Nestled south of the highway in the prestigious East Hampton area, a timeless historical cottage dating back to the 1700s stands as a testament to over two centuries of legacies. From Abraham Baker to Frank Lovejoy and Jacqueline Bouvier, this remarkable property has played host to some of history's most notable figures. Now, this venerable landmark opens its doors to perceptive buyers in search of a unique opportunity to craft their own private haven.

For those seeking a distinctive residence with a touch of history, this property offers an unparalleled opportunity. With existing approvals granted by East Hampton, the property permits the construction of two residences, allowing for the creation of a substantial second dwelling while preserving the historic 1752 landmark cottage as a guest house. The very barn that once housed Jacqueline Bouvier's ponies and The Riding Club of East Hampton has been meticulously revived, standing as a living testament to history.

The cottage, boasting 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms, has undergone a meticulous restoration process that pays homage to its original architectural details. Wide-planked floors, original fireplaces, and carefully re-appropriated Riding Club wood locker doors evoke a sense of nostalgia and charm. The essence of the past has been lovingly preserved, with exposed beams and refurbished entry doors adding to the authenticity of the space.
