The April issue of Architectural Digest features a shingle-style Quogue home with an "action-packed roofline and a tower that seems lifted from a fairy tale."

The 12,000-square-foot's interior was done by Dessin' Penny Drue Baird, of Manhattan and Paris. She designed the Manhattan-based real estate developer's house in two parts -- a formal side and a casual side. "It's a challenge to make these houses warm up and not seem too big," Baird says.

On the formal side, the living room contains a Neoclassical-style limestone fireplace from France. On the casual side, there is a sofa in the family room with "luxurious, nubby fabric" and a pair of lamps "made of linked metal rings."
