Photographer Raphael Mazzucco is selling his eclectic art-filled and personalized-to-the-max home in Montauk, NY, for $4.35 million.
“This house is a one-of-a-kind opportunity,” says listing agent Dylan Eckardt with Nest Seekers International. “Everything’s done to a T. Everything’s got meaning.”
The 3,500-square-foot contemporary is situated on a gated, one-acre lot on Kettle Hole Road, an exclusive street with only four houses. The multilevel home has rooftop views of Fort Pond Bay. With a little money and imagination, a new owner could add 2,000 feet to the top, Eckardt says.
The four-bedroom, four-bath home currently has the feel of a museum as it's filled with Mazzucco's artwork. The artwork can also be negotiated with the sale of the house.
The home features reclaimed wood throughout, a rock fireplace, and paint-spattered wood flooring. A family room overlooks the backyard pool, rolling hills, and towering hedges.
Other special touches include a master bath with cedar tub, sink made of turquoise, and open shower. Fascinating features include a secret bedroom behind a wall that slides open when you knock on a picture; music studio; and chicken coop filled with the “really expensive chickens” Mazzucco’s wife, Lisa, raises, Eckardt says.
Mazzucco bought the house about 14 years ago for $920,000, records show. Over the years the home has been filled with Victoria's Secret angels—Mazzucco shot the Victoria’s Secret coffee table book—and celebs such as actress Pamela Anderson and director Peter Weir.
Eckardt says the artist has “done all he can” to the property and is ready to move to a 13-acre Connecticut spread he recently bought.
Mazzucco’s photos have graced the cover of Sports Illustrated's swimsuit editions in 2006, 2008, and 2009. He’s also shot campaigns for Guess clothes, and played himself on an episode of HBO’s "Entourage."
