East Hampton, New York, brings to mind images of manicured lawns rimmed with high hedges, screening extravagant mansions. But there’s more to it than that. My recent visit there inspired me to devise this unofficial East Hampton house tour, to showcase, along with the show stoppers, some of the more attainable and, even dare I say, humble abodes. Grant it nothing comes at a humble price out there. Even a shack sitting on a decent parcel of land will run into the millions. Though there’s no denying the natural beauty of the area, surrounded by the ocean and the bay and bursting with flora, it’s well worth it. Here’s a small sampling of homes I could easily imagine myself happily whiling away the summer in.
