While there's no lack of chic hotels and picturesque B and B's in the Hamptons, there is surely room for one more, especially if that new resort is housed in a stately Greek Revival with a restaurant manned by uber chef and restaurateur Tom Colicchio.The long neglected Bulls Head Inn, a beautiful Greek Revival on Bridgehampton's Main Street, had been bought by a group of investors, and after extensive renovations, has been rechristened the Topping Rose House after the man who built it in 1842, Abraham Topping Rose.
The home, with its flat roof, cupola, pilasters and frieze band, was designed in a local version of the Greek Revival style, which was immensely popular throughout the country at the time. Behind the house is its barn, a two-story wood structure with a peaked-gable roof with a cupola perched on top. Painstaking renovations have brought the buildings up to modern standards while keeping as much intact from the original structures as possible. Portico's and porches which had been part of the original structure, have been restored as have the original windows and doors. A new stylish spa and a handful of cottages were added in the back of the property, leaving the front of the house unspoiled and simply stunning.  
 The rooms are beautifully appointed with a cosy mix of modern amenities and a fresh, classic decor. Muted grays and creams are married with colorful rugs-rustic wainscoting and bead boards bring a touch of East End glamour.
Seasonal American cooking will be the focus of Colicchio's menu's with fresh and local produce taking center stage.

The barn, party ready!

Wholly cow what a gorgeous place and I'm going to have to drag the husband out there this late summer if we can get a room. I love the architecture of the whole place and don't you love how much black shutters set it off...stunning!

What a beautiful place. I love to stay in hotels where there are so many design details to admire. The colour scheme with the muted greys and creams is lovely.

I have always adored this building. So glad it is getting a freshening. Wish the Champalimaud interiors were more classically elegant, with warmer touches and some antiques..
Great post and the barn is divine!
