Design Showcase /
Welcome to the home of our Spring/Summer 2016 Ad Campaign.
On a crisp morning in late January, the STARK crew ate breakfast at The Golden Pear, on Main Street in the village of Southampton. The sleepy goings-on of an off-season summer town swirled slowly about as we prepared for the upcoming photo shoot. Rugs were being delivered at nine-thirty, flowers at ten, and the photographer would arrive around the same time. Each of the ten rugs coming was a bona fide work of art, but the real star of this shoot would be the location – the crown jewel in a collective community of six mansions named “Olde Towne,” from award-winning design-build specialist Kean Development and decorated by AD 100 Design firm Ingrao Inc.
As we moved inside and began to set up, the team began guessing in hushed tones at the sticker price we found out later, everyone was low. The asking price was $45 million, and the behemoth structure clocked in somewhere around 24,000 square feet. Nearly a dozen bedrooms, two kitchens, a rooftop putting green, infinity edge pool, tennis court, screening room, bowling alley – put a large check mark next to all of those, and a lot more. There’s even a fireplace in one of the bathrooms.
Needless to say, we were pretty happy with the outcome. The selects from this shoot have now been featured in numerous issues of national and regional publications, including Architectural Digest, Elle Décor, and New England Home.
The study, living room, foyer certainly make statements, but the beauty and craftsmanship of this home is truly seen in every room.
