Habitat

An East Hampton house with views of Hook Pond from almost every room is nestled on a preserved 1.78-acre site with 328 feet of pond frontage. Designed by the dean of local architects, Alfred Scheffer, and reconfigured so that it now flows into four sections, the house was built in the mid-1950s for the Right Rev. Austin Pardue, the bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Pittsburgh, and his wife, Dorothy Klotz Pardue, a former nationally ranked tennis player. The Bishop’s Cottage, a one-room building he used as a writing studio, is still there.
