I'm usually not a big fan of the Queen Anne style--a little too fussy for me, but this beautiful East Hampton home has a commanding presence that is softened by the delicate woodwork embellishments and porches, creating a perfectly picturesque summer home aesthetic.
The house was designed by Carnegie Hall architect, William B. Tuthill in 1891 on Lee Avenue in the estate section of East Hampton for Charles H. Adams. It was recently painstakingly restored, retaining its original splendor with 6 period fireplaces, glass leaded windows throughout, 14 bedrooms and a grand staircase with wood paneled walls in the foyer. Interiors have retained their historic charm, updated with a soft muted palette and furnished with an eclectic mix of traditional antiques and transitional pieces. The result--sublime beach chic!
