THE ESCAPE

Spectacular 4.5 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom modern ocean front retreat, nominated as a World Architecture 2013 House of the Year, THE WATCHTOWER sets the standard for the modern beach getaway. With an open plan living and dining room with a wall of windows facing the sea on the ground level connected to the kitchen [which is expertly equipped ready to entertain friends or family] leading to a cloakroom, study and playroom at the back. Two guest bedrooms and bathrooms, with the master bedroom with en suite are all on the second floor with a wonderful sea views. For the children or young adults there is a bunk room sleeping 4 with views across the bay. 

THE WATCHTOWER comes complete with luxury bedlinen, bath and beach towels, home theatre, wireless internet, and Sonos music system throughout. There are also ocean kayaks, beach chairs and umbrellas to enjoy the water, sun and sand at this dune escape. East Quogue is a town located on the far end of Long Island. THE WATCHTOWER is the perfect escape for any family wanting to leave behind the hustle and bustle for a sprawling holiday home or for a group of friends to gather to relax and kick back.

Outside
There are three decks - a dining deck with large grill on the ground floor, a mezzanine deck off bedrooms with solar oculus and a full floor roof deck with 360 degree ocean views with an outdoor fireplace, lounge seating and dining area and to top it all a 7 person hot tub … what more do you need!

Location
Settled in the mid-17th century, Quogue [where the property is located] is part of the greater Westhampton area and is one of the oldest communities on Long Island. Today, thanks to the stately Victorians nestled along its tree lined streets and the contemporary mansions along the ocean on Dune Road, Quogue is one of the most desirable residential areas in the Hamptons and offers a relaxed and friendly experience for visitors. Just to the east is East Quogue, which was settled in 1686 and was originally known as Fourth Neck. With acres of farmland and pine forests, a beautiful bay, and ocean beaches, it is enlivened by the world class Main Street dining and the seasonal influx of visitors.

East Quogue is a hamlet [an unincorporated area] and located in Suffolk County, Long Island, New York. It is within the town of Southampton. East Quogue is one of the smallest residential areas in the well known “Hamptons.” The community is approximately 10 minutes from Westhampton and 15 minutes from Southampton.  Most of the resident ancestries were Italian, Irish, German, Polish, and English. The community has beautiful old style homes,  a town boat ramp, beaches, and old fashioned shops. The ocean bays also provide lots of opportunities for swimming, fishing, boating, water skiing, and windsurfing. Historic sites and museums include the Old School House Museum that is said to be the largest and best in Suffolk County. The museum is a collection of remnants of Quogue’s early history. East Quogue is the perfect place for spending time together with your family and friends. Read more on the history

The Home Escape THE WATCHTOWER Testimonials

I am not entirely sure I want to share this gem with anyone else

First off this is the first time I have bothered to review a holiday accommodation and secondly I am not entirely sure I want to share this gem with anyone else. But in the spirit in which we were received by the most gracious hosts of THE PLANTATION I feel duty bound to take the time to give credit where it is due.

The property itself is of course stunning. Look at the pictures. It does not disappoint in the flesh and nor is it photographed omitting noisy neighbours or ugly views. Secluded, subtle and an oasis of peaceful calm. Most previous reviews mention the fireflies on the lawn of an evening. I now understand why. Impossible to put into words or indeed film or photograph. What most don’t mention is the incredible calm of early morning there.

Good architectural fore thought meant my family of five ‘lived’ easily in this space. The space works very well. Location wise very convenient for Merida and the week barely gave us time to scratch the surface of all the sites within day trip distance. Utterly genuine honest hosts who are as enthused by the houses as we were. A rare find and a true ‘keeper’.

 

Adrian, England UK - THE PLANTATION

Beautiful, fabulous house in amazing spot!
The house was even more stunning than the photos. We spent a wonderful week relaxing in the house - just what I needed! Definitely coming back in the summer!

"Relaxed, Family Holiday"

We enjoyed the most fabulous 10 days at THE MAIN HOUSE in January. It was precisely the relaxed, family holiday that I had been hoping for...We walked, we jogged, we mountain biked for hours at a time and often without coming across another person - just sheep and cows and the magnificent views of Pigeon Bay for company. It was liberating to have a sense of isolation whilst having all the comforts you could possibly desire waiting for you back at the house.
