Step back into History, The David Huntting House, circa 1800

Located in East Hampton’s Historic District, the David Huntting House is one of five distinguished homes on the 2018 East Hampton House & Garden Tour, traditionally held over Thanksgiving weekend. This stately shingled house is known, by local architectural historians, for its beautifully proportioned pilastered front door surround, its paneled double doors and a remarkable curving stairway. The house has undergone a major renovation and restoration in the last two years and looks refreshed and appealing. Come and get first looks at this historical gem!

9 Two Holes Of Water Rd, East Hampton, NY

Known as the William H. Babcock House (circa 1720), this regal residence originally stood on Main Street and was relocated to its present location in 1964.  The white picket fence is a replica from its Main Street days. The owners, working with East End architect Kitty McCoy, renovated the historic timber frame house in 2016-17.  Materials and details from the existing house were judiciously added to the new additions.This aesthetically pleasing, local landmark is now located South-of-the-Highway, East Hampton Village.

A Modern “Box” Infused with Warmth, Color and the Illusions of Space

Situated on Bluff Road, overlooking the Atlantic, this spectacular Modern house has been infused with warmth, color, and the design aesthetic of renowned interior designer David Netto.  To very loosely paraphrase Winston Churchill, this is the lesson: “Never, never, never settle for a boring house.

Respect the box, but never let modernism harden into a doctrine that stops people from being comfortable or from living the way they want to. It may be the architect’s mission to create a crisp, minimal envelope, but it is the decorator’s job to find ways to add mood and sensuality, even through illusion”.  Enjoy the collaboration of architectural and interior design missions, woven into perfect harmony in this “Mid-Century Summer’s Night Dream”.

“Salty Dog” Begs for some Lap TimeAffectionately named by designer Jessie Della Femina, “Salty Dog” is her answer to the challenge of building a new, modern home that looks like it belongs with the quaint cottages that have dotted Wainscott for centuries. It has been designed to be traditional and unassuming in style – both inside and out – but with modern amenities and technology.  With a smaller lot, the house maximizes its footprint and outdoor features with a small pool, outdoor dining area, and an outdoor sitting area with a fire place. Ms. Della Femina is an avid estate sale visitor with a passion for recovering, repainting and restoring the items she finds. More than three quarters of the furniture and decorative items in the house were found at local estate sales (some were refurbished and others left as they were found). Enjoy “Salty Dog” – bring a biscuit!
