The house was originally on Main Street and later moved by its 19th-century owners, John and Phoebe Hunting. The renowned architect Joseph Greenleaf Thorp assisted in moving the house to the Hither Lane address in 1926.

The Gilded Age architect is well known for his work on other East Hampton estates, including the iconic Grey Gardens, which was recently restored by fashion entrepreneur Liz Lange; the landmark Frederick G. Potter House, which is currently on the market for $25 million; and Calvin Klein’s former mansion on Georgica Pond, which sold for a historic $85 million in 2021.

In addition to its architectural pedigree, the home was recently expanded to include 4,000 square feet of living space, four bedrooms, and 3.5 bathrooms. Abundant original details remain, including old-growth hardwood floors and multiple fireplaces.

The 1.8-acre lot also comes with a detached, two-car garage, a potting shed, and an expansive heated pool. Best of all, it’s just a mile from several popular seaside attractions.

The home is one of only 23 properties in East Hampton and has the iconic, timber-frame construction so typical of early buildings on Long Island. Because of this, the main building is protected and any changes to it will be regulated. Given the historic designation, the lot also comes with the flexibility to construct additional buildings like a second home or guesthouse.
