Hamptons Cottages & Gardens - September 2014

GALLERY In Sagaponack, Tamara Magel Displays Her Winning Ways Gallery

Even though this Sagaponack house is just steps from the ocean, you won’t find any sand on the kitchen floor. Or wet beach towels in a pile next to a screen door, or flip-flops by a hose. None of the scraps of summer can be found here, because this house isn’t a part-time beach escape, but rather a year-round, sophisticated home for a couple who came to the conclusion that weekends were just not enough.

For Designer Campion Platt, a Humble Bungalow on the Water Is the Key to Summertime Fun

Most people would guess that the home of an architect and interior designer is always the biggest and baddest on the block. Not so when it comes to Campion Platt. Nestled in a neighborhood of iron-gated fortresses in the heart of Water Mill, the waterfront bungalow that he shares with his wife, Tatiana, and their three children is anything but amped up. “We’re the last holdouts,” he says. “We’re like the Clampetts!”
