An estate worthy of the moniker Hamptons Chic. The house began as a builder spec home, and was ultimately gutted to make way for a spectacular space designed to entertain the Hampton's finest. The exterior is equally as impressive boasting a relocated pool, outdoor cabana, trellis with custom BBQ station, outdoor lounge area with custom food station, a bocce ball court, and foliage worthy of a botanical garden.See less
Sojo Design The clients wanted a Hampton beach house that was comfortable and accessible to everyone for entertaining, but also had intimate areas you could reside to.
Sojo Design This was a complete renovation of the interior and exterior. The master bedroom is downstairs and there are two wings separate from each other that have four guest suites. The downstairs has two more guest rooms. For the exterior, we moved the pool ten feet farther away from the house, put in a structural stone wall, a trellis and the cabana.

Sojo Design We did a lot of painted wainscoting. In the family room I used a chocolate paint from Benjamin Moore called “brown sugar” to create a cozy space. I stained the floor a walnut color and used calacatta gold throughout the master bathroom. In the kitchen we used brown marble and white cabinetry. The wine cellar is in cedar with a slate floor. For the exterior, the area around the pool is blue stone and the decking is all mahogany.
Sojo Design The original house had a lot of architectural details in the ceiling, so it was a matter of toning those down to make the space more modern looking. I eliminated a lot of the crown molding and things like that.

Sojo Design In the last year, I've noticed people seem to be more focused on comfort and functionality. For a while it was more about this modern minimalism where the furniture was low and there were a lot of interesting pieces that weren't necessarily comfortable. Now, they want the style, but the comfort and functionality are important too. They wanted something livable.
