House Overlooking Farmlands

What drew the owners to this flat three-acre property were its restful views of preserved farmland and its proximity to Bridgehampton beaches. Lacking in this dark and barnlike spec house from the 1980s was charm as well as ample light and space. By extending the rooflines, our design allowed for two strong gambrel volumes that make a classically elegant, symmetrical statement. We added spaces and interior detailing — light-filled sunroom, clean paneled rooms, French doors with transoms, coffered ceilings with bead-board insets — so that the 7,600 square-foot house is now open and airy.
