Hamptons.com has the scoop on this year's Holiday House Tour, which is set for November 27, and some trespassing-worthy houses definitely made the cut. One of the real show-stoppers seems to be this Grace Estate home, which was picked up at a foreclosure auction in 2007 for $2.1 million. At the time of purchase, the property was just a "mere shell of a home," and required the help of builder Pat Trunzo to help give it a "Regency Villa" look. We love a good makeover! The home's "only available for touring during the" opening cocktail party (tickets here), so best to get in while you can.
Also on the list this year:
· An expansive cedar shake home on Hither Lane
· A "Queen Anne house that served as the Huntting Lane Rest Home"
· Two contemporary homes with well-known owners
· Shingle-style waterfront home in the Grace Estate
Each year, the East Hampton Historical Society tries to outdo itself by selecting an eclectic mix of homes, and this year is no exception. Sounds like a fun-filled day of real estate porn.
