The Hampton’s on New York State’s Long Island, some people call it home, most people will never visit. If you’ve ever travelled out there on a summer weekend then unless you own a home out there, it might be your first and last visit. Traffic is notoriously terrifying, unless you can somehow hitch a ride in a friends helicopter.
Pretty much the only thing that’s going to get us out to the Hamptons (besides a helicopter) is a friend who has a summer backyard like this. While we’re not crazy about the furniture, kind of very Pottery Barn-ish, the house, the pool and the deck are picture perfect. And the hint that the house might actually be on the sand with the dunes rising up just behind the grill.
