a glimpse of a few houses on the tour this year...
The Elizabethian-style Woodhouse Playhouse on Hunting Lane makes it on the tour this year. Built by the legendary philanthropist and arts patron Mary Woodhouse, today the home still honors the original role as a year-round music and theater school. It is important to note built by architect Francis Burrell Hoffman Jr. who worked hard to create the East Hampton Village as one of the country's premier summer colony. Awe-inspiring 75-foot-Great Room, a 30-foot gabled peak and church-like nave, an Aeolian-Skinner organ and massive fireplace. The residence has a long-history including attracting famous visitors — including John Drew, John Barrymore, Isadora Duncan, The Westminster Choir, and Metropolitan Opera greats.
Located in the historic Kilkare within the coveted Georgica Association, this home overlooks Georgica Pond and the Atlantic. Built by shipbuilders in 1877, the restored beauty shows a plethora of authentic details.
An early 20th-century Cottage with French & English influences in the Village
Showing the elements used in many typical homes in East Hampton in the early 20th century -- stucco, stone, and timber. This home is nestled on a quiet street in the Village. The interiors are decidedly French showing hand-finished plaster walls, antique limestone floors and mantels, period paneling, and a magnifique La Cornue range. The architecture is reminiscent of an English cottage. In collaboration, the Sag Harbor Architectural firm Beeton & Company and interior designer Sue Alefantis, designed every detail of this house to be a functional, modern home. Garden design by Michael Derrig of Landscape Details, to make the garden spaces function as outdoor rooms.
