Barnes Landing Association

Helen Codling Halsted, who owned the parcel of land in the 1950s that would become Barnes Landing, had a vision of what she wanted the area to look like.  In forming the Barnes Landing Association to develop properties, she retained the power to approve or disapprove all plans and specifications for homes and additions built on the land.

Upon her death, Halsted passed this approval process onto the Barnes Landing Association. On September 7, 1970, a document (LIBER 6813, PAGE 541) authorizing this transfer of power was filed with the Clerk of Suffolk County, Lester M. Albertson.

The Association established an Architectural Review Committee (ARC) to continue to respect Mrs. Halsted’s wishes. The purpose of this committee – comprised of architects, zoning planners and other professionals within the community – is to consider plans and specifications of all buildings and additions in Barnes Landing. *

It is a legal requirement and the responsibility of all property owners in the Association who anticipate building or making outside renovations to an existing structure to send their proposed plans in a timely manner to the Architectural Review Committee. Plans and other correspondence can be addressed to:

The Barnes Landing Association
P.O. Box 756
Amagansett, New York 11937
attention: Architectural Review Committee.

PDFs of plans can also be submitted via email to

* The Barnes Landing building and renovation approval process includes obtaining all proper permits from the Town of East Hampton. Homeowners that do not get ARC approval will not be able to request it after the fact, and may run a risk of having this come up in a future title search.
