A 100-year-old studio designed by famous architect Stanford White (whose design principles epitomized the American Renaissance) has been converted into a stunning 12,000 sq. ft. mansion, situated on over 1.9 acres of land in East Hampton, New York. The home is near the Nature Conservancy reserve, has a lakefront view and is south of the highway. It has a main house with a heated pool, a three-car garage and a two-story guesthouse.
Talking about the main house, the latter has seven bedrooms with attached bathrooms and seven antique fireplaces. The stone floors and tubs get radiant heating. The studio has now become the 30-foot-high living room of the new residence and the kitchen is equipped with professional-grade appliances. There’s also the the dining room, family room, media room and a guest suite on the first floor. Upstairs, you find the master bedroom with two walk-in closets and a den, and three more guest rooms. The third floor offers a large room with antique beams, fireplace and full bath.
That said, it will cost you an astronomical $28.9 million to acquire the home. East Hampton has been the playground for the rich for more than a century with the cost of living in this area 168 percent that of the national average.
