What happens when a legendary fashion editor and a painter collaborate with a noted Hamptons architect? You get this Contemporary home, which Vogue editor Candy Pratts Price and painter Chuck Price recently listed for $2.85 million.
Built in 2009, the Water Mill home was designed by local architect Michael Haverland.
"It really was custom-designed for them," says listing agent Jane Gill of Saunders and Associates. "They wanted to keep it very simple, have a pied-à-terre, a place they could get away."
All the rooms in the three-bedroom, 3 1/2-bathroom home face south and that, combined with walls of windows, fill it with natural light. The ceilings are 14 feet high, which makes the home seem much larger than 2,600 square feet. It is filled with high-end materials, including polished ebony concrete floors and a master suite with hand-painted Chinese silk murals, antique-mirror closet doors and a bathroom with a steam spa.
Gill says that for three years, while the house was being designed and constructed, the couple lived in a two-bedroom, 1880 cottage that was from the original estate and is still on the property, along with a pool and gardens.
