October 28, 2016 | By Dawn Watson | A sneak peak at the Hamptons houses owned and rented by America’s presidents throughout history | As the elections loom, it’s easy to get caught up in politics, especially as this year’s upcoming decision will be anything but business as usual.
Amagansett Dunes | October 24, 2016 | The “Dunes” is a place of magic. Quaint cottages and beach shacks from another era sit comfortably alongside jaw-dropping feats of contemporary architecture – homes that test the limits of modern design and engineering; and other homes, traditional in style, customized with every state-of-the art modern amenity.
