The makeover of a cottage owned by a top Hamptons real estate broker is featured in the June issue of Coastal Living.
The 930-square-foot Southampton guest cottage of Tim Davis, a senior managing director at The Corcoran Group, and his wife, Susan, was completely revamped. The once plain and drab cottage is now a charming blue-and-white cottage with a classic shingle-style, located in the Cedar Crest area of Southampton.
It’s the epitome of Hodgson kit architecture, but was in much need of some updates, according to the article.
Interior designer John Bjornen of Sag Harbor’s Bjornen Design added fresh white paint and new furnishings to instantly update the house. Bjornen also vaulted the ceilings and widened the room openings to make the house appear larger, the magazine reports.
The designer says that it’s less daunting for people to update the inside of their homes because the “renovation is more contained,” he says.
And how do the homeowners like their new cottage?
“It exceeded my expectations,” Davis raves.
This property now has two bedrooms, two baths and an extended deck. It overlooks Davis Creek and Peconic Bay.
