Hamptons Panache!

Hello! Hope you had a fabulous weekend. Ours was fun, relaxing, dinner with friends, stopped by to a party friends  (wish I had my camera again) had a BBQ last night and plenty of time for downtime around the house which I have to say I really enjoyed. Ahhhh....the beautiful Hamptons, have you been? I am incredibly lucky to live just a few hours away from the gorgeous and infamous Hamptons. Yes, the traffic is a nightmare, housing prices are hard to wrap your brain around,  there really is such a thing as $25.00 lobster rolls and $18.00 drinks but there are also many other incredible even dare I say wonderfully old fashioned things about the Hamptons that makes it well....the one and only.  

The pristine beaches, miles of white sand, charming family owned farms, beautiful parks and preservation areas, world class restaurants, an art scene to rival any other, unparallelled shopping, serious people watching (if that's your thing) and of course houses that would take the gold if there were an Olympic event for beautiful homes! Each town has its own distinct flavor and there truly is something to love about each and every one of them. 

For homes, I think Southampton and East Hampton are pretty hard to beat in my humble non expert opinion. From your gorgeous grand gabled weathered shingle homes to the majestic tall imposing brick Georgians...there are countless homes worth drooling over that dot both the tony estate sections and the glistening Atlantic coastline. And let me tell  you  they come with equally impressive prices tags:) But let's put that little detail aside and talk about the beauty of these Hamptons homes. Today's post is dedicated to the panache of the quintessential Hampton homes. Ready for some serious eye candy? I think you will enjoy, this was a lot of fun to put together as it is such a unique world class enclave that brings together the biggest names in business, entertainment, music, art, a coastal residential setting. Here we go.....

Granted this post represents the tippy top of Hamptons real estate but if we are going to look, then let's go all the way right......
