Holiday House Founder, Iris Dankner, has brought all sorts of fabulousness to the Hamptons. The spectacular home in Watermill was built by Architect Phil Rossillo. It has been enhanced, accentuated, accessorized and curated by 21 of the best Interior Design firms in the country.
The builder is John DeVito (important cause he’s all about quality, even the nails were polished) and the listing agent is Linda Haugevik, of Douglas Elliman Real Estate. (important cause Linda will sell this fab house before end of year – you heard it here first)
Together with HC&G, Holiday House Hamptons has become the first designer showhouse to benefit a breast cancer organization. Celebrating a third year in the Hamptons, #hhhamptons2016 and HC&G are showcasing chic summer living à la mode.
The site is located 90 miles from New York City, in the Hamptons area of Mecox Bay, Water Mill. This is an area known to be the highest point of Long Island and a very exclusive location. Check your manicure before you visit.
There are spectacular sunset water-views from both 1st and 2nd floor terrace spaces. On the top is an impressive tennis court designed and decorated by Icon Venus Williams. Not too many home owners can boast & toast that . . .
‘yes, Boo, Venus did it all – don’t you love the custom color?’
Just so you know the property also has a heated pool and large covered exterior patios. This unique property can never be replicated, because Iris Dankner said so. Special thanks to Alan Barry, Muggphoto, Gordon M. Grant and Phillip Ennis for allowing me to mix my photos with yours.

Looks like we are back at that rooftop tennis court. Buyers of luxury estates in the Hamptons consider a tennis court ‘a must-have.’ In order to provide a desirable tennis court—without having to sacrifice on the yard, Architect Phil Rossillo placed the tennis court on the roof. You can pose for pictures or actually play tennis.
