As you pass through the security gates, it is as if you are entering a secret garden. Nearly two acres laden with some of the most spectacular trees on the East End of Southampton envelop you in a poolside garden of privileged serenity. Beech House, the Shingle Style cottage, capitalizes on the mood fully, inviting the outdoor light and lushness in through a vast array of French doors and windows. Five firesides lend charm in settings that flow from the congenial main rooms to a gourmet kitchen, library, media room, and six bedrooms. Doors open to garden terraces, one with a fireplace, and to a poolhouse with a soaking tub and another fireplace. A tennis court beckons beyond.
