The Most Gorgeously Designed Hamptons Home Rentals For 2024

If you don’t mind fast fashion with an Hermès-sized price tag, a high-design Hamptons summer rental is for you.

Ease and sophistication are the draw at 26 Harbor Drive, the five-bedroom, seven-bathroom, 6,300-square-foot home in Sag Harbor. It’s an elegant mélange of midcentury styles (largely French) from the 1940s through the 1970s, including wall-sized wood panels by an Italian architect that were purchased at the Paris flea market, and seating that looks like it was robbed from the Museum of Modern Art.

“It’s got a masculine feel,” says Jon Vaccari, a broker at Hedgerow Exclusive Properties, who owns the house. “But surprisingly every year, a strong, high-power female professional rents it.” It’s seeking $850,000 a year. Vaccari, who formerly worked as an interior designer — he owned a design store in New Orleans before relocating to Sag Harbor after Hurricane Katrina, is responsible for the home’s clean and cool ambience. “It’s a great house where you may be inside, but you feel like you’re outside,” he notes.

“We used the same stone inside the house as is in the courtyard, so it feels as if you’re still outside.

The entire window-wall rolls back, and in the summer, we leave that open, so the pool becomes part of the living room. It’s so nice to sit there with cocktails.” With so many design dabblers on the East End, there’s a haute design to suit every taste.
