Take a Tour of Marc Murphy's Beachside Oasis
At Marc Murphy’s Hamptons home, every day feels like a vacation. His seven-bedroom Bridgehampton, N.Y., house is complete with getaway favorites, including a bocce court, a swimming pool and hanging outdoor lounge chairs. But the real highlight of the 7,000-square-foot home is its expansive deck space. The outdoor lounge and dining area (complete with a 12-foot dinner table and state-of-the-art outdoor kitchen) was made for Marc’s favorite pastime: entertaining. “There are people literally always here,” says Marc’s wife, Pam. Take a peek at their waterfront home and you’ll see why.
The foyer connects the front of the house to the back deck and has ample storage for shoes (though, truth be told, everyone walks around the house barefoot in the summer).
Every summer the Murphys throw at least one huge party for about 180 people, and they put the rooftop lounge and dining area to good use.
Marc has a full outdoor kitchen for cooking elaborate meals. He uses his Grillworks gas grill to cook meat, fish and veggies — and, once, a 65-pound whole pig. “It was so big, it practically broke the grill,” he says.
Huge hanging lounge chairs make it easy for the family to relax outside.
A lighted pathway leads to a small deck with Adirondack chairs, a perfect spot for relaxing with a morning coffee.
