Celebrity Homes — One of the most famous Hollywood’s names, Alec Baldwin decides to flee the spotlight with his family. The renovated shingle-style house is the Baldwins’ bright and modern refuge from city life and Hollywood’s prying eyes. Elle Decor was invited for a tour and now you can see it at The Most Expensive Homes. Take a look!
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. Besides, the family spent much of the summer here, having put everything on hold after Hilaria Baldwin gave birth to Leonardo in September.
In 1995, he bought this farmhouse 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 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 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.”
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,” Hilaria says.
