Feature: See Inside the Polished Hamptons Home That Left Our Editors Speechless

Gabrielle Savoie

In the world of interior design, having complete free rein on a project with a seemingly endless budget is about as rare as a unicorn sighting. In the real world, constraints of space, time, money, and client requirements make most residential design feel more like a master class in project management than a masterpiece in creative expression. Many designers live in the hopes that this type of project will fall on their desk one morning. For Hamptons-based designer Tamara Magel, this wild fantasy arrived on a silver platter in 2015, with the proposition of a collaboration with real estate developer de la Motte Schult to design and furnish the interiors of a turnkey Sagaponack property—from the lighting fixtures to the flatware in the cupboards. Such is how the world operates in the U.S.'s most expensive zip code. 

Over a year and a half went into this labor of love that turned an empty lot on Sagaponack's desirable Hedges Lane into a 12,600-square-foot, 11-bedroom, and 12-bathroom estate. Other than the physical constraints of the house's structure, no client brief had to be accommodated. Needless to say, the world of residential interior design doesn't get much better: "We basically came up with everything from the kitchens to the bathrooms to even the silverware and plates," Magel told us. "Basically, it's a house that you can purchase and move right in for the summer—no work required." Got a spare $24 million sitting around? You'll want to tour this property before moving in because this house just hit the market. Take the tour!
