In the late 1930s Robert Lion Gardiner, one of East Hampton’s most prominent residents, commissioned the renowned architectural firm Wyeth and?King to create a great stone mansion for his wondrous 5.5 acres on Long Island. Today, after a fastidious five-year restoration, the two-story 10,000-square-foot New York masterpiece, hidden regally behind high hedges, is a Hamptons treasure. A gated entry, magnificent main salon with handsome fireplace, grand dining room, and ?relit library are among the most noteworthy settings. Its commercial kitchen features a charming breakfast area and butler’s pantry. The generous firelit master suite is one of the classic highlights of the house. But even past the elevator, in the three guest suites and the five-bedroom staff or guest wing, the irresistible 1930s spirit continues to resonate. To climax the traditional elegance of the legendary estate, graceful parklike gardens crowned by a regal 60-foot heated swimming pool and heartwarming two-bedroom carriage house lend romance to an enchanting kingdom where all who come enjoy inimitable Hamptons hospitality.
