Nothing says summer more than alfresco entertaining, whether it’s a laid-back barbecue, a sit-down dinner under the stars, or a festive cocktail party amid a still unfurling garden. Last month, HC&G was the media sponsor for the 11th installment of Much Ado About Madoo, a benefit for the Madoo Conservancy in Sagaponack, and it is always a splendid event. (Full disclosure: My partner, Alejandro Saralegui, is the executive director of Madoo and also an editor at large for this magazine. Okay, I’m biased.) During the daytime, the splendid grounds are transformed into a marketplace filled with vendors selling a meticulously curated selection of home, garden, and fashion accessories, and then at night everyone switches gears to party mode, meandering around the idiosyncratic plantings, hornbeam bower, ginkgo grove, and brand-new rill, clutching a special Gin Dandy cocktail and breathless with wonder at what nature can do. All day long, the skies threatened rain, but it never did, and after all these years, it never has. (We had reports of isolated downpours in Sag Harbor, Water Mill, East Hampton, and Southampton, but somehow the rain stayed away.) You can’t really have a garden party in a tent, so every year Alejandro selects a day and prays for the best. Given the vicissitudes of nature, it seems entirely appropriate to throw caution to the wind.

A Legacy of Showhouses
During the past 20 years, we have presented almost 100 designer showhouses in Manhattan, Connecticut, Westchester County, Brooklyn, Long Island, San Francisco, London, and, of course, the Hamptons. The largest so far, in San Francisco, counted 75 designers participating in the showhouse opening of the largest Ronald McDonald House in the world. ■ work, from sourcing the home and drawing up contracts, securing permitting for parking and tours, inviting 25 or more designers to participate, signing up sponsors, organizing events, publicizing in print, digital, and social media, completing photography and filming, and finally publishing the finished house.
■ But it’s a labor of love, because we passionately believe in showcasing the work of the design industry while contributing to important community causes. I can’t think of another milieu that affords designers such unfettered license to display and promote their talent. And the collaboration between designers and sponsors is fun and leads to long-term relationships.
■ This year, as always, the HC&G -sponsored Hampton Designer Showhouse benefits Stony Brook Southampton Hospital and can be toured over a six-week period from July 23 to September 3 at 499 Broadway in Southampton. A special thanks and kudos to builder Doug Cavallo of Cavallo Building for providing us with such a spectacular house. Check the schedule for open days at cottagesgardens.com/ HDS2023, bring some friends, and have fun!
Our company has sponsored and published dozens of showhouses, so many that we have created a brochure for design professionals and vendors who want to join in on the fun.

“We had thunderstorms each day, making it quite a dance to style the house’s indoor and outdoor areas,” Brooklyn-based photographer Lesley Unruh recalls of the shoot she undertook during stormy weather for this issue’s “Sweet Sanctuary” (page 68). But capturing “the casual luxury of Hamptons living that [design firm] Mabley Handler creates so beautifully,” she adds, was no challenge at all, especially given “the light, the fresh salt air, and the added bonus of going for a bike ride afterward.”
GRAY DAVIS AND WILL MEYER
The project featured in this issue’s “Seaside Aerie” (page 78), the handiwork of architect Robert Young and Manhattanbased design company Meyer Davis, “isn’t the typical Hamptons house,” says firm principal Gray Davis. “There is a refined casualness to it, and a certain West Coast sensibility.” His business partner, Will Meyer, adds, “To paraphrase Le Corbusier, this house is a machine for living in the Hamptons.”
AUSTIN HANDLER AND JENNIFER MABLEY
The principals of Mabley Handler Interior Design “have always laughed that clients get two decorators for the price of one!” says Jennifer Mabley, who with her husband, Austin Handler, masterminded the design scheme featured in this issue’s “Sweet Sanctuary” (page 68). “What’s not to love about working in the Hamptons?” Handler adds. “It’s a decorator’s dream.” —Shannon

Put a little Mediterranean flair into your Hamptons summer garden
There are hundreds of perennials that look like they’d thrive only in the hot dry climate of the Mediterranean, but many are workhorses in East End gardens, too. Often sporting soft gray leaves and striking flowers, they give standardissue hydrangeas a run for the money. —Alejandro
1. MEXICAN BUSH SAGE (Salvia leucantha)
Height: 2–3 feet; width: 2–3 feet
Fuzzy gray leaves throughout the season give way to bright purple racemes in late summer until the first frost. A favorite of butterflies and hummingbirds.
2. LAMB’S EARS (Stachys byzantina)
Height: up to 1½ feet; width: 1–1½ feet
Great as an edging plant, a small ground cover, or even in a pot, lamb’s ears boast velvety leaves that love full sun. Some gardeners prefer to remove the flowers, but the cottony pink-purple blooms add a bit of verticality.

3. STONECROP (Hylotelephium ‘Autumn Joy’)
Height: 1½–2 feet; width: 1½–2 feet
Small star-like flowers on these glaucous-leaved sedums start pink and then go red, finally turning a coppery tone in late fall. Keep the plant up during the cold months for winter interest, then cut it to the ground in early spring.
4. ADAM’S NEEDLE (Yucca filamentosa)
Height: 4–8 feet; width: 2–3 feet
Native to the central and eastern U.S., this yucca variety is now hardy well into New England. Its strong architectural shape and candelabra-like spike of creamy white flowers suggest a desert plant, but it’s quite at home on the East End.
5. ARCTIC WILLOW (Salix purpurea ‘Canyon Blue’)
Height: 4 feet; width: 4 feet
This willow shrub resembles a soft rosemary bush but is much less finicky and likes moist conditions, as most of its brethren do. Leave it by itself as a stand-alone plant or shear a swath of it into a lovely small hedge.
6. IRIS IMMORTALITY (Iris germanica ‘Immortality’)
Height: 2½ feet; width: 1 foot Germanica irises are twice the fun, blooming once in late spring and then again in September. Immortality’s flowers are an icy white with a slight bluish cast, which
complements their sword-like gray foliage.
7. BLUE SPRUCE SEDUM (Sedum ‘Blue Spruce’)
Height: 6–8 inches; width:
This standout small sedum’s bright yellow flowers attract pollinators in the summer. It makes an ideal evergreen ground cover, is drought tolerant, and looks nice in pots, too.
8. MULLEIN (Verbascum chaixii))
Height: 2–3 feet; width: 1½–2 feet
A rosette of felty leaves sends up spikes of yellow flowers in the summer. Once it finishes blooming, trim the flowers to encourage more blossoms, but leave a few stems at the end of the season so that seeds develop and you get new plants next year.
• Most plants featured here prefer dry conditions and require little irrigation.
• Leaves on many dry-weather plants often have gray shades and a fair amount of hairiness, which makes them unattractive to deer.
• A gray foliage garden can potentially look too gray, so be sure to choose plants that flower at different times to perk things up.
• If you prefer to experiment with annuals first, try dusty miller, Dichondra ‘Silver Falls’, and silver sage to see how their shimmery tones work for you.

Scents of a Woman
A Shelter Island perfumer explores the depths of experience and alchemy
Severyone, but they’re critical to Shelter Island–based perfumer Shannon Lords-Houghton. “The first scent I ever tried to make was a smoky-tobacco fragrance for my husband,” Lords-Houghton says. “I began by smelling differ ent kinds of tobacco oils and leather, and as I was making it, I was reminded of the pleasant and distinct smell of a pipe, which my dad used to smoke.”
The result, called Pipe, is now one of seven in her line of fragrances, bottled and packaged under the moniker 84.Shelter and sold at select shops throughout the East End. The collection is intentionally unisex, says Lords-Houghton, who adds that she has always gravitated toward masculine notes in perfumes: “My husband and I often find scents together and share them. I wanted to follow that vibe and create scents that anyone can wear.”
Lords-Houghton began her venture into the world of scents and perfume-making a year ago, setting up her “laboratory” in a charming freestanding studio space behind her Shelter Island home. Arrayed on top of a converted kitchen table/ desk are various beakers, funnels, pipettes, and a roll-on capping tool, all lined up neatly in a row, along with a book of scent formulas and notes. “I keep careful notes while I’m creating scents,” she says, “because you can easily lose your way, and then have to start over again.”
Lords-Houghton starts by experimenting with essential oils, sourced from a wide variety of vegetal matter that ranges from yuzu to piñon resin. She applies drops of these oils to paper test strips to assess “how they work together,” then “follows the rules” known to all perfumers to create base notes, heart notes, and top notes, “using a basic formula and percentages of each, before I start playing with and

adding oils. I make the formula for one bottle in a small beaker, stirring it and smelling it, and then I let it sit for a day or two, putting a drop on a strip and allowing it to percolate. Sometimes you nail it, most times not so much, and then you have to go back, adding more of one or less of what’s overwhelming or throwing everything off.” Lords-Houghton uses fractionated coconut oil as the base note, which is hypoallergenic and helps keep “everything as organic and clean as possible, which isn’t easy in the cosmetics industry.”
Once the formula is finished to her satisfaction, Lords-Houghton pours it through a stainless-steel funnel into 15-milliliter glass bottles and caps them with a roller-ball applicator. The diminutive bottle is “easy to travel with” and the roller ball allows the oil-based perfume to “go on your skin nicely and stay there longer.” After the bottles are capped, she adds a stamped wax seal emblazoned “84.S,” a nod to her address and her first name. “The seal brings more color and texture to the bottle than a flat label would,” says Lords-Houghton, whose most personal creation is a scent called Camp. “While I was growing up, my family vacationed in the mountains in Montana and had campfires at night. I remember the smell of the woods, the crunch of pine needles underfoot, and the lingering scent of smoke, and I wanted to evoke that memory.” The challenge of distilling an evocative concept into a concrete entity “is hard work,” she adds, “but when you find something that you were meant to be doing, it’s not difficult. I love every step of it.” —Doug

The Inside Scoop on East End Real Estate
McMansions and ultra-modern builds might be proliferating on the East End, but newer isn’t necessarily better. Consider these pedigreed stunners, steeped in history and possessing unique cachet. Dating from 1695, the Homestead at 264 Main Street in Southampton was part of the vast holdings of the Foster family, whose forebear, Christopher Foster, arrived on the East End in 1651 and began acquiring land, eventually amassing a huge fortune. The residence stayed in the family for eight generations until the early 1920s, when Edward Foster sold it to Pauline Davis (wife of Dwight Davis, the founder of the Davis Cup), who was instrumental in bringing Prohibition to an end. She eventually donated the home to the fledgling Southampton Colony Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution, which kept it until the late 1990s, when the Corcoran Group’s Pat Garrity sold it to its current owners. Twenty-eight years later, after a gut renovation and expansion, the 8,000-square-foot eight-bedroom dwelling is newly listed, again with Garrity, for $11.495 million.
Oldies But Goodies
Originally known as Greenridge Cottage, the compound at 397 Sagg Main Street in Sagaponack was built in 1899 by New York architecture firm James E. Ware & Sons for John G. Deshler.

guesthouses on more than four acres. Listed by John Healey of Saunders & Associates for $18.9 million, it also comes equipped with approvals and expansion plans by architect and builder Michael Davis for additional living space and a tennis court. Also in Sagaponack, the pre–Revolutionary War farmhouse at 700 Hedges Lane is on the market for the second time in 75 years. Originally built in the early 1750s and listed by Corcoran’s Michael Schultz for $9.95 million, the 5,000-square-foot home was renovated and expanded in 2005 and features five bedrooms, multiple wood-burning fireplaces,
a sleeping porch, and a pool. Bonus accessory structures include a teahouse and a 600-squarefoot barn converted into a pool house.

Designed and built in 1900 by architect Thomas Nash as part of the original Summer Colony and listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the eight-bedroom 10,000-squarefoot abode at 43 Lee Avenue, listed for $24.5 million, features parklike grounds, a pool and pool house, an outdoor kitchen, and two gated motor courts. At 117 Egypt Lane, the 18th-century
Gansett House (moved from Amagansett to East Hampton in 1930 by preservationist Mrs. Harry Hamlin) is a seven-bedroom property including a separate garage with an attached artist’s studio that can be converted into a home office or gym. The ask is $8.9 million. And, as previously reported in “Deeds & Don’ts,” Petrie also holds the $65 million listing for Cima del Mundo (Spanish for “top of the world”), a 1925 Spanish Colonial–style manse at 201 Lily Pond Lane. The 7,600-square-foot home comes with 400 feet of ocean frontage and commanding views of Georgica Beach. —Jean Nayar
BEFORE THEY WERE BROKERS:
As a television producer working for such networks as MTV, WNET-13, CNBC, and Fox News for 14 years, Patrick McLaughlin became accustomed to making quick decisions and managing personalities. “I got my real estate license while I was working for Sally Jessy Raphael’s show in New York,” says McLaughlin, a Douglas Elliman Real Estate agent who has lived on the East End full-time since 2004. “I really enjoyed looking for my own house, and [the career switch] happened pretty organically, since my years in television prepared me for highpressure situations.

WHAT’S UP, DOCKS?
Itching to dive in? The East End’s strict building laws make it nearly impossible for new waterfront construction to include docks, but they’re grandfathered in on several existing properties currently on the market. The eight-bedroom 2005 manse at 315 Rose Hill Road in Water Mill, listed for $37 million through Sam Kelly of Bespoke Real Estate, features a walking trail that leads to a dock on Mecox Bay, in addition to a pool and a Har-Tru tennis court. In North Haven, a renovated five-bedroom 1940s cape at 48 Forest Road, on the market for $19.95 million with Christopher Covert of the Modlin Group, comes with 200 feet of sandy beach and
a 240-foot dock. A short boat ride away, on just over an acre at 26–30 Short Beach Road, a twoparcel lot offers a private dock on Polles Creek in addition to unspoiled views of Noyack Bay, Shelter Island, and the North Fork. The property, comprising a fourbedroom main house and a three-bedroom guesthouse, is listed for $8.5 million with Brenda Giufurta of Douglas Elliman Real Estate. In Southampton, Meadow Lane is justly famous for its stunning location on a narrow strip of land
between the Atlantic Ocean and Shinnecock Bay. The 15,000-square-foot Tudor dubbed Mylestone, listed price on request with Cody Vichinsky of Bespoke Real Estate, seems to have every bell and whistle imaginable, including a deepwater bayside dock. —Pamela Brill
Nestled amid 3.4 acres at 1730 Meadow Lane in Southampton, this 8,600-square-foot shinglestyle house holds a coveted spot between the ocean and Shinnecock Bay. Originally constructed in 1989 and extensively rebuilt in 2013 by John Hummel & Associates, the seven-bedroom residence has been transformed by interior designer David Netto, whose interventions include whitewashed pecky cypress woodwork, an updated fireplace with a Venetian-plaster chimney breast and limestone mantel, and a custom Gio Ponti−inspired tiled backsplash in the chef’s kitchen. “The house,” Netto explains, “needed some charisma and individuality.” But perhaps most important, adds the Modlin Group’s Christopher Covert, who holds the $44.95 million listing, “the dunes along the beach are actually growing as opposed to eroding, bringing peace of mind to homeowners living on the water’s edge.” —J.

On Shelter Island, the onetime staff quarters for a historic hotel puts on a stunning second act

lmost 150 years ago, the quiet Shelter Island enclave of Dering Harbor was a hive of social activity, anchored by the brand-new 500-room Manhanset House Hotel, which welcomed guests including J. P. Morgan, Will Rogers, and John Philip Sousa. By 1888, resort developers Washburne, Beale, and Co. constructed three nearly identical homes nearby to house staff, all of which are still extant today. One of these, Eastgate, caught the eye of Samuel Ashner when he was looking for his own East End abode three years ago.
“I wanted something relaxing and not fast-paced, more akin to Cove Neck on the North Shore of Long Island, where I grew up,” says Ashner, who is a managing director for a private equity firm. “I couldn’t find anything that spoke to me, and then I discovered this house on Zillow. My real
Aestate agent said, ‘You know, you’ll have to take a ferry to get there.’ And as soon as I saw it, I said, ‘I’m buying this house.’” Dering Harbor is the smallest village in New York State (16 full-time residents) and Cove Neck the second smallest, so Ashner felt right at home. “You slow down when you get on the ferry, and you slow down even more when you walk into the house. I don’t even own a microwave because I don’t want fast cooking!”
The Manhanset House Hotel burned down in 1896, was rebuilt, and then burned down again in 1910, after which Eastgate became staff housing for the subsequent Manhanset Country Club. According to historical records, it was “used and abused by employees and left vacant in 1916 because of the damage.” (Think original Hamptons share house.) A year later, Charles Lane Poor purchased

the house and by 1932 had commissioned his son Alfred Easton Poor to remodel it, altering its façade from lateVictorian to Greek Revival.
Ashner has reimagined Eastgate as a timeless getaway for family and friends, an ample and commodious retreat nestled in a bucolic setting featuring rolling green lawns, gardens lush with hydrangeas and peonies, a large swimming pool, and even a rope swing hanging from a centuries-old tree. “I wanted the house to be very comfortable but also somewhat formal,” he says. “It’s attractive, and at the same time I like to think I can still drink red wine and keep my shoes on.” A thoughtful host and engaging entertainer,
Ashner knew that versatility would be key to the interior design scheme, and today his dining room can morph from lunch for two to a sit-down dinner for 14, along with extra seating outdoors for a blowout family birthday party.
Ashner had met interior decorators Tom Samet and Nathan Wold of Hamptons House Design through mutual friends and knew that they were the ideal choice to pull off the decorating feats he had envisioned. Samet had thoughtfully suggested completing the renovation and decor in three stages, but Ashner, a get-it-done type of guy, was champing at the bit. “The day we closed,” he says, “we had a whole crew here getting to work.” Structurally, the house

had great bones and the aura of a multigenerational family compound in Kennebunkport, but Ashner arrived emptyhanded. “I had nothing except some art,” he recounts. “The great thing about working with Tom and Nathan is their knowledge and instinct and ability to work from scratch. I told them very little, just ‘No purple’ and ‘Don’t show me more than three options, because I can’t process it.’”
Vintage became the name of the game: Something old, borrowed, or blue was okay, but nothing new. This was music to Samet’s ears, since the designer has a penchant for finding what he calls “Rolls-Royce furniture in need of a little love.” His timeless, classic sensibility, fine-tuned by his work on projects in such locales as Locust Valley and Palm Beach, is on full display here, from the butler’s bar to the top-floor guest rooms. He and Wold, he reports, “bought well at secondhand stores and rebuilt parts of the home so that they have the same old quality but feel fresh and new.” The living room sofa and chairs were even sourced from Ashner’s old neighbor’s house in Cove Neck and now have two sets of custom slipcovers, one for summer and the other for winter—a “Southern trick,” Samet says. Other choice pieces include a chinoiserie bureau in the entryway (bought from the Animal Rescue Fund’s salvage store), mirrors from an estate sale on Further Lane, and custom lamps made from old Spanish vases that Ashner “prays no one bumps into.” Wold customized the 1970s green pendants that hang in the kitchen, where Ashner, an avid cook, spends much of his time. Bold gestures come by way of the dining room’s vibrant green-and-white Scalamandré wallpaper (a nod to the property’s abundant hydrangeas) and a colorful stair runner handwoven in India.
“Nathan and I are big on scale,” Samet reflects. “There’s nothing here that couldn’t fit into another home, but we hope Sam stays forever.” Eastgate could very well be Ashner’s forever house, a place where each of the guest rooms features a bottle of water and a vintage typewriter from his substantial collection, at the ready should one wish to bang out a novel. It’s a fitting gesture for a home steeped in history, and poised for more storytelling as time goes on. ✹

A pair of Quogue gallerists turn their new home into a stunning showcase

With A View Architect Stuart Disston of Austin Patterson Disston Architecture & Design sited the house to maximize vistas of a pond and protected wetlands. See Resources.
hen gallerists and art collectors Christy and Chester Murray, who specialize in figurative and Abstract Expressionist painters, were building their new home in Quogue, they knew that highlighting their art collection was the most important directive. Accordingly, the Quogue Gallery founders insisted on two crucial components: high ceilings and white walls. “Our passion for art is never-ending,” Christy says, “and we have found that white walls consistently work as our go-to palette.”
After she and her husband commissioned architect Stuart Disston to design the home, Christy took on its decoration, devising a plan that called for multiple shades of white: on the walls, in the rugs, and in the upholstery fabrics on the (mostly)
Wcustom furnishings. As the natural light works its way through the house every day, she comments, “White is ever-changing.” The couple and Disston have collaborated before. A decade ago, Chester recounts, Disston proposed that they establish an art gallery in the same village building that houses his architectural practice, Austin Patterson Disston Architecture & Design. And then a few years later, as the Murrays embarked on a search for the right locale for their new house, Christy describes having “an unexpected inhale and exhale” moment when she and Chester first saw the property with views of a pond and protected wetlands busy with egrets, blue herons, ducks, and osprey. “We knew immediately that Stuart would design a home embracing this serene, natural habitat,” she says.
Disston, who has previously worked with the couple on other projects, not only fashioned soaring 12-foot-high rooms appropriate for accommodating artwork (even the hood over the stove serves as “wall space” for art), but he also

incorporated a stunning architectural statement: an arresting suspended bridge that spans the front entry, which is set with old cobblestones. “The bridge bifurcates the primary wing from the rest of the house,” Disston says, adding that “there’s a lot of character here that reflects the homeowners. Good clients understand what they’re asking for because they know how they want to live.”
Throughout the home, close attention to structure is immediately evident: Thick beams line the ceiling in the open kitchen and living room, while multipaned French doors, windows, and clerestories cast shadows that further emphasize the architecture, fostering, as Christy says, a sense of “understated drama.” Views of myrtle and sculpted pathways from the kitchen window, she adds, suggest “a Matisse cut-out.”
The home’s prevailing white palette is unassuming, yet impactful, with texture playing an important role in the furnishings and accessories. “Texture catches light, casting subtle
shadows and changes in a room,” says Christy, pointing to patinated-iron side tables, artifacts and sculptural items on consoles and coffee tables, and the “woven” metal armatures of dining chairs. “And the color white has many different faces and personalities. It allows forms and lines to emerge.”
The rooms have been arranged so that every work of art the couple chooses to display—be it on canvas, paper, or plinth—stands out in full relief. Throughout, Christy has created vignettes that are art assemblages in themselves: a pair of framed Le Corbusier lithographs beside a sinuous settee, ledges that double as display areas, sculptural pieces whose forms echo the consoles and tables on which they rest. While many of the furnishings are new, Christy emphasizes, “We also have the good fortune of owning items collected from our travels and, of course, heirloom pieces that have been handed down. These are our most cherished artifacts—the authentic, grounding elements in any room.” ✹

Mabley Handler Interior Design reinvents a large build in Bridgehampton for comfort and contemporary living
BY MICHAEL LASSELL PHOTOGRAPHS BY LESLEY UNRUH
Renovating a 10,000-square-foot house at the height of a global pandemic would have been risky even if the schedule had not been, well, ambitious. New owners bought this 10-bedroom home in Bridgehampton in the late summer of 2020, when most of the world was in various degrees of panicked isolation. The parents of three small children, the New York City residents wanted their summer home to be turnkey by July 4, 2021. They chose Water Mill–based Mabley Handler Interior Design to get the job done.
Founded in 2002, when Jennifer Mabley and her husband, Austin Handler, moved to the East End to raise a family,
the company has become a leader in defining easy, breezy Hamptons style, a credit to Mabley’s already long career as a decorator in Manhattan, Long Island, and Palm Beach and Handler’s earlier experience and finely honed eye as a graphic designer and photographer. Pooling their talents 20-plus years ago was a gamble that paid off. Lately, the pair has expanded their sophisticated, yet beachy worldview to satellite offices in Manhattan and Palm Beach, and now their grown sons are in college and high school.
When Mabley Handler took on the project, it was not meant to be a large-scale renovation, although it became one as they started to make alterations and adjustments. Taking

its design cues from the classic shingle-style “cottages” of the Arts and Crafts era, the house “was beautiful, with gracefully sweeping rooflines,” Mabley comments. “But there were dated finishes, the windows needed attention, and our clients’ tastes are more modern.”
So work began, indoors and out. The design team reconfigured the interiors and installed new, sometimes larger windows throughout. All the fireplace surrounds were resurfaced, and coffered ceilings in some rooms were covered to create simpler lines. The exterior living room wall was replaced to accommodate a motorized sliding door system. And eventually a new pool was installed, along with an ample
pool house and tennis court. In other words, as each task was completed, new tasks arose.
“The step from agreeing on new flooring to deciding the bathroom needs gutting can be a very small one,” Mabley says. New clients, Handler adds, “are often very certain about what they want, but sometimes the target evolves as you work. It became clear to Jennifer and me that these clients weren’t looking for a quick renovation, but a total reimagining of the property so that it would fit the needs of their growing family.” In the end, Mabley says, “We touched just about everything, even the garden, hardscaping included.”
The interior decor merges diverse worlds, from the mod-

“At one point,” Mabley recounts, “we had to cancel all our outstanding upholstery orders” because vendors kept add-
ing weeks to the delivery dates. “Every time we ran into an issue, we’d go to the clients to ask if they wanted to wait or to find available alternatives, and because of the pandemic, we couldn’t stay married to any of our design choices. We had to be flexible and ready to improvise, which was exciting to me. Ultimately, we decided to customize a lot of pieces, and everyone worked well into the night for a week in time for the scheduled completion date. But we made it, down to the last flower in the garden.” ✹

As the East End’s die-hard surfers know, the waves off Montauk crest high enough for a great ride, but none reach as high as the 40-foot bluff on which the home featured on these pages sits. “Figuring out how to maximize views from the site while also connecting the house to its challenging locale became the rallying cry of this project,” says its architect, Robert Young, who fashioned a three-story house that allows for direct access to flat land from each floor.
The process of building the five-bedroom residence involved leveling a portion of the hill while scooping out other parts of it so that rooms could be tucked into the hollows. What resulted is a classic “upside down” house, with an expansive open-plan family/living/kitchen area on the first level and sleeping quarters on the lower two floors. “From the driveway, it looks like a small one-story house,” Young comments, “but a wonderful surprise unfolds the moment you enter, taking in the views outside from the staircase leading down to the bedrooms.” The architect positioned an open-tread stairway—fitted with a glass baluster that lets in light—against a raw concrete

wall, creating what he calls “a beauty-and-the-beast effect. It’s a very modern house with a very human quality.”
Fortunately, Young’s clients knew what they wanted from the start, beginning with the architect’s site-sensitive design. As for the interiors, “Their requests were clear: They needed to be well edited, with furnishings that would connect to the modern architecture,” says Gray Davis, who with Will Meyer runs the Manhattan-based design firm Meyer Davis. (The clients had stayed at the Meyer Davis–designed 1 Hotel South Beach in Miami and made the call soon afterward.)
“We responded by sticking to a very muted palette,” adds Katie McPherson, the company’s associate principal, director, “although we knew they also love splashes of bright color.”
Big moments of color—from the ocean, the sun, and the sky—are omnipresent and unchangeable, since the “natural light of the setting creates dramatically different theatrical experiences inside the house from season to season,” McPherson notes. But the Meyer Davis team introduced “smaller moments” throughout, including, in the entryway, a Fernando Mastrangelo mirror partially coated with the artisan’s trademark pigmented dyed sand. “Its vibrant hues,” McPherson comments, “reference the fields of wildflowers you pass on the drive east from the city.”

The home’s prevailing shade is white, which “really only becomes white when it reflects and complements other colors,” Meyer opines. “White is the ultimate color because of its ability to do what it does.” The designers are so taken with the hue that Davis devised a work of art on canvas using white plaster as the medium, essentially creating a three-dimensional monochromatic painting that hangs in the living room. Playing foil to it nearby is a hulking blackened-steel chimney that hovers above a cast-concrete fireplace, taking on the presence of minimalist sculpture. “We spent a lot of time getting the scale of the flue right,” Davis recounts. “It needed to be positioned so as not to block views outside or overwhelm anything else in the room.” Adds Meyer, “Like everything we do, we edited it down to its simplest form.”
Along with views of the ocean, the house looks over the pool, so it was essential to camouflage the adjacent pool pavilion’s roof. Landscape architect Steven Yavanian and landscape contractor James Grimes planted a green roof garden of flowers and grasses, a fitting complement to the interior’s whimsical pair of oversize pendants wrapped in seagrass. Something more serious simply would have seemed out of place here, given that on this project, nature has always had the last word. ✹
