Last year, the Hamptons real estate market experienced one of the most dynamic high seasons to date, in which unprecedented sales, negotiations and market behaviors ensued. It was a year to remember, indeed, especially so for Douglas Elliman’s Eklund|Gomes Team. “2021 was our biggest year yet because we officially broke $4.5 billion in transactions, expanded to 12 different markets across the nation and officially have over 85 agents,” says John Gomes, co-founder of Eklund|Gomes at Douglas Elliman.
Getting boots on the ground in the Hamptons was a natural progression for the team—a step toward an even bigger year ahead. “We’ve tapped top-producing agents Kyle Rosko and Marcy Braun to join our team because of their long history and dedication to the Hamptons market,” says Fredrik Eklund, co-founder of Eklund|Gomes. As the pandemic simmers down and city dwellers once again flock to the East End, the market is primed for another firecracker year. As Julia Spillman, CEO of Eklund|Gomes, puts it, “The Hamptons market could not be any hotter, and if you are not already there, you’re late.”
Here, two of The Eklund|Gomes Team’s hottest listings out East.
51 West End Road
What better place to plant roots out East than in a picturesque seaside abode in East Hampton? Sprawled across 1.51 acres with approximately 170 feet of ocean frontage on a private stretch of Georgica Beach, this is the quintessential Hamptons beach house. The 6,100-square-foot, five-bedroom, 5 ½-bathroom abode was built in 1926 by Roger Bullard, architect of the Maidstone Club, and offers glorious views from every room. A three-car garage, a full gym, its central location, plus the potential for expansion, make this one of the most desirable on-the-market homes right now. $60,000,000, 51 West End Road, East Hampton, Kyle Rosko, 631.678.7179, Marcy Blum, 516.375.6146, Eklund|Gomes at Douglas Elliman
30 Mathews Road
Travel to the end of a long winding driveway to find this striking 14-acre estate. 30 Mathews Road is one of Wainscott’s crown jewels, housing seven bedrooms, eight bathrooms and three half-bathrooms. The residence was built in 2010 by notable local builder Ben Krupinski and designed by architect Paul Rice, and it leaves no need unfulfilled. The double-height entry makes a grand statement, while a library, sunroom with a full wet bar, gym complete with a steam shower, three-car garage and a pool house sweeten the deal. Out back, a heated gunite pool overlooking Georgica Pond beckons, sure to be the backdrop to unforgettable days ahead. $59,995,000, 30 Mathews Road, Wainscott, Kyle Rosko, 631.678.7179, Marcy Blum, 516.375.6146, Martha Gundersen, 631.405.8436, Eklund|Gomes at Douglas Elliman
