Behind the Privets : Historic Hampton Houses, Hardback Book


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 decor 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.
