One Year in Westhampton Beach

By
Home Stager with Styled and Sold Home Staging and Staging Training

I moved to Westhampton Beach, NY one year ago this month. What a wonderful place to live!I feel like I've been here forever.

There is always something going on and so much to do in this beautiful town. In this past year, I joined the Westhampton Beach Chamber of Commerce, I joined and became a Trustee at the Westhampton Beach Historical Society. I was a judge at the Mary O. Fritchie art show right here in town. I marched in the St. Patty's Day Parade. I volunteer and the Farmers Market and I have met and made friends with the nicest people imaginable! This is a small town with big heart.

My business Styled and Sold, has grown by leaps and bounds this year in part thanks to referrals and introductions from the many wonderful friends and business associates I've made here. Thank you all! You know who you are!

If you have never visited the "First Hampton", Westhampton Beach, I encourage you do to so.

I'm staying.

There is no place like HOME!

An article I wrote about my town that was published in Homes of the Hamptons:

Welcome Home to Westhampton Beach

 When I think of Westhampton Beach, I think of Dune Rd. and the miles and miles of  gorgeous sandy beaches and waterfront. Often called “The First Hampton”, beautiful Westhampton Beach is conveniently located only 78 miles from Midtown Manhattan.  Main St., known for it’s delightful flowering baskets and window boxes is sprinkled with unique shops, fabulous restaurants, art galleries, and the performing arts center or “whbpac”, a vibrant cultural venue for theater, music, dance and film. Just steps from Main St. is the village green replete with a Victorian gazebo and home to the Mary O. Fritchie Outdoor Juried Art Show, on summer evenings you can enjoy the summer concert series on the green. The Westhampton Beach Chamber of Commerce proudly hosts a diverse Farmers Market every Saturday right in the middle of town starting in April and running into December, - the longest running outdoor market in the state of NY. Westhampton Beach is not only a vacationers paradise but also a wonderful place to live!

Allegra - don't you miss the DC traffic at all? We staged a house on Capitol Hill in DC yesterday and hit all all time record. Almost two hours to get there in almost 100 degree heat. Wrecks everywhere, standing still traffic on the Beltway and Pepco outages so traffic lights not working downtown, etc.

I've only been the the Hamptons once but the "old school" charm was wonderful. I'm glad you're enjoying your new home. It looks fantastic.

Lynn, you made me laugh! I remember merchandising a 5 story (very narrow) townhouse near Georgetown ( I forget the name of the neighborghood...Fox Court? Fox Hall?). Anyway, it was 105 degrees and the windows could not be opened, they were painting the outside trim. I was never so hot in my life. No, I do not miss that!! However, we have our share of traffic out here in the summer.
