Former Home of Prolific Hamptons Architect Now for Rent

For more two decades, Norman Jaffe was the go-to architect for wealthy summer residents looking to make a statement in the well-heeled Long Island communities of the Hamptons. He designed more than 50 angular modern homes in the area and contributed his services for the renowned Gates of Grove Synagogue in East Hampton, which architecture critic Paul Goldberger called Jaffe's "greatest work." One such home was this 1978 construction in Bridgehampton, built not for a client, but for himself and his family. Jaffe apparently only lived here for two years before building himself another home nearby, but that hasn't kept the current owners from citing his name in their summer rental brokerbabble. The five-bed, four-bath house—which frankly looked much better new than it does now—is listed for rent at a whopping $140K for the summer season. That price includes a large lawn, direct access to Sam's Creek, and an easy walk to the beach.
