We renovated and fully design the interiors of an 1852 historic house in the Village of Sag Harbor. Sitting on a full acre of lush English gardens, the house was built an astronomer and inventor, and it was designed in the Italianate style, featuring a tower (campanella) and has an irregular geometry.
We updated the original 19th century layout for modern luxury living: We combined two smaller bathrooms on the second floor into a large, sun-filled master bath. We transformed the tower into a cozy library equipped with a wet bar, and re-purposed its second story into a quiet reading and meditation room. Central Air Conditioning was carefully installed with minimal disruption to the original walls. The kitchen was completely refurbished with top-of-the-line Gaggenau appliances and solid birch wood custom cabinetry designed by our studio. The countertops and kitchen island top are white Carrara marble with beveled edges which makes for a minimalist, floating look. We preserved and refurbished the original kitchen hearth and brick pantry. The rest of the house was harmonized through a light green-gray color palette developed in collaboration with Farrow & Ball and carefully restoring the original flooring pine plank flooring and existing woodwork.
