I want the house. New construction in a traditional style by Hamptons builders – cedar shakes, moldings and trim and hardwood floors throughout. Spacious, gracious rooms and hallways reminiscent of Rye. I’m not sure about the location, but with proper landscaping and screening (bamboo, anyone?) it could work. The plot itself was fine, more than ¾ of an acre, some of it going all the way through to the street behind the house. That means no neighbors at the back – and there aren’t many other immediate neighbors. Sitting on the front porch, we both felt as though the house was very right.
