Relaxed Hamlet With Rich Maritime History

Amagansett

Amagansett has something for everyone. While it attracts A-list celebrities, it's much less flashy than its neighbors to the west, East Hampton, Southampton and Bridgehampton. With access to a generous swath of oceanfront as well as the bay, it has a rich maritime history where local fishermen still bring in the day's catch. Another draw is its exclusive golf clubs and a vibrant downtown scene.

What to Expect

Farms and fishing still thriving in Amagansett

Despite a seasonal influx of celebrities and multimillionaires, Amagansett's agricultural and maritime histories are not forgotten. Farms are still being cultivated with local produce sold at several farm stands nearby and bay men still fish the waters and work their trade. Amagansett's Main Street has several boutiques and restaurants including the always popular music club Stephen Talkhouse. Two private, top-notch golf courses, the South Fork Country Club and East Hampton Golf Club, offer yet another reason why the wealthy come to Amagansett.

Historic shingled houses inland to modern beachfront houses

While Amagansett is more relaxed than other Hamptons enclaves, real estate prices remain high. Houses currently on the market start at about $1 million and move upwards to $10 million. Actors Alec Baldwin and Robert Downey Jr. both own historic homes in Amagansett. Other celebrities with Amagansett connections include Bill and Hillary Clinton, Paul McCartney and Gwyneth Paltrow. Marilyn Monroe and Arthur Miller also once summered here.
