Amagansett, located in East Hampton, was originally a whaling and
fishing colony. It is well-known for the abundance of outdoor and
beach activities through its nature preserves and well-kept ocean

traditional with post-modern where old architecture meets new design.

Hamptons, you will find homes ranging in price on average from the
$800s to $35 million and more. You will find a gorgeous layout of
rustic cottages with ocean front access, ranch-style houses and
