Quintessential Luxury Beach Cottage
Sited directly on Shinnecock Bay, the 2,304-square-foot, two-story, shingle-style cottage was built in 1960. Sunshine-filled rooms set off the white, beach-style decor. Moreover, the bountiful windows capture water views from every room.
The four-bedroom, four-bath home has cozy fireplaces in both the living room and master bedroom. New homeowners will benefit from the recently-updated kitchen complete with new marble countertops.

Outdoor living is inviting at this luxury beach cottage. The large deck stretches across the back and overlooks the bay. Leave the remnants of a day at the beach behind with help from the outdoor shower. Indeed, the generous 1.33 acre parcel allows plenty of space for expansion! A swimming pool would be the perfect addition.
Ann Bancroft made an indelible mark on Hollywood as the seductress in the The Graduate and with her Oscar award-winning performance in The Miracle Worker. Though she passed away in 2005, her husband Mel Brooks continues to work at age 93. The skilled performer still keeps fans in stitches. However he is best known for his unique comedic takes in Blazing Saddles, Spaceballs and Young Frankenstein.
The Brooks-Bancroft luxury beach cottage is ideal for anyone who enjoys a slice of beach life with a little celebrity history on the side. Also, the address itself is quite prestigious. The home sits on one of Southampton’s most notable streets, Meadow Lane, also nicknamed “Billionaire Lane.” Now on the market at $4.995 million, the listing agent is Michaela Keszler of Douglas Elliman, Southampton.
