Fashion designer Elie Tahari is known for styles that are at once innovative and livable. His comfortable yet chic three-bedroom residence in Sagaponack is a fitting place, then, for him to have enjoyed over the last decade.
The residence—a remodeled century-old barn sited on the crest of a 2.5-acre estate with tremendous views and 250 feet of direct ocean frontage—is offered along with approved architectural plans that will expand the home to approximately 10,000 square feet, with eight bedrooms, a spa, and additional entertaining areas.
The great room is the heart of the home. Its open floor plan—encompassing living, dining, and kitchen areas—has the feeling of an artist’s loft, filled with gorgeous natural light. A web of wood ceiling beams accents the airiness of the space, and a full wall of windows and roll-up glass doors overlook and open to the backyard and the beach beyond. The wall above the unique oversized fireplace accommodates a wide-screen television and includes full-size built-in speakers. The chef’s kitchen offers a sleek modern contrast, with professional-caliber stainless-steel appliances, modern fixtures, and cool marble countertops.
The master suite, which occupies the entire upper level of the home, benefits from pristine views of the ocean through an L-shaped bank of windows. Expanding the opportunities for serene seaside living is its private sun-drenched terrace.
The master bath combines a variety of colors and textures—mirror, marble, tile, and wood—in a spa-like space with an expansive modern sink and a soaking tub built into a windowed corner.
The grounds include an enticing 60-foot lap pool secluded by a privacy hedge and a basketball area. Surrounded by verdant lawn and steppingstones, a lengthy pergola creates a consummate space for living, dining, celebrating, and relaxing amid these stylish coveted surroundings.
