He ultimately bought a home without a water view, but always planned on upgrading to waterfront property when the perfect parcel became available.
His patience paid off in 2007, when a red vinyl–clad home on an amazing lot came on the market.
Call it hyperbole, but as is the case with so many men, much of my self-esteem is tied up in my appearance and libido.
How would this baleful development affect my relationship prospects? The Day I Went Gray: It could’ve been a Roger Corman horror flick for all the anxiety I felt that morning -- and continued to feel for weeks.
A native son, he grew up above his father’s Speonk veterinary practice, and later a solar-powered, state-of-the-art showplace in Westhampton Beach.
Pescod’s current East End home is his sixth in the area, but make no mistake: A typical Hamptons home-flipper he is not.
Sitting there during a snow storm, sipping a Manhattan, is one of my favorite NYC memories.
But if I want a bit more fancy, the Top of the Standard is the most beautiful room in NYC for cocktails!
Annuals, perennials and vegetables share the space, while the herb garden, behind the barn, boasts lush plantings including rosemary, chives, thyme and catmint, which one can smell immediately upon entering. When I moved to East Hampton in 1985, I rented a house that had woods behind it, and I just started clearing the woods and underplanting. I did for a long time, but I just don't have time now. I have very tight boxwoods, but inside them, it's messy. It's a very fragrant double-flowering white beach rose. Keep an eye on Facebook when I'll invite all of you to check out my new website and you can check out and chime in on my going's on!!
Garten is as warm and unpretentious in person as she is on TV, and she seems genuinely honored that her kitchen and herb garden have been chosen by House Beautiful magazine as "kitchen of the year'' and re-created for public display this week at Rockefeller Center. And one day, a local nursery started delivering trees and my husband said, "I think you need to buy a house," because it was a rental.

I worked with her for 4 years and we've maintained a great friendship for the past 25 years!! from an American fan in India, a couple who own a gourmet shop in Napa (to name a couple), to my many encounters with fans in airports and on the street...have all been so fabulous and complimentary!
The gardens behind the house are formal, yet casual, with mostly purple-, blue- and green-flowering plants randomly placed within perfectly trimmed boxwood frames connected by gridlike walkways. And on the side of the house, there's a huge long row of beach roses called Blanc Double de Coubert. JB: Can you tell us anything about your Sex And The City experiences in 19? Keep watching there will be more shows with Ina and I!!
I inherited the design bug from him pretty early on.” But it wasn’t until after two decades of bouncing between New York City, Paris, and Los Angeles—first working in the music business and then as a model and actor—that Pescod returned home to Long Island, in 2001.
