Yesterday we toured the beautiful Long Island estate located in Glen Cove that was used in the filming of the 1995 version of the movie, Sabrina. During the movie, Linus Larrabee does everything he can to keep his brother David away from Sabrina who has just returned from living in Paris for an extended period. Sabrina left for Paris an awkward young girl, but she returned a beautiful, sophisticated woman.
To keep David and Sabrina apart, Linus takes Sabrina (via private plane) to the Larrabees adorable Menemsha cottage on Martha’s Vineyard. Linus does it under the guise of requesting Sabrina, an amateur photographer, take some pics of the home in case he decides to sell it. The surrounding views are really pretty in this authentic fishing village.
In the movie you get a brief glimpse of the Edgartown Lighthouse.
Love this view through all these fabulous windows! In real life, this cottage overlooks the fishing port of Chilmark. Interesting fact: The cottage once belonged to Billy Joel.
Linus is trying to set a trap for Sabrina and keep her out all day, so he called his staff in advance and had them prepare a little feast complete with champagne. Devious Linus!
Notice how the book shelves are decorated in the background in this waterside cottage.
I like the pretty bottles in the window, catching the sunlight off the water.
Linus had his staff fill the cottage with lots and lots of flowers. Isn’t the hat just perfect resting there on the foot of the bed?
A second adorable bedroom, this one with a brass and iron bed.
Have you ever been to Martha’s Vineyard? Ever stayed in a cottage there? I’ve never been but would love to go some day.
