Once upon a time, a young New York family bought a modern home in Southampton. They happily began to spend every summer there, putting down roots and making lots of summer memories. Several years and many storms later, the home started to show signs that a major renovation was in order — a flooded basement here and a leaky roof there. Contractors were called to inspect and when the verdict came in the house was not salvageable. Not ones to waiver in the face of a challenge, the couple decided to tear down their home and rebuild another one in its place. Read on to see how the home turned out.

The family hired Anthony Wright Interiors and architect Arthur Fraser Associates and a meeting was arranged to decide how to proceed. A plan began to take shape in the form of a double-axis corner house that would look as though it had always been there. This home would have strong influences of the early McKim, Mead and White houses that Southampton is famous for. Lots of porches and balconies were added with nooks and crannies for lazy days of lounging, reading, rocking and napping. There was a pool and pool house with a separate driveway and entrance for the purposely detached garage.

It took many more meetings to perfect the plans and many months of work to build it, but the home, Frog Hollow was finally completed in time for the summer’s festivities.

After saying goodbye to their clients, the design team was stopped by a couple of neighbors — who having forgotten that the previous house was a faux-Japanese modern house — commented that they were delighted that the house was finally restored to its full former glory.

    I really like the wallpaper in this home, especially in the bathroom. Any idea who designed it or who sells it?

      Hello Ben,
      The bathroom wallpaper is a customized mural from Stark Carpet.
      I added the pink feather flowers for some pizazz.
