I’m not a designer, but I’m going to go out on a limb here and guess that being approached by a real estate developer in possession of a 12,600-square-foot, 11-bedroom, and 12-bathroom estate in Sagaponack would be massively intriguing. Were that designer to be propositioned with designing the entire operation, nary a client to compromise with, well, I’m guessing that would have to be right up there with as good as it gets.
Not that it could have been an easy task for the designer in question, Tamara Magel. Consider the twelve bathrooms, alone. Evidently, she persevered, successfully creating a lavish estate that is both timeless and sophisticated as it is rustic and relaxed.
Naturally (since it’s on this blog) it has a strong neutral palette that carries throughout. The white, polished vibe, potentially cold otherwise, becomes glacially serene when paired with rustic ceiling beams, sheepskin throws, and knitted poufs.
Here’s a peak at the place, a.k.a. here’s what $24 million buys you on a lot in Sagaponack. Oh, rarified Hamptons air, you do tempt us, so.
