If you’ve ever driven through East Hampton, then you’ve probably seen this beautiful white house that sits at the intersection of Main Street and Woods Lane. It’s currently on the market for $12.5 Million which means we can all see inside now. The house at 6 Woods Lane was completely renovated in 1992 but was barely ever lived in although it was always meticulously maintained right down to the flower boxes.

“Standing at the village door one of the most visibly imposing homes in East Hampton, “THE WHITE HOUSE,” is now available. The property sits on 2.98+/- beautifully landscaped acres. Hidden from the street on the side of the house, the grounds are reminiscent of a 17th century French estate. A cherry tree alee leads to a fountain, and tennis court sheltered by 30 year old pines There is a 20′ x 53′ heated Gunite pool with pool house and gazebo. A three-car garage is attached to the original barn. This historic mansion was totally restored in 1992 right down to the flower boxes in the grand early American tradition. Entering the house from a circular cobblestone driveway, heated below ground to melt ice, the main level is entirely covered in marble floors with a rosewood paneled library, formal dining room with fireplace, and sun room, with diamond-paned windows. The kitchen is equipped with a double Viking oven, Sub- Zero refrigerator, and coffered ceiling. The second floor has three en suite bedrooms, two with wood burning fireplaces. Down a long hallway are three smaller bedrooms, perfect for guests or staff quarters . The third floor has a large, charming sitting room with a en suite bedroom. The lower level is outfitted with a rosewood bar, fireplace, sauna, Jacuzzi and wine cellar. This iconic “White House” is in the village that was dubbed by National Geographic magazine as the most beautiful in America, and minutes from world famous ocean beaches”
