Relaxed Elegance

Welcome to Amagansett

Nestled between East Hampton and Montauk lies the friendly and unpretentious beachfront community of Amagansett. This charming hamlet offers beautiful ocean and bay beaches, agriculture, fishing, clamming, and horseback riding. It is also a popular retreat for nature lovers, thanks to the generosity of local families who have donated hundreds of acres to the Peconic Land Trust for preservation and public enjoyment. There are now approximately 600 acres of preserved woodlands in the North Amagansett area that are open to the public for hiking, birdwatching and nature study. This land offers habitat for a wide variety of sensitive species, and protects the town’s Water Recharge Overlay District, which sits above the deepest part of the aquifer, our sole source of drinking water.

Amagansett’s small village center has a relaxed and inviting vibe, and the lush green space of Amagansett Square is a popular spot for unwinding, playing, or meeting friends. Surrounding the green, and down Main Street, are an interesting array of shops and restaurants, yoga studios, and of course, the famous live music venue, the Stephen Talkhouse.

Visitors to Amagansett often remark that the hamlet has a feeling of timelessness. With a long, colorful history dating back to the arrival of English and Dutch settlers in 1680, many buildings and properties are still standing tall that were constructed as far back as the 18th century. This dedication to maintaining the hamlet’s roots has made Amagansett a highly sought-after real estate location among discerning families and individuals.

Today, classic architectural influences and modern conveniences can be found in nearly every Amagansett home. At the same time, the hamlet’s many amenities, scenic woodlands and parks, and stunning beaches offer buyers a plethora of reasons to make the community their own.
