Rand Luxury and Aston Martin hosted a private lunch at a beautiful Bridgehampton Estate, listed by Gary DePersia. We stopped by to check it out.
Understand, Hamptons is to New York City as Deauville is to Paris. But in the Hamptons, the idea of “brunch” is regarded with special reverence, a commitment to a unique sense of confident leisure, secure exclusivity, a feeling of curated carefreeness. Of course, the best brunches are sited perfectly, a lawn, a poolside, a terrace, a lanai. The food is important, too. It is the grease that gets the gears moving, the conversation rolling. Everything about brunch is about pleasure.
Rand Luxury touched on all of these points, making for a memorable and luxurious brunch on a Saturday afternoon. First, of course, location. The estate is a stunning $9.95 million spread that is designed for entertainment, down to the elevated lawn to accommodate sea views and an infinity pool. That’s not to ignore the classic Hamptons look of the structure, with large windows and clapboard siding and a variety of seating areas. Listing agent Gary DePersia lead private tours around the large (11,000 sq ft; eight bedrooms) but comfortable (on two acres) home, helping guests envision a future of Hamptons memories.
Food was provided in part by New York Prime Beef Co, filling and wonderful cuts that went nicely with champagne or Black Button Distilled cocktails. Guests wandered between Aston Martin automobiles and the lawn, exploring a variety of luxury goods and services providers, including Cayman Islands tourism, Dretmann yacht builders, LG electronics and even a custom guitar maker, D’Angelico guitars. A silent auction also took place, providing an opportunity to give back to the Lustgarten Foundation for Pancreatic Cancer.
Guests such as CEO of Cantor Fitzgerald, Haward Lutnick, fashion designer of Robert Graham, Robert Stock, and entertainment lawyer Jason Boyarski joined CEO of Rand Luxury, Bradford Rand, and media sponsor Hamptons magazine for a truly perfect brunch.
