Guests of this shingle-style residence enjoy both privacy and proximity to activity, thanks to the home’s location in a secluded section of the Hamptons that is only a few miles from Southampton and East Hampton. The owner recently renovated the interior and lavished considerable attention on important details, including electronic conveniences such as a Honeywell Total Connect system with remote temperature, alarm, and video monitoring that can be controlled by phone or iPad. The decor is stylish and comfortable. Common areas include formal and informal living and dining areas and a gourmet kitchen with a separate pantry. All five of the bedrooms have en suite bathrooms. Outdoors, the property presents a number of possibilities for entertaining; the inviting pool and a barbecue space with several seating areas—including a poolside pergola for alfresco dining—are sure to be well used during the summer months. The 6,000-square-foot home sits on 1.7 wooded acres (fenced, to keep deer away from the manicured grounds) in the gated West Banks community, which offers a private dock, beach, and tennis courts a short walk away. 

Rates: $18,000 to $27,000 weekly. Contact: Beautiful Places, 800.495.9961, www.beautiful-places.com
