Design, Hamptons, Landscape Architecture

This Sagaponack, NY home might just be the perfect antidote for the summer of hell; it would definitely make an insufferable commute worth it. Summerhill Landscapes, Steven Harris Architects and Rees Roberts + Partners designed the idyllic Hamptons retreat on a swath of meadowland where the tall grass is never far from the sea on the East End of Long Island.

2983 Montauk Highway, english barn

Forgot Hamptons beach houses–try farmhouses instead. Pictured above is an original 1740s barn that sits on 3.7 acres of land in Sagaponack, a village of Southampton. The structure’s intact posts and beams are an example of the traditional English barn design, construction that was brought over by English settlers. The architecture has been meticulously restored and slightly altered to accommodate living spaces. The result? A truly unique residence surrounded by beautiful land and a pool. Start saving your pennies, as it is now on the market asking $2.4 million.

Daniels Lane, Martin Architects, Sagaponack, house extension, modern adition, cedar louvers, passive house, contrasting volumes

This Daniels Lane residence consists of two contrasting parts—an existing stone beach house and a textured modern addition to its side. Settled atop a grassy site in the Southampton village of Sagaponack, this beautiful dwelling was re-designed by local studio Martin Architects, who not only created a striking second volume with a layer of wood screens, but cleverly lifted and rotated the old stone beach house to provide new views and more light.

Blaze Makoid Architecture's Daniels Lane, Long Island, Rustic Modernism, Norman Jaffe, afromosia wood, seaside home, quiet elegant design

This quiet and elegant residence by Blaze Makoid Architecture was created for a father with three children who wanted a house that wasn’t ‘extraneous or busy’. Located in Sagaponack, this stylish oceanfront dwelling takes inspiration from two iconic 70s buildings: Tod Williams’ Tarlo House (1979) and architect Norman Jaffe’s Perlbinder House (1970)—the latter credited for bringing ‘rustic Modernism’ to Eastern Long Island. Named Daniels Lane, this home’s simple clean lines are a modern reflection of its client’s wishes.

Live in Billy Joel’s Hamptons Home for Just $250K?

By Aisha Carter, Thu, July 24, 2014

Billy Joel’s Hamptons home, Sagaponack Hamptons residence, Nate Berkus-designed

How would you like to live in the Piano Man’s Hamptons home? Well, for all you Billy Joel fans, your moment in the sun has come, because for just $250,000 you can have his Hamptons home for all of… the month of August. It appears that after experiencing a somewhat turbulent journey with this home—the house has been on and off the market several times since 2009—Joel and his pad are parting ways yet again, and this time he’s spiced up his offer a bit. Not only has the price dropped from an astronomical $23.5 million to a slightly less astronomical $19.95 million, but the singer/songwriter has apparently opened his eyes to the possibility of renting… however pricey. Baby steps.

We’ve all seen this phenomenon when a seller has such a personal attachment to a home that they can’t seem to price it reasonably? Is this one of those instances? Or is the Sagaponack home worth the cost? You be the judge.
