Can’t Quite Put a Finger on It . . .
The exterior of a house -it’s facade- or the one facing the street, usually tells us its architectural style, and from that we can expect the interior to be styled in the same way. But there are houses that defy that norm, and there’s nothing wrong with that. The residents may have decided to change how the rooms look, having gotten tired of the old one. Or they may have gotten to like a new style. And it’s easier to do a revamp of the interior than to change the architectural style outside. More importantly, we spend more time inside the house than we do outside, so it makes sense to want to change its looks or update it. Some homeowners even make minor changes according to the season.
The house we are about to see may strike you as kind of reserved, aloof, and even strait-laced (that is, if it were a person). The muted color palette makes it appear a bit old-fashioned and predictable (in a good way). But wait till you open the door and see what’s inside. It will make you say that, indeed, looks can be deceiving. Actually, this house is up for sale at $1,595,000 and it’s located at 93 Schellinger Road, Amagansett, New York.

This 1870s farmhouse is charming and shabby-chic, from the painted floorboards, the fireplaces, the beamed ceiling, to the vintage cottage kitchen with open shelves. There are plenty of quirky nooks in the rambling space, which totals 1755 square feet in all.
