Captain Overton House

04 . 04 . 16

One of my readers emailed me this weekend to ask if I had seen the house in Sag Harbor that Steven Gambrel just put up for sale. Sag Harbor is my favorite town in the Hamptons. The former fishing village is quaint, charming, walkable, and more down to earth than rest of the Hamptons. I actually looked […]

I didn’t even know Francisco Costa’s apartment was on the market before hearing that it had possibly already sold. The space designed by Mark Cunningham is located at 220 Madison Avenue near the Morgan Library. The location makes it convenient for both Francisco to get to work in the Fashion District and his partner John DeStefano, a horse […]

Andy Warhol Slept Here

06 . 26 . 15

Montauk has typically been the quieter area of the Hamptons due to its location on the very end of Long Island. That has started to change in recent years as people were priced out of other areas. Now finding anything reasonably priced in Montauk might be about to end as Andy Warhol’s old compound is put up […]

Those of you who can’t make it to New York to shop Housing Works Design on a Dime are in luck.  Chance Co. founder Julia Leach has curated a sale full of blue and white delights for One Kings Lane. You could actually furnish an entire beach house with her picks and I’ve chosen a […]

Bid on Bacall

01 . 26 . 15

In one of my pre-blizzard trips to the grocery store, I picked up an issue of People magazine. In the back, was an article on the upcoming sale of Lauren Bacall’s treasures at Bonhams auction house on March 31, 2015. It will include artwork, jewelry, and other pieces from her apartment in the fabled Dakota apartment […]

I happened to walk down East 71st Street between Lexington and Third Avenues a few days ago and noticed a new for sale sign at 169 East 71st Street.  This Upper East Side brownstone is best known as the building where Holly Golightly lives in the 1961 film Breakfast at Tiffany’s. The townhouse was split […]

The Sale of the Year

10 . 09 . 14

Even though it’s still October, everyone is breathless in anticipation for the Sotheby’s auction in November of the Property from the Collection of Mrs. Paul Mellon, otherwise known as Bunny Mellon.  Over 2,000 items will be up for sale from the Mellon residences which will benefit The Gerard B. Lambert Foundation, a charitable entity established by Mrs. Mellon in […]

I’m usually not a fan of new construction but I am quite impressed with the design of 224 Mulberry Street I saw on Curbed today. It was developed by Flank to complement the other buildings in the neighborhood and as though it were in a landmarked district.  Although, I’m sure most of the other buildings […]

Seeing as the US is headed into the July 4th holiday this weekend, I thought it would be fitting to get back to some American themed posts.  An email from Lonny recently alerted me to the fact that Katherine Hepburn’s former estate in Old Saybrook, Connecticut had come on the market again.  The 15 room […]

Thanks to a little tweet from Luxuo, I was alerted to the fact that French actress and style icon Catherine Deneuve is selling her house in Normandy, Chateau de Primard.  The 18th-century stunner an hour from Paris will set you back €3.9 Million ($5.5 Million) which seems like a bargain considering that it’s move in ready and […]

I walk down East 70th Street almost everyday which takes me past a very large townhouse with an imposing wall to keep out the prying eyes of the Upper East Side.  Thanks to Curbed, I now realize it belongs to Bunny Mellon and is on the market for a cool $46 Million via Sotheby’s International […]

Chic Christina

07 . 18 . 13

After a week of continuous 90+ degree days, I think a little yachting sounds like the perfect way to cool off. If you’ve got an extra $32.8 Million handy, you could be sailing around the Mediterranean with 35 of your closest friends on the Christina O, the yacht made famous by Jackie and Aristotle Onassis. […]

Hillcrest Hideaway

03 . 20 . 12

I don’t think it’s a secret that designer Kelly Wearstler‘s Hillcrest home in Los Angeles is on the market.  But I did come across more photos today thanks to a little story on Curbed.  They show more of the gardens and pool area than I’ve seen previously.  I know not all of you will love […]

Templeton

08 . 31 . 10

You never know where inspiration for a story will strike.  I was reading Page 6 yesterday and they mentioned that Cornelia Guest (above) is putting her ancestral home, Templeton, on the market again.  In case you don’t know, Cornelia’s mother was the chic style icon C.Z. Guest.  Templeton in Old Westbury on Long Island was […]

If you’ve got about $5.5 million lying around, this five story Brooklyn brownstone can be yours. It belongs to Charles and Olya Thompson and was featured in Vogue this past January. Olya’s a bit of an It Girl about town who hails from Russia while Charles is apparently a photographer. They lovingly restored this home […]

For Sale

05 . 19 . 09

Who knew a little walk down Madison Avenue Saturday would turn out to be so interesting. First, I saw Fran Lebowitz waiting outside the Carlyle Hotel. Then I noticed presidential interior designer Michael Smith and a friend climbing into a taxi in front of the Ralph Lauren mansion. And while walking by the Stribling Real […]
