If you guys have been following along for a while now, you know I have a *mild* obsession with the work of New York-based interior designer Steven Gambrel, and this stunner Sag Harbor Victorian that he completely renovated and redesigned is no exception. Gambrel has an unmatched eye for detail and it’s beautifully displayed in this beauty (which is currently for sale for a cool $13.5 million). What I find most impressive about his renovations is that he always does such an incredible job preserving the architectural integrity from the past while adding in modern touches like beautiful unlacquered brass hardware, Dutch doors, his signature tone-on-tone color palette and lots of marble, glass and wood. As much as I love the interiors of this beautiful home, which was once the “Summer White House” for President Chester A. Arthur, it’s the exterior and grounds that make such a breathtaking first impression. Simple white painted clapboard, boxwood, a privet hedge and a gunite pool with a slate surround is just about as perfect as it gets, and the pea gravel off the patio is such a charming touch:

Inside, pale grays, taupes and powder blues evoke sea and sand and a subtle nautical vibe, which is only fitting, considering Sag Harbor is chock full of former sea captain’s cottages, many of which Gambrel has renovated himself. Banquet seating in the dining area that’s spacious enough to host all your family and friends, a bold black and white kitchen, built-in beds and an incredible master bath are among some of my favorite features of the house:
