The gorgeous architecture wnf Bedell Cellars’ tasting room and its adorable three-bedroom guest cottage were featured in a recent article of the New York Post’s luxury lifestyle supplement, “Alexa.”
The story, which was also published on nypost.com, recounts how owners Michael Lynne, a film mogul, and his wife, Ninah, renovated a crumbling potato barn and turned an 18th century barn into a stylish guest house.
“They followed their previous design maxim, preserving exterior elements and expressing themselves via the interior, selecting, for example, a dining table that combines a modern-design classic — a base by Isamu Noguchi — with a tabletop constructed using salvaged beams from the original barn,” writer Mark Ellwood said of the latter structure. “And while they briefly weighed removing a rotten wooden staircase that snaked through the center of the house, they couldn’t bring themselves to raze it.”
Although Lynne, the former CEO of New Line Cinema, owns properties in New York, Sag Harbor and Miami, he said the Cutchogue retreat is one of his favorites.
“Lunch there, on a beautiful summer day, is the most beautiful thing you can do within two hours of New York City,” he told the magazine.
The story also mentions the North Fork’s rich terroir and the works of artists Chuck Close, Barbara Kruger and Mickalene Thomas, all of which have appeared on Bedell’s labels.
