A HOME FROM A BYGONE ERA

The house known as Lasata or “place of peace” evokes the Hamptons of another era. Built in 1917, this six-bedroom, 5.5-bath East Hampton estate was the summer home to the Bouvier family (whose most famous member is Jackie O) through the 1920s and has had only a handful of owners since then. It’s on the market for $25 million.

Set back on 6.4 manicured acres, the 8,500 SF home was built for its day with a large formal dining room and living room, a family room with fireplace and a separate servants’ wing. The kitchen was designed as a cook’s kitchen with a butler’s pantry. Out back is a pool with pool house. “This isn’t a modern house,” says Joseph Kazickas of Brown Harris Stevens. “But it’s comfortable and would be great for someone with a growing family or the person who wants quality and has experience in renovation work.”

A HOUSE WITH OPTIONS

Near the village of East Hampton, this $3.95 million, 5,000 SF home is a study in flexibility. Two master bedroom suites, each with a fireplace, are perfect for accommodating two generations of a family or guests. There are three other ensuite bedrooms, one with a deck overlooking the grounds. A bedroom in the finished basement has its own bath and a separate entrance, ideal for a grown son or daughter, or even an office says listing broker Diane Saatchi of Corcoran Group. The light-filled basement is above ground with French doors leading to a private patio.

On the main floor: a formal living room and study, both with fireplaces; a formal dining room and a state-of-the-art kitchen with two dishwashers. A new renovation added two laundry rooms—one in the basement and one on the second floor—for added convenience. A heated pool’s blue-stone terracing complements the stone walkways and mature trees.

UPSCALE FAMILY LIVING

This Peter Cook designed home on Jobs Lane in Bridgehampton makes family life a snap. With five bedrooms—the master has French doors leading to a lovely patio—located in different wings of the house, and five baths you might actually enjoy having the in-laws for a long weekend.

“It’s a grand house, but not a McMansion,” says Cynthia Barrett of Prudential Douglas Elliman. “This is really a family-friendly home.” Top cabinetry and appliances (Viking stove, SubZero refrigerator) outfit the gourmet kitchen. Less high-tech, but equally charming, is the kitchen’s fireplace—one of four in this home. Also on the main floor are a formal dining/living room and study. Above the garage is a billiard room with patio overlooking the landscaped grounds.

A glass arboretum, filled with a variety of plants and flowers, overlooks the 50-foot pool, a freshwater pond and Mecox Bay. Listed for $5.5 million, it’s close to town and a quick walk to the beach.

“Because the Hamptons are generally second-home markets, sellers don’t really have to sell if they can’t get their price,” says John Gicking, a broker with the East Hampton office of Sotheby’s International Realty. “However we’re finding that if the house is in a good location, and is fairly priced, there are going to be offers.”
