It seems to be the three million dollar question in Bridgehampton….What is happening with the Bull’s Head Inn and its neighboring commercial corners. It looks to me to be the “Revival of the Historic Mansions”. I find this very exciting and happy to see that the current owners of the properties are restoring and renovating the 19th- century mansions and keeping a part of Bridgehampton history alive (Thanks to the “Save the Bull’s Head Inn” committee). Another happy site, as I drove into work today, they finally razed the old dilapidated Beverage Distributor/gas station (not sure how that building didn’t fall down in the last storm). Let the Bridgehampton Beautification Begin!
After years of back and forth with permits and town objections the projects are finally approved and construction has begun. Now the question is – what will be going in the newly restored mansions and the new building on the old beverage/gas station site.
The Bull’s Head Inn is being totally restored and will be the show piece for a new hotel and restaurant. There will be five smaller buildings constructed on the property to house the conference center, health spa and lap pool.
The Greek Revival Mansion across the street from the Bull’s Head Inn started renovations sometime back and is now moving along at a much faster pace. This building is owned by the Bridgehampton Historical Society and will be made into a museum. Thanks to all the generous donations of the Bridgehampton community this dream renovation has become a reality and hopes to open next year.
The Beverage Distributor site is going to be a brand new office complex built in the same style as the Bull’s Head Inn. It will be 9,000 square feet and should be ready for occupancy next year
