This East Hampton home listed for $1.599 million comes with a series of artist studios attached.
The barn-style home was built in 1983 by artist Nikki Wood. It was then purchased by artist Michael Knigin in 1996.
“It’s a classic barn-flavored house with gambrel lines to bring some big light into the main house,” says listing agent Simon Harrison, principal broker at Simon Harrison Real Estate Brokers. “It makes the full use of the light, with very high ceilings in the studios and the living room.”
Inside the 4,000-square-foot residence are five bedrooms and 3 1⁄2 baths. The five separate studios include a darkroom; a big-light, tall-ceiling space for large works, such as metal works or massive canvasses; a printmaking shop and a few smaller spaces. The home also includes a utility section in the basement for building.
“This home is ideal for a family of artists or a group of artists, and that’s largely what it’s been used for over time,” Harrison says.
The outside space is about an acre of landscaped property with an inground pool and pond.
