Tucked away on Huntting Lane, the Elizabethan-style Woodhouse Playhouse in East Hampton Village is celebrating its 100th anniversary. Built by the philanthropist and arts patron Mary Woodhouse, the current homeowners continue the legacy of Mrs. Woodhouse through year-round music and theater programs — honoring the playhouse’s original role as a theater and drama school.
Designed by Francis Burrell Hoffman Jr., a “gentleman’s architect,” who was at the forefront of the Village’s emergence as a premier summer colony, the Woodhouse Playhouse is of architectural significance. The current homeowners have made sensitive touches that preserve and enhance the house and lawn in the spirit of the playhouse’s history. Noteworthy is the 75-foot-long Great Room, with a 30-foot gabled peak and church-like nave, an Aeolian-Skinner organ and massive fireplace. It's easy to imagine the famous visitors that have tarried thereincluding John Drew, John Barrymore, Isadora Duncan, The Westminster Choir, and Metropolitan Opera greats, among others.

Stucco, stone, and timber elements  the vernacular of some East Hampton houses built during the early 20th-century  are expertly integrated in this charming cottage nestled on a quiet street in the Village. The interiors are decidedly French inflected, with hand-finished plaster walls, antique limestone floors and mantels, period paneling, and a magnifique La Cornue range  while the exterior is reminiscent of an English cottage, with intricate stonework and a swooping shingled roof.
In collaboration, the Sag Harbor Architectural firm Beeton & Company and interior designer Sue Alefantis, masterfully designed every detail of this house to be functional, as well as warm and intimate  a priority of the homeowner. In addition, the house was designed to work in conjunction with garden spaces. Michael Derrig, owner of Landscape Details, collaborated in the design of garden spaces that function as outdoor rooms, fireplaces, and seating areas.
