Tour A Historic East Hamptons Home That Stays True To It's Roots | Hamptons Cottages & Gardens

What better way to start off a Friday than with this absolutely beautiful Hampton home featured recently in Hamptons Cottages & Gardens. It seamlessly blends a sense of history and vintage pieces with modern and fresh elements and yet still manages to stay perfectly within the lines of classic style. It's aesthetic is somewhere right in the middle of not too much "country antique", not too much "stark and cold", it has hit the design sweet spot right on the bullseye.

"Part of it dates from 1716 and has remained in the same family for more than five decades, thanks to the current owner’s parents, who had the presence of mind to save the cedar-shingled saltbox from demolition and have it moved to their six-acre property near the ocean in the 1960s. The structure, which had occupied a farmstead where White’s pharmacy stands today, was slated to be torn down in order to make room for the municipal parking lot behind East Hampton’s Main Street."

Simple, classic saltbox style with a little cottage vibe mixed in.

This view just draws you in, neat landscaping and a cute little spot to sit, a home that if walking past makes you think "I bet that one is perfection inside".

The best blend of pattern, texture and vintage.

The kitchen receives doses of modern elements from faucets and hardware to lighting and sleek silhouetted barstools, it works and makes the space feel fresh and inviting.

A cozy spot to hang out.

More modern elements and wood tones provide contrast against neutral whites-upping the interest factor. Such a tasteful mix of old with new.

Yes please-the perfect spot for a little R&R.

These floors are spot on.

One of my favorite rooms in the home, so inviting and charming.

A built-in banquet offers plenty of seating and designates a separate spot to experience the yard and it's gardens.

Thanks for coming along!
