Amagansett is for those who place a high value on enchantment and appreciate the subtle pairing of quiet with the understated luxury.
The drama here is nature's own, starting with the Amagansett Wildlife Refuge. Within this 36-acre protected area is one of the Island's very rare undeveloped coastal beaches, which is distinguished by their unique double dune system. The primary dunes are a barrier reef to the Atlantic Ocean. The secondary dunes proliferate with flora, from Cape Cod-like cranberry bogs to rare varieties of orchids. Spend some time looking out on this extravaganza and you will feel like you have found the missing piece to the puzzle.
