it’s for people who want to have a laid back, wonderful beach experience.”
The dunes may be hidden in plain sight, but the neighborhood offers access to plenty of recreation and leisure. The house is a four-minute drive to Indian Wells and Amagansett beaches, a 15-minute walk to Atlantic Avenue Beach and a three-minute drive to the popular Amagansett Farmer’s Market at 367 Main St. Farther afield—just three miles to the east toward Montauk— is the Napeague State Park. Three and half miles to the north by way of South Fork Country Club is Dennistown Bell Park on Napeague Bay.
