The Mullet House

They say that there is only a finite number of real stories in the world and new meets old is one of them. Traditional design elements bring a grounding effect to a home while many people want to follow the latest and greatest trend. In 2008, Hamptons Cottages and Gardens Magazine brought us their latest idea house in Sagaponack, New York.
This home was originally a 3,000 square foot farmhouse built 150 years ago. This home was very traditional, however in its 2008 facelift the traditional facade was given a modern addition. Can you say business in the front and party in the back?
I apologize for the poor quality of some of these pictures but HC&G does not seem to understand the phrase "share with others."
I'm a front porch kind of guy; it's just nice to be sociable out doors.
I seem to have played down my floor plan obsession on here, but rest assured that more are sure to come!

I can just imagine receiving people in this home and just throwing open all the doors of the great room and just having people trickle in and out as they please. This house will always be easily connected with the outdoors with the expanses of glass and sliding doors. Anyone up for a Hamptons road trip yet?
