Steve Gold has seen his share of high-end Hamptons real estate loaded with all the modern bells and whistles. But when it came time to find a getaway to call his own, the Million Dollar Listing New York broker knew just what he didn’t want — a new build devoid of character. Instead he landed on a 4,000-square-foot historic century-old home once part of an arts colony. Now he’s showing it off to Architectural Digest.
“I remember I first saw it online, when I was in Mykonos,” Steve told AD. “The day I got back, I drove out there, I saw the house, I made an offer that day, and that was it.”
Steve spent a few years renovating his Hamptons property with the help of designer Sam Amoia, being sure to incorporate the home’s existing features, wood beamed ceilings, fireplace mantels and leaded glass windows. The result is the ultimate hideaway that doesn’t crimp on luxe one bit.
“Every time I walk in, I love every room and all the choices that we made for it,” he says.
The open-plan kitchen features cabinets painted Benjamin Moore Yorktown Green, which complements the home's historic details. The countertops are oiled walnut and the island is topped with Bianco Venato marble.
The house gives Steve a place to show off his extensive art and antiques collection, as he does here in the master bedroom. “I started investing in or buying art before I even had a place to hang it,” he told AD.
Being a summer getaway, Steve had to include a pool. It comes with its own pool house, which he moved from a neighboring property as it was slated for demolition.
