With the 2014 US Open in town, we found nearby homes that are equipped with all you need to perfect that grand slam-winning backhand serve, since before you become the next Serena Williams or Roger Federer, the world’s greatest tennis stars would not be here without an appropriate place to practice on. Halstead Property presents the Centre Court Series Advantage at 18 Cranberry Lane in the Hamptons.

On the grounds of the original Devon Colony in the Highlands of Amagansett, this exquisitely landscaped 5.2 acres of land includes a Har-Tru American Red Clay tennis court that  is oriented North-South to provide minimum sun glare during a match. These courts are irrigated and sit to the East of the Main House separated by mature plantings as to not disturb the easy living of family and friends in the main house, dining on the patio or relaxed enjoyment in the heated pool.

The residence is one of five original homes in a historic enclave, and is ripe with original architectural details from decorative columns, to French doors and a tiled fireplace in the main living room. Best of all, when it’s time to rest your weary muscles after a long day of tennis practice you can rest easy in the lofty en-suite master bedroom that boasts unparalleled views of the tranquil blue-green waters of Gardiners Bay. Imagine waking up to the aforementioned views, combined with the anticipation of sitting down to eat breakfast in a storied outdoor setting of your choice – from a uniquely proportioned parterre garden and an elevated brick patio with decorative fountain to any spot that suits you on the vast, and vibrant green lawn that seems to blend straight in to the ocean. In addition, the property includes a two bedroom, one bath guest cottage and a newly renovated studio to accommodate a healthy number of guests.

Sleek, modern, contemporary, inviting, state of the art, spacious, happy….the new Halstead Property East Hampton Office. Get a feel for it yourself and watch our recently released video highlighting our newest crown jewel on the East End.


If you are in the Hamptons this weekend, stop by and say hello. We are located at 2 Newtown Lane on the bustling corner of Newtown Lane and Main Street.

Guaranteed waterfront views, airy interiors, an in-season concierge and so much more—Harbor’s Edge is the epitome of effortless, luxe living in the Hamptons. This 15-unit development complex at 21 West Water Street in the heart of Sag Harbor is currently on the market as represented by Keith Green of our East Hampton office. Harbor’s Edge has been in active development for about two years, according to Green, and is expected to be complete within the next six weeks. 

Developed by Joseph LoMonaco of Water Street Development at Sag Harbor, LLC, Harbor’s Edge has eight two-to-three-bedroom lofts, four two-bedroom bungalows and three penthouses. “Joe LoMonaco made more right decisions than any developer I’ve ever worked with,” Green said. “We had a developer that would build a product that would stand the test of time.”

Residents are promised private yards or bluestone terraces—perfect for sunset gazing and entertaining.  As Green puts it, “the fact that all 15 of our apartments face the harbor is an architectural phenomenon.”

The interiors prove to be equally phenomenal. Features include hardwood flooring in a driftwood-like finish, custom kitchen cabinetry, high-end appliances by Sub-Zero and Thermador, spa-like bathrooms with heated floors and spacious living-dining areas.

Green aptly refers to Harbor’s Edge as a “resort community.” Residents will have access to the rooftop complete with a lounge, 50-foot lap pool, limestone sundeck and wet bar. Above all, the complex’s two greatest amenities pertain to its location on the harbor and in charming Sag Harbor Village, Green says. Harbor’s Edge is minutes from a myriad of restaurants and neighborhood institutions such as Long Wharf and Sag Harbor Cinema.

As Green says, “your vacation begins the moment you arrive.”
