Topping Rose House
For East Coasters, the Hamptons represent a place and a mindset. They conjure timeless, chic shake shingle estates, quaint towns with a lot of coastal class, languid days on white sand beaches, impromptu lawn games, and cocktails on warm evenings. Topping Rose House, named for its original owner, captures this feeling all year around. In 2010 the Bridgehampton home and barn were marvelously restored into the luxury retreat it is today. The historic home’s 22 impeccably decorated rooms are scattered between the main house, studio and cottages, where period references are balanced by edgy art and clean sculptural lines. All of them are united in feel and color scheme—warm stone walls, polished hardwood floors, generous windows, and soft, contemporary furnishings. Cottage rooms have sliding glass doors that open to the lawns while guestrooms in the main house have features original to the home including cozy fireplaces and traditional wood moldings. Special touches such as the recipe and makings for one of the specialty house cocktails welcome guests to their rooms. Everything you need for a relaxing respite are at your fingertips. A farm-to-table gourmet award-winning restaurant, spa, fitness center, heated outdoor pool, house vehicles from Lexus, and beach shuttle are all on-property. If you can pull yourself away, this luxury Hamptons retreat is within easy walking distance from boutiques, art galleries, cafes and, of course, the beach.
