Some people escape to the Hamptons to party, others to catch a wave.
Reading and basking and generally behaving like a writer on retreat appear to be the speed for this little cottage in the Long Island enclave of North Haven.
The 600-square-foot dwelling is listed for $550,000, which Curbed Hamptons says is about right for the neighborhood. (We’ll do the math for you: It’s $917 per square foot.) The cottage has two bedrooms and one bath, plus a free-standing art studio.
Located in easy walking distance to shopping and beaches on Sag Harbor and Noyack bays, the home sits on a smidge more than a fifth of an acre, perfect for retreating into the quiet of nature — or for building a bigger home.
The listing agent is Mary Ann Cinelli of Brown Harris Stevens.
