East Hampton Cottage

Beach House by Patrick McGrath Design in East Hampton, NY

From Architectural Digest: "Reinaldo Leandro and Patrick McGrath weren’t looking for a weekend home when they spotted a for sale sign outside a shingled cottage in the quaint Hamptons hamlet the Springs. But given their shared line of work, how could the Manhattan couple resist a peek? Though the land itself was modest, “the house felt tucked-in and private,” recalls Leandro, an architect and cofounder of the AD100 firm Ashe Leandro. The residence had a 1930s look and feel, with excellent attention to detail, even though it had been built in 2000. “So there was central air,” notes McGrath, principal of his own design studio. They quickly purchased the property and set about renovating. As Leandro explains: “We’re both in the field, so we make decisions fast.”
