86 Georgica Road, East Hampton, NY 11937  

This property, near the ocean, belongs to a world famous writer, whose homes have appeared in Architectural Digest, and is decorated by Mica Ertegun. The garden was designed by the late James Van Sweden, the most eminent of American landscape designers. The garden affords complete privacy with its many irreplaceable specimen trees and swaths of grasses and flowers that has set a precedent for a lavish yet natural garden. This lush, unique and relatively low maintenance garden features a 32' round heated pool that blends into the landscape like a mysterious pond. Van Sweden's garden has been the star of two Guild Hall tours and the winner of several awards. The vintage house is fully centrally air-conditioned and heated and has a large hidden generator, yet it has all the charm of the original East Hampton house. There are four fireplaces (one now enclosed). This home is located in the heart of the estate section of East Hampton atop a hill, just two and a half blocks from Main Beach, which in 2013 was named as the Best Beach in America. The house contains a huge master suite with bay windows, closets galore, and a blue marble bathroom with a water jet Jacuzzi tub. There are four guest rooms and three other full bathrooms. Downstairs partitions have been removed to create a luxurious French-doored space with the stairway removed and replaced with an open stanchion stair. The kitchen, once three rooms, has a round table that seats ten easily. It has a professional Garland stove, grill and ovens, a Sub-Zero refrigerator, marble counter tops, and again the bay windows and a mudroom with two more refrigerators and freezers off the kitchen. There is a pre-existing two bedroom cottage over the detached two-car garage. It is fully heated and air-conditioned, with full bath and has it's own generator. The property is completed with a pool house with outside sliding doors concealing a bar with refrigerator and icemaker, a bathroom and changing room, and a heated outdoor rain
