The following day, the East Hampton Historical Society hosted the 2018 House & Garden Tour, showcasing some of the finest examples of architecture in the Hamptons. From Sea to Bay and South-of-the-Highway, this year’s tour – comprised of five noteworthy homes & gardens – offered a one-time-only glimpse inside some of East Hampton’s most storied residences. With over 600 attendees, the East Hampton House & Garden Tour enjoyed the biggest attendance in their 34 year history.

“The House & Garden Tour is one of our most important fundraisers,” said Event Chairman Joseph Aversano, “and all proceeds will support the East Hampton Historical Society’s museums and programs.”

Architect Spotlight

James Merrell Architects 
From our perspective in the 21st century, all styles are historical. Even Modernism is now a century old. So, we are free to interpret, and interweave the minimal with the decorative to find new expressions for our own era. Our house celebrates this new design freedom. It brings a contemporary sensibility to the architectural covenants of this otherwise traditional neighborhood. Floor to ceiling glass on the ground floor, for instance, yields modern interior spaces. While above, divided windows sit comfortably in second floor dormers. And the style that results is both unique and timeless.
