Anthony Baratta Puts His Trademark Spin On a Classic Hamptons Beach House

Anthony Baratta Puts His Trademark Spin On a Classic Hamptons Beach House

When longtime clients of Anthony Baratta purchased property in the Hamptons for a summer vacation home, they immediately contacted the design dynamo to help them create a suitable manor for their large family. Working with architect Ernest Schieferstein, Baratta and his former partner William Diamond concocted an imposing home with two gambrel-roofed wings separated by ample public spaces.

Then the recession gave the listing a little nudge forward.

Garden Designer Hal Goldberg’s Guide to the East End’s Best Blossoms

Get Up to Speed on the Latest Happenings in Long Island’s Wine Country

In 2007, when Paumanok’s Massoud family heard that PlumpJack in Napa Valley was screw-capping its $100 Cabernet, they decided to put the screw to all their whites, investing in a $50,000 machine that is capable of both corking and capping bottles. “Capping keeps the wine quality purer and eliminates any worries about cork taint,” says Kareem Massoud, Paumanok’s winemaker. “Now we’re 90 percent screw-cap, and we let others use our machine.” Fellow wineries Martha Clara, McCall, Lieb, Bouké, Wölffer, Suhru, and T’Jara have all followed suit.
