At the eastern edge of Long Island's South Shore is a remarkable town known as East Hampton. And within East Hampton, which happens to be a part of "The Hamptons" in Suffolk County, you will find an equally delightful little hamlet known as Amagansett. Amagansett is home to roughly 1,200 residents in the exclusive 11930 zip code. The hamlet is comprised of just over six-and-a-half square miles and is sometimes referred to as Skimhampton, specifically the area along Skimhampton Road south of Montauk Highway.
The name of the hamlet means "place of good water" and is derived from "Montaukett," a Native American term. The water to which the name refers is that of modern-day Indian Wells Beach. Beyond the beach, other remarkable destinations located in Amagansett include the Village by the same name, Beach Hampton, and the Devon Colony on Gardiner's Bay. Also here you'll find the Nature Conservancy which encompasses the Atlantic Double Dunes and Napeague's "Walking Dunes." This charming hamlet has a long history having been settled in the late 1600s. Unlike the rest of The Hamptons, Amagansett was settled by a trio of Dutch brothers and descendants of English settlers. Because of its rich history, there are multiple points of historical interest in the area.
In addition to all of this, Amagansett real estate is also quite impressive. In fact, the mansions in Amagansett may just be the most stunning in all of East Hampton. Homes for sale in Amagansett are almost exclusively single-family homes, and some were originally built in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.
