Summer rentals are one way to experience the Hamptons. Another way, if you’ve got the capital, is to invest in a summer home to call your own.

From posh East Hampton to up-and-coming Montauk, Hamptons homes can range from half-a-million to tens of millions of dollars — and you’ll find everything from contemporary architectural masterpieces to cozy shingled cottages. Beachfront properties abound, of course, but they’re not necessarily the hottest commodities. In fact, according to a recent New York Times article, six out of 10 of the most expensive Hamptons home sales last year were inland. You can see why: We found a number of land-locked homes that offer privacy, pools, gyms, tennis courts and that quiet charm that the Hamptons are known for — and the beach is just a short walk or drive away.
