Located in southeastern Suffolk County, the Red Dirt House is a black-painted summer residence renovated from a 1980s house, and designed for an Australian who living in New York City.
Inspiration from designer:
This simple A-framed house, circa 1980, had good bones. However, this gut renovation allowed for a redesign of each bedroom and bathroom in order to maximize the space by adding logic and simplicity. A large skylight was inserted along the ridge of the house flooding the living space and kitchen with light all day long.
Designer Amee Allsop choice the refreshing palette for this beach house to create a minimalist and clean space. The master bedroom is the essence of the whole house, white interior complemented with accents of black through the fixtures and lighting.
The basement was transformed from a dark and damp pool table room to an open plan bedroom/living space adjacent to a spacious bathroom with a view of the trees.
With 1.86 acre wooded property, the house connects the landscape and the indoor/outdoor living with the large wrap around deck had a distinctive Australian feel.
