On Saturday, architecture and design enthusiasts will have a chance to peek inside five impressive private residences in East Hampton, N.Y.
The homes, which range from an 1853 Federal-style building to a starkly modern house with an arc-shaped roof by the architect Maziar Behrooz, will be open to the public for the 27th annual East Hampton House Tour, a fund-raiser for the East Hampton Historical Society.
Richard Barons, the group’s executive director, said, “I do believe, this year, that the committee has pulled together a particularly rich smorgasbord.”
Tickets are $65 in advance or $75 on Saturday. Admission to the opening-night cocktail party on Friday, which will be held in an 1891 Queen Anne-style home designed by the architect William B. Tuthill, starts at $150.
Information: (631) 324-6850 or easthamptonhistory.org.
