Experience ultimate relaxation during a Thursday through Sunday stay for 6 people at a private beach house in the Hamptons in the historic hamlet of Amagansett.

The home features a Master bedroom, two children’s rooms, a guest room, and a studio.

Seen from Cranberry Hole Road, it rears up from the dunescape like a boxy brown whale with peaked flippers. On closer inspection, the large, honey-colored wood box turns out to be part of an idiosyncratic modern house that takes advantage of its site on the edge of a nature preserve in Amagansett.

Built in 2000, the structure was an early swimmer in the wave of construction that is proceeding between the Gardiner‘s Bay shoreline and the Napeague State Park, which runs from behind this house and the other relatively new ones to the ocean. It was built for Christian Elvis Dinh, a fashion photographer, and was intended to serve as a part-time photo studio as well as a residence.

The studio section, now mostly used as a living room, is the largest part of the house, 1,325 square feet and two stories high. Outside, at its second-floor level, the exterior wooden cladding is broken only by subtle horizontal grooves. On the ground level, tall windows provide full views of the surrounding dunes and of a deck and pool area, but sliding barn doors on tracks can be rolled over the panes, darkening the room for controlled, artificial studio lighting.

  • Experience occurs from Jun 01, 2018 to Aug 31, 2018.
  • Experience blackout dates: Holiday weekends. Additional blackout periods may apply.
