The Hamptons

5 Luxury Outdoor Amenities for Your Hamptons Home

If you're looking for homes for sale in the Hamptons, a property with an outdoor area packed with luxury amenities will surely be at the top of your list. The Hamptons are known for gorgeous waterfront scenery, so having outdoor amenities to make the most of the stunning views around you is a must.

Whether you’re looking to build in the Hamptons or searching for Hamptons homes for sale, there’s a good chance you’ll be spending time and money to enjoy the surrounding landscape. While it’s easier to buy a home that already has the amenities you want, you can also do some renovations or additions once you move in. Knowing what you want will help make the buying and renovation process much more manageable. Here are some of the most luxurious amenities to consider for your outdoor area.

If you’re looking to impress your guests and enjoy the outdoors throughout the summer and some cooler fall nights, an outdoor brick oven could be the perfect addition to your home.

There’s a good chance you won’t find any Hampton homes for sale that already have an outdoor brick oven, so this is something that you’d most likely need to purchase or build. Thankfully, there are a few options to choose from, depending on the features your home already has.

You can purchase a kit that will allow you to build a Chicago wood-fired brick oven so that you and your guests can enjoy a variety of meals without ever leaving your outdoor area. A few different companies can also build a custom brick oven if you want a specific color or features. Either way, an outdoor brick oven would make a perfect addition to your outdoor space.

Hidden outdoor speakers

The Hamptons are known for their elegance; unfortunately, outdoor speakers become a hassle when they get weathered and become an eyesore. Even some of the best luxury speakers will start to show signs of rust or fading when mounted on an overhang around your house.

There are some creative options to choose from that will allow you to enjoy music in your outdoor space without worrying about your speaker becoming an eyesore. One of these choices is a subtle speaker rock, which sits on the ground disguised as landscape rocks. Many companies offer high-end rock speakers so that you don’t have to sacrifice quality for style.

There are decent options for high-end rock speakers at Best Buy and other similar retailers. These speakers come in different sizes and colors to match your home’s landscaping style.

Another choice is speakers that look more like small solar lights; these can be embedded near or in your landscape to create a seamless and subtle look. While they may not be completely hidden, they’re more subtle than traditional hanging speakers. Not to mention, you can even hide these speakers beside or underneath any foliage you’ve planted.

Gas fire table

You may find some homes for sale in the Hamptons with a fire pit or gas fire table. These luxury outdoor amenities offer a nice added touch that can complement a waterfront view and prolong your outdoor season as the weather starts to cool down.

Gas fire pits and tables come in many different shapes, sizes, and styles. Some can even be converted into a full-sized coffee or dinner table.

Some high-end tables offer an elegant marble style to add a personal touch that matches your current outdoor furniture or landscape. There are also different stone types, such as marble or granite, and different colors available.

Considering that one of the main attractions of the Hamptons is the beauty of the water, why not add a little more? There’s a good chance you’ll be able to enjoy a nice salty breeze from the ocean, but a nearby water fountain can add some extra visual and auditory appeal.

There are few things as peaceful as running water with an otherwise quiet, sunny waterfront view. Of course, the water fountain you want will need to match your outdoor area. Thankfully, water fountains can be enjoyed in any setting, whether you have an enclosed patio or a fully outdoor space.

You can find specialty outdoor water fountains of various sizes, shapes, and styles. You could even purchase a water fountain with a fire element to combine two luxury outdoor amenities. Though you won’t find any Hamptons homes for sale with a fire-filled water fountain, adding this luxurious feature will make your new home stand out.

If you have a nice outdoor area overlooking the water, a gazebo is a beautiful addition that adds significant appeal. Even HGTV offers a “best-of” list for luxury outdoor gazebos. You’ll have a few different options depending on the size of the space you have available.

A luxury gazebo can offer relief from the beaming summer sun as you relax by the pool. It can also provide shelter from a cool breeze or rain when the weather takes a turn. Some gazebos have detachable shades or window covers that can be helpful no matter what the weather is.

Realistically, gazebos can be whatever you want them to be. Some options are small and quaint, offering a unique aesthetic designed primarily for looks. Gazebos can also be large and functional, housing a small outdoor kitchen or other amenities.

If you’re shopping for homes for sale in the Hamptons, an outdoor gazebo is a desirable outdoor amenity to complement a gorgeous waterfront view. A waterfront gazebo can even make for an excellent photo shoot opportunity for special events.
