Our Weekend Escape

If you haven’t paid a visit to The Hampton Designer Showhouse in Sag Harbour yet, put it on your summer to-do list for August. The house, open through Monday, September 7, is filled with design ideas from interior designers nationwide, including Elissa Grayer Interior Design of Rye, NY, who designed a cheerful and colorful entryway around a painting by Yolanda Sanchez.
The home is bedecked in finishes from top names in décor like Circa Lighting, which is opening a new Greenwich, CT showroom in September. Tickets are $35. Hours are 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Proceeds benefit Southampton Hospital.

Sister Houses…


  • Larchmont “Sister Homes” Prove Two Is Better Than One

Larchmont “Sister Homes” Prove Two Is Better Than One

In 1912, vaudevillian Frederick Proctor built a duo of Dutch-style Colonial homes for his two daughters in Larchmont Manor. Over 100 years later, they’re both being offered for sale simultaneously.


Developed as a summer colony, the Westchester coastal neighborhood, with its storied yacht club and Frederick Law Olmsted-designed Manor Park, was as fashionable then as it was today. The Proctor sisters, and their sister houses, couldn’t have been in a better location.


Both 84 (left) and 88 (right) Park Avenue have been extensively renovated and modernized. While the exteriors remain mostly matching, a century’s time and contrasting decorating sensibilities of their respective owners reveal two vastly different interior styles.


88′s kitchen boasts a center island, concrete counters and Calacatta marble backsplash, along with appliances by Bosch, Sub Zero and Wolf. But 84 is on trend in its own right (see No. 2 on this Forbes list), opting for cabinet-free windowed walls and open shelving.


Both screen porches are as relaxing as they ever were.

The best parts of living in either home will never change.

A Hidden Gem

 Ever wonder what the Marshlands Conservancy in Rye is all about? Fellow agent Aimee Bester fills us in!

Located just off the Boston Post Road in Rye sits a 147-acre sanctuary known as the Marshlands Conservancy. Forest trails, a large meadow, a salt marsh and a piece of Long Island Sound shoreline can be enjoyed here. It’s hard to believe you are only minutes from town as you step out of your car and into the woods.


More than 300 species of birds have been found at The Marshlands.


Three miles of trail make for great walking or running.


A grassy trail borders the sunny meadow.


The trails lead to the Salt Marshes – a beautiful view!
