Ever watch The Tonight Show? At the risk of dating myself, I remember when it was hosted by Johnny Carson. When I was just a kid I used to sneak and stay up late, laughing at some of the skits he used to do. My favorite shows were the ones where they brought animals on. Funny memories!
I’m sure by now you’ve heard, the show’s most recent host, Jay Leno, is retiring and the new host starting on February 17th will be Jimmy Fallon. Jimmy currently hosts Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. Should be interesting to see how it goes. Are you looking forward to the change or will you be missing Jay?
Ummm, Johnny, Jay, Conan, Jay, Jimmy. Guess it’s obvious why Conan didn’t work out as the host–his name didn’t start with the letter, J.
I discovered recently that Jimmy Fallon has a beautiful old home in The Hamptons. It’s located in Sagaponack and is a farmhouse built in the 1800s.
So much charm…love the exterior!
It had me at double porches. I’m nothing if not predicatable, right?
Let’s go inside and take the tour!
The minute I saw the entry, I instantly thought of the light John and Sherry from the blog Young House Love added to their entry last summer. Click on their name to see their light and tell me if you think they are the same. Pretty cool, huh?
How do you like the black treads with the white risers and stained handrail? If/when I ever add hardwood flooring to my upstairs family/bonus room, I will want to remove the carpet going down the back staircase from that room. Since the treads are pine and the staircase is all one unit, I know I won’t be able to add new hardwood treads. I’ll most likely do a runner up the staircase and paint the treads–not sure what color, though. I wonder if the treads weren’t in great shape in this home and that’s why they painted them. What do you think? Do you like the look?
The Living Room…wonder what that is high up on the wall between the windows. Any ideas?
Beautiful kitchen…huge fridge! Notice the horse pictures on the left, you’ll see more horsey stuff as we continue the tour.
I really like this view of the kitchen. Love all the glass cabinets!
A casual eating area…
The family room…I like how cozy this home is. So many celebrity homes feel like show palaces. This home really feels livable, doesn’t it?
The Formal Dining Room…
You can tell these photos must have been taken for the original real estate listing before Jimmy Fallon purchased the home. Everything is so pristine, the way you might stage a home before listing it.
Look how different this bedroom looks from this picture…
…to this picture. I think the bed looks better in the first picture with the comforter tucked in.
A modern bath…
Attic rooms are always one of my fave parts of any home, they just have so much personality. This room is really huge! Wonder if that furniture piece is the headboard for the bed or just sitting behind the headboard. Interesting arrangement for the furniture, huh? I like the blue and white plaid bedskirt you can just barely see on the bed. Looks like it’s the same fabric they used on the chairs.
The other side of the attic room…Maybe this is a morning kitchen, although I don’t see a mini-refrigerator unless it’s behind the narrow cabinet door on the far right. Or, maybe there’s a full size refrigerator behind the door that’s cut into the wall. What do you think?
A big barn for the horse lover…
So how do you live Jimmy’s home in The Hamptons?
Having any idea what that was between the windows in the living room? Hope someone does because it has me puzzled!
