This dynamic East Hamptons home is located on the East End of Long Island in Wainscott, New York. The owners of the property originally purchased it 20 years ago when it was just a small structure. After a few expansions and renovations over a decade, in 2008, they decided they wanted an even bigger home and enlisted the help of architect Maziar Behrooz to build anew. The owners, who are originally from France, fell in love with the natural beauty of Long Island and wanted to reimagine their property without regard to its organic confines. In response to this request, architectural plans were created to include a dramatic 9,500-square-foot extension with asymmetrical triangles and a linear orientation that unifies the pool, grounds and garden.
If you think the Hamptons is only for Hollywood stars who can afford the glitz and glamour of life, you might want to look at the summertime playground’s hidden gems like CCS Architecture‘s Watermill Residence. The modest retreat was designed for a developer who wanted to sell property to new buyers at a moderate price level. A perfect starter home, it offers a down-to-earth vibe thanks to the architects’ simplicity and casual modernist taste.
This East Hampton home was originally built in the 1980s, but was recently renovated with a modern and airy flair reflective of its inhabitants’ colorful personalities. Led by Robert Young Architects, the transformation included new roof lines, as well as the addition of a small dining room and an outdoor living space, strategically placed to open up the existing space and bring in more natural light, which was the secondary goal of the update.
The listing for this .28 acre East Hampton property is billed as “the ultimate beach cottage” and we’d have to agree. It’s owned by the English drummer Simon Kirke, best known for playing with the bands Free and Bad Company. There’s the main house, which was recently renovated, as well as a deck, pool and rear cottage currently configured as a music studio. The whole package, located right on Accabonac Harbor, has views of the harbor to the west and of Gardiner’s Bay to the east.
Comedian and co-host of “The View” Joy Behar just listed her 4,000-square-foot vacation home in East Hampton for $3.8 million. Behar, who is once again co-host of the daytime chat show after a two-year hiatus, as well as the host of “Late Night Joy,” also has an apartment on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. She purchased the classic Hamptons home in 2012 for $2,875,000, which means she’ll have a tidy profit if it sells at the ask.
A former musical director/pianist from Brooklyn Heights and her historian husband contacted Dumbo-based CWB Architects to build an adjacent pavilion at their home in Quogue on Southampton. The result is the wood-clad Piano Pavilion, which echoes the owners’ love for organic architecture, but makes a deliberate nod to its namesake instrument with the contour of its roof. The pavilion was made to function as a piano room and small office, but it also works as a guest room, which is important as the couple’s children and six granddaughters visit almost every weekend.
This stylish Bridgehampton Residence was designed to accommodate three generations of a family with growing children. Featuring big sliding doors and windows under a collection of sloped roofs, the wood-clad retreat plays between the indoor and luscious outdoor living spaces right in the heart of the Hamptons. In order to accommodate a multigenerational family, CCS Architecture gut-renovated and extended an existing dwelling, which went from four bedrooms to eight and gained a garage.
One of Hollywood’s cutest couples has listed their Hamptons home that is possibly just as adorable as they are. Curbed reports that Naomi Watts and Liev Schreiber have put their Amagansett residence on the market for $5,850,000.
The 6,100-square-foot shingle-style cottage is “a charming blend of beachcomber chic and traditional style,” according to the listing for the six-bedroom, 7.5-bathroom home. And in true Hamptons fashion, it’s the outdoor space that’s really magnificent. In addition to the gunite pool, there’s a pool house with a pergola-covered terrace, an outdoor brick fireplace, and sprawling landscaped gardens.
Though it may seem unlikely, there are some similarities between art and real estate, one of the biggest being that with big fish come big numbers. That’s definitely the case for billionaire art collector and gallery owner Adam Lindemann–buyer of Andy Warhol’s former Montauk estate, Eothen, which was listed for $85 million. The contemporary art world high-roller recently listed his nearby property at 406 Old Montauk Highway for $29.5 million.
The home was built in 2004; After he acquired it, Lindemann–who is married to gallerist Amalia Dayan, granddaughter of the late Israeli politician Moshe Dayan–hired British architect David Adjaye to take on a complete redesign. The 5,000- square-foot, six-bedroom home is now a unique residence in the far-east end of Long Island affectionately referred to as “the end of the world,” though the former fishing enclave has in recent years become a more-chill-than-the-Hamptons hip celebrity party spot.
“I knew Andy in the early 1980s as a very young man, and I’m a collector of his work . . . I’m very lucky to have this opportunity to live out this dream. It’s a work of art.” This is what billionaire art collector and Upper East Side gallery owner Adam Lindemann told the Post regarding going into contract on Andy Warhol’s $85 million former Montauk estate and equestrian farm.
Warhol bought the 30-acre compound, known as “Eothen,” in 1972 along with filmmaker friend Paul Morrissey for a mere $225,000, putting Montauk on the map as an A-list retreat on par with the East End. As 6sqft reported when the listing hit the market in June, “For years, the artist used the compound as a city retreat, entertaining friends and luminaries that included Jackie Onassis, Mick Jagger, Elizabeth Taylor and John Lennon. Back then, guests of Warhol enjoyed 600 feet of private oceanfront and 24 acres on the bluffs overlooking the ocean.” And now Lindemann, whose fortune comes from his father George Lindemann‘s success in pharmaceuticals and pipeline companies, can try to relive these glory days.
