Meet the Baldwins luxury escape from the city lifeTuesday 8 November 2016
Meet the amazing Baldwins luxury escape in an 18th-century farmhouse on Long Island and its outstanding interiors. The project was held by the designer Daniel Romanoff and builder Brian Mannix.
After years in the spotlight, the Baldwins find refuge inside an 18th-century farmhouse on Long Island. Alec bought this farmhouse in 1995 and Hilaria moved in after the couple started dating. Alec and Hilaria Baldwin decided then to transform this house into a bright, cozy and modern family home.
According to local historians, the shingle-style house was built in 1753 with a saltbox design, a long, pitched roof that slopes to the back. It was then coverted into a full, two-story home in 1790s.
According to Hilaria, the house used to be a lot of too many tiny little rooms, leaving no room to a lot of flow around the space. So the architect Fred Throo and the interior designer Daniel Romanoff worked together to create an open and wider space to allow kids to flow freely.
This newly renovated farmhouse in Amagansett, East Hampton, is a reflection of the couple’s shifting priorities, considering Alec’s particular decision to spend more time here and less time in Manhattan, working. Just like this house, which he’s called home since 1995, Alec has also been gradually transformed by Hilaria’s presence.
The hallway outside of Alec and Hilaria’s master bedroom recalls the home’s farmhouse-meets-transitional style with a recovered barn door and a chunky selenite chandelier.
In Hilaria’s office, there is a strong wood desk, again recalling the farmhouse natural environment, perfectly engaged with the prominent white from the rest of the decoration.
In baby Leonardo’s room, there is a delicious combination of pastel colors with sweet baby motifs. The furniture recalls the ancient years from the former farmhouse, but it looks totally modern in the room.
The media room maintained the original wood paneling to the house. Wingback chairs were carefully selected to offer a cozy corner for family movie nights.
