    i like it.
    i would change the sofa and armchair in the second picture and the dining room set which i don't like at all and i'd chuck the table and chairs in the little corner breakfast nook (vile) but once i was rid of the old people/boring/elle decor furniture, it's a nice house. i love the armchair in the library/loft in the 4th pic.

    i'm assuming that first bedroom only gets used in warmer months because the walls don't look insulated.

    Not doing much for me; I like the outside space though.

    For a weekend stay it would be nice. The bedroom ceilings are way too low for me though.

    Holy Shit! I absolutely LOVE what they have here. Damn I could live there. And they saved an old barn too!

    Weekend retreat? Hell I could easily live there. I like all of it-even the low ceilings are not that bad to me(I guess I am getting used to them).

    I like the 'old people' decor...telling isn't it...getting up there I am.

    *ok..I do not like the rug in front of the white and brown box chair in the last interior pic, and I do not like the twig chandelier in the nook..etc. etc. but those are minor details.

    And yeah, that one bedroom would not cut it in any area with a 'real' winter-but that is what insulation is for..could be fixed.

    I really really love this one!!!

    * is this "hamptons" as in Southhampton. Bridgehampton, etc. Long Island?--that place must cost a fucking fortune then and be surrounded by stuck up asshole rich fucks.

    Always a downside.

    Soj, my only fear with this beautiful place is that there seems to be very limited insulation in the home. The open ceilings, etc make me think it will be extremely cold in the winter months and unbearably hot in the summer.

    Yeah it would need some insulating. One good thing is that if you could afford this, you could afford huge heating and cooling bills too I suppose. And being by the ocean, it does not get that that cold there-I bet they rarely see anything lower than 20-and cool Ocean breezes must help in the summer.

    Love it! I could live without the wall of doors though.

    Most of the furniture is mediocre, with the exception of the first bed. The space is great, but as previously mentioned, uninsulated. It would be nice for a fall or spring time.

    I'm not sure about the wall of doors. I think the top one might go to a hayloft.

    I like it from the outside but inside is another story.

    This room is cool because of all the windows
