Happy Fourth of July! Today we are back in the Hamptons touring the gorgeous home of Michael Giannelli and his husband Gregory Shano. On Friday, we toured Michael’s charming shop, East Hampton Gardens, and it just so happens that Gregory is a renowned interior designer. Located just five minutes from Michael’s shop, their home is quintessential Hamptons, All-American, and perfect for a July Fourth celebration!
Built in the 1930s, the couple renovated the cottage from top to bottom in 2012, working with Architect Martin Sosa of Arcologica Architecture and Builder Doug Cavallo.
“We wanted to keep with the style of the neighborhood which was local fishermen cottages,” said Gregory. A new roof was added with great care not to overpower or max out the roofline, and dormers were added to the attic which provided space for the primary suite and bath. A new kitchen was installed along with new windows, shingles, and a double height sunroom and back porch. “You name it, we did it!” he said.
Let’s take a look inside!
