Celebrity Homes: Alec Baldwin Long Island Farmhouse – After years in the spotlight, the Baldwins find refuge inside an 18th-century farmhouse on Long Island, and they’ve invited Elle Decir in for a tour and now you can see it at Celebrity Homes.
The family spent much of the summer here, having put everything on hold after Hilaria Baldwin gave birth to Leonardo in September. For Alec Baldwin, East Hampton has been home since 1982, when he began renting in the area. He still votes here rather than in Manhattan. In 1995, he bought this farmhouse — Hilaria moved in after the couple started dating — which they gut renovated with the goal of transforming into a bright, modern family home.
The shingle-style house was built in 1753 with a saltbox design – long, pitched roof that slopes to the back – before its conversion to a full, two-story home in the 1790s, according to local historians. A team of oxen later moved the home to its current location, and around 1913, architect Joseph Greenleaf Thorp, of Grey Gardens fame, remodeled the home.
“Before, it was a lot of tiny little rooms, there wasn’t a lot of flow to it,” Hilaria explains, and so architect Fred Throo and interior designer Daniel Romanoff worked together to create “this really open space that I definitely wanted. I want to walk into my house and be able to breathe.” Everything about the house is perfect, she says, except for the crabgrass: “It’s Alec versus the crabgrass, every single year.”
The couple plans to renovate again next year, because their now one-month-old baby Leonardo will need more space – specifically, a room that’s precisely the same size as his two siblings’ rooms. “We want all of our kids to feel like they’re equal, so we’re going to make his room exactly the same square footage as theirs, so that he can’t say ‘I’m third, I’m last, you guys don’t care,'” Hilaria says, with a self-effacing laugh. “I’m very nervous about any complex my kids might have!”
