Located south of the highway in Amagansett village (Amagansett School District) is a newly gut-renovated in-town live/work estate with saltwater pool, steps from village shops, restaurants and ocean beaches. 208 Main Street, formerly the historic Balasses House, has undergone an exquisite transformation resulting in an unparalleled opportunity to have a limited retail business with prime visibility on Main Street combined with a sophisticated and private residence in the rear.
The rare LBO zoned property features a newly renovated 5 Bedroom, 4.5 bathroom main house, 1000 s.f. of store/office areas facing Main Street, a new gunite saltwater pool, a giant skylighted barn at the rear of the property as well as an additional pool bar and a brand new 2 car garage. The gut renovation uncovers much of the original character from the 1800's historic home while pushing it forward with modern day functionality and clean Danish inspired lines. The result is an elegant & sophisticated compound with a traditional yet modern aesthetic.
Highlights include: 5 bedrooms, 4 full bathrooms, an ADA compliant half bath, a true chef's kitchen outfitted with Wolf, Sub-Zero, Carrera marble, custom cabinetry with built-in coffee and beverage center, chevron oak floors, a library with wood-burning stove, media room with Surya black limestone floors by Exquisite Surfaces, inspired bathrooms with custom concrete sinks and Waterworks fixtures. Gorgeous tile work by Commune Design, wide plank oak floors in the parlor that also features an original wood-burning fireplace and an enormous multi-functional room with a high visibility window on Main Street and a new bluestone patio behind it. Attention to detail is evident from all new Marvin windows and doors, custom designer lighting, to zinc coated copper gutters and a new roof. This is a once in a lifetime chance to own a residential/limited retail zoned in-town estate that has everything.
