When life gets too hectic in the Big Apple, The Real Housewives of New York City's Erin Dana Lichy has the perfect Hamptons hideaway.

The real estate and interior design guru spent years renovating the 6,500-square-foot Sag Harbor home, transforming it from an outdated property with serious ‘90s vibes to a clean, modern oasis for friends and family.

“We took the funds we got from a flip we did in Bushwick to buy a depressed property that looked like sh-t before I renovated it,” Erin explained on the show. “It is now five bedrooms with a finished basement and seven bathrooms.”

With a light gray exterior, white trim and large windows, the exterior of the home is the perfect complement to its eastern Long Island setting.

Inside, the home is clean and modern, often incorporating a white color palette with pops of color brought in by the artwork on the walls. 

 “I can’t believe how big this house is, it just keeps opening up,” Housewife Jenna Lyons remarked after touring the home. 

The main floor is home to a large living room with a white couch, round wood coffee table, and floor to ceiling windows that look out onto the backyard, where there is a pool and firepit. But it isn’t the only place to sit back and relax.

“This used to be a bedroom but now it’s a TV room,” Erin told Jenna of another cozy spot, before heading into a white kitchen with light wood floors and large window.

While each bedroom has its own feel (her daughter’s room adorably has a pastel rainbow on one wall), Erin primarily stuck to neutrals for the bedding and wall colors, giving it a retreat-type feel.

Erin described the home to PEOPLE earlier this year as “definitely modern and feels a little beachy.”

The natural light that floods into nearly every room was also an essential element to bring in views from the “vibrant woods” encompassed in the two-acre property.

"It has a lot of richness, a lot of layers that add to the warmth that you would feel in a woodsy location," she said of how the outdoor backdrop influenced her design decisions. "I think it's really important — the design really needs to match the location."

The renovation allowed Erin to infuse her own personal touches into the Sag Harbor home, including “eclectic pieces” “punchiness” and “vibrancy,” but it isn’t her first crack at design. The successful real estate agent also runs her own interior design firm Homegirl

"I would have these clients that would try to sell their apartments for years and years and they wouldn't be able to because of how it was designed," she told E! News in February.  "I decided to start the business to help my clients use the funds in their renovation that would cater to future demographics."

Erin invited the ladies of RHONY out for a fall weekend to enjoy the picturesque property—but they weren’t exactly the perfect houseguests.

Shortly after arriving, the ladies complained about the lack of food — although Erin had a large caviar spread waiting for them — closet sizes, and the rooms they were assigned. 

“This closet is not going to work for me,” content creator Sai De Silva joked. “Do you have any living quarters that might be a little larger?” 

“No,” Erin quickly shot back.

As the women sat around the living room catching up, Sai complained she was “hangry” and Ubah Hassan took off to find Provisions, a natural food store in Sag Harbor, telling the driver “I’m crying because I’m so hungry.” 

Erin seemed baffled about why the women were expecting a more expansive spread. 

“Why would I feed you lunch at 4 p.m.? We’re going to dinner at 7 p.m.,” she told the show, adding that the women were “always complaining about food.” 

It seems the experience may have Erin re-thinking ever extending the invitation again. The Daily Dish caught up with Erin at a recent RHONY premiere event, where she said the ladies would have to agree to certain conditions before staying at the home again.

“I will invite them if they sign a, like a disclosure agreement before they come,” Erin said. 

When asked what the agreement would say, Erin replied “it would say accept what I give you.”
