Top Hamptons real estate broker, Chris Burnside of Brown Harris Stevens, shares his favorite spots around town.
Please share your favorite area of the Hamptons and why you love it. Sag Harbor’s waterfronts. I’ve lived on the water in Sag Harbor for years, waterski whenever I can and am more relaxed on the water.
What is your favorite place to exercise or work out? With COVID-19 causing gyms to shut down, I’ve now realized that home gyms are most efficient for use of time and cleanliness, so we’ve upgraded our equipment to be able to get a full workout at home.
Where do you like to source food (farm stands, local restaurants or gourmet stores)? Local farm stands all the way. You can get the freshest food while supporting local growers directly.
What are your go-to clothing stores around town? Polo Ralph Lauren offers everything I need.

What is your favorite local brunch spot? Duryea’s. The fresh seafood and incredible location on the water can’t be beat.
What is your favorite local spa and spa treatment? Naturopathica.
Where’s the best place to spot celebs in the Hamptons? Private yachts and social gatherings at private residences. But of course you never know who you’ll see next to you on the beach, at the market or even the gas station.
What is your dream home street or address? Meadow Lane in Southampton Village. Incomparable classic estates by the ocean.
What neighborhood are you loving right now? Sagaponack is still one of my favorites as neighborhoods have become overpopulated. The farm views and vistas in Sagaponack can’t be beat.
What are you most looking forward to this summer? Boat rides with my family and watching my daughter Amelia compete in horse shows.
