Shingled compound on Buell Lane
Original Osborne house (Buell Lane)
The original Shingle Style home, Osborne House, has been enlarged, and nestled in the Buell Lane compound shows modernity and history combined.
  A Handsome mid-century accents on Hither Lane
A tile mural of Benjamin Huntting’s Whaling Ship “Lucy” frames the hearth. Finished in 1921 this gem from the architects Polhemus and Coffin is an Egypt Lane landmark and one of East Hampton's most iconic houses.
