Behind the HedgesLaura Euler

We see a lot of bland cookie-cutter homes in our job, but that is certainly not the case in this extraordinary artist’s house in Montauk. It belongs to celebrity and fashion photographer and artist Raphael Mazzucco. Raphael has shot for Vogue and Sports Illustrated, and often hosts the odd supermodel out here. The house is covered with dozens of Mazzucco’s fine art pieces, hand-sculpted fireplaces and paint-speckled floors.
The 3500 square foot house was built with reclaimed wood throughout. There’s a large kitchen and an outdoor kitchen, both perfect for entertaining. More interesting tidbits: the sink in the master bath is made out of Arizona turquoise. Bedposts in the guest rooms are made from pilings salvaged from the old Montauk Yacht Club. Sunken stones are incorporated into the home, including bathrooms, and there’s a sauna equipped with infrared technology and an angular comfortable teak tub. Outdoors, the pool is near a lily pond; more stones are sunken into the earth to form a path that leads you from the waterside of the property to the top of the hill.
Let’s get down to specifics: the four-bedroom, four bath house is sited on one acre of land. Asking price for the property, represented by Dylan Eckardt of Nest Seekers, is $4.35 million. Will anyone pay that for such an extraordinary home? Time will tell.
