Behind the Privets in the HamptonsBehind the Privets in the Hamptons

For every lavish, state-of-the-art, over-the-top home under construction
in the Hamptons, there is an equally compelling, culturally significant
home that has been restored and maintained its original designs. This
fascinating glimpse inside these classic homes aims to capture the
illustrious architecture and design of the Hamptons historic houses.
Accompanied by architectural photographer Stanley Rumbough and Hamptons
historian Richard Barons, readers are invited "over the privet hedges"
of dozens of homes that offer clues to the Hamptons' storied past. From
quaint, 18th-century cottages to the Sister Parish-style décor of
Hamptons legend Dina Merrill, the houses profiled here boast historical
significance and impeccable style. Heartfelt contributions from Hamptons
icons David Netto and Alec Baldwin recall a time before million-dollar
homes dominated the area's pristine beaches and lovely lanes.
