After enlisting the help of architect Maziar Behrooz (designer of the Arc House), Marnie McBryde (president and creative director of Hamptons Modern) transformed the ranch that originally resided on this one-acre property into what stands their now: A 3300 sq. ft., light-filled modern inspired by midcentury California architecture. Speaking to Hamptons about the project: "We wanted to add spaces to it that would be in contrast to the existing structure, not an extension of it. I wanted it to visibly be an addition like the old-fashioned rambling houses in the area that were added on to over many decades."
The home now boasts Bega brand lighting, a pair of fireplaces, mahogany framed windows as well as a mahogany deck, a high-end eat-in kitchen, and windows galore. So many windows, in fact, that one of the agents for the listing noted that, "Marnie had to apply to the town to get the largest amount of glass allowed because it was so different than most of the architecture in the area."
According to StreetEasy, Ms. McBryde dropped the price on her four-bedroom modern $45K waaaay back in April of 2010 and is still hoping $2.65M will get the job done.
