Property of the week: a converted farmhouse in Water Mill, New York

Barn life in the Hamptons

This converted farmhouse is a throwback to the agricultural architecture of Water Mill – a hamlet in the Hamptons that was home to the first ever watermill in New York.

Built in the mid 19th century, the farmhouse is now part of a 1.2-acre plot of land that comes with a barn and three-car garage.

Interior designer Nannette Brown was tasked with kitting out the three-bedroom property, including a master bedroom featuring a wall covered with portraits of British royalty.

Meanwhile, the wooden barn – which retains its original details such as stone flooring – can serve as a guest house or entertainment space that spills out onto the garden and swimming pool. Vaulted ceilings give the rooms added depth.
