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.

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”. That’s where most home builders go wrong, they can try and make the houses look a specific way, even though most customers would rather have their own say on decoration and design. Not all home builders are like this though, for example, these home builders north carolina have been celebrated beforenow for providing their clients with lovely modern homes that are liveable and can still be suited to the customer’s taste. That’s exactly what the builder of this house did. Hopefully, you’ll 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 Lawn Furniture and 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!

Tickets to the Opening Night Cocktail Party are $200 each, which includes entry to the House Tour the following day. Tickets to the self-guided 2018 East Hampton House & Garden Tour are $65 in advance and $75 on the day of the tour. Admission can be bought via:
