A Celebrity Hairstylist Trims Her Real Estate Portfolio, Listing a $3 Million Home in the Hamptons

Renowned celebrity hairstylist Sally Hershberger, who founded her eponymous salons in Los Angeles and New York City and travels the globe styling her A-list celebrity clientele, is a household name in the world of fashion and beauty. A pioneer in the hair industry, Hershberger’s client roster includes Miley Cyrus, Meg Ryan, Julia Roberts, and Joan Jett, among others, who pay upwards of $800 for a haircut.

It seems that hair isn’t the creative stylist’s only passion, as her international real estate portfolio attests. Many of her rental properties and luxury homes from London to L.A. to the Hamptons have been featured in various publications over the years, and the latest to hit the market is a midcentury-modern-inspired house in East Hampton, New York. Listed for a smidge under $3 million, the Masthead Lane home, called The Butterfly House, was built in 1976 and has been lovingly restored and renovated over the years.

The sleek living room is anchored by a minimalist fireplace.

Far more humble and relaxed than many of the palatial multi-million-dollar Hamptons properties swimming in excess and opulence, Hershberger’s hideaway is a fine example of modest living and contemporary design. Situated on one acre in the northern part of East Hampton and just a brief walk to the beaches set along Gardiners Bay, Butterfly House spans 2,000 square feet with two bedrooms, two full bathrooms, and one powder room. The house gets its name from its inwardly sloped rooflines, which resemble butterfly wings. Built into the hillside, the home has a wraparound terrace on the upper level and a set of stairs over a lush hillside that leads to a path down to the pool and ample lawn space for garden parties and badminton games.

The interiors feature clean lines, open spaces, and soaring ceilings and are crafted with natural materials, including exposed wood and vast walls of glass. The loft-like main living and entertaining space is on the upper floor to take advantage of light, air, and views. The open-plan kitchen has custom wood cabinetry and a large skylight that adds additional natural light; nearby is a dining table that faces the terrace; and the sleek living area has a monolithic minimalist fireplace with a raised hearth. The wood ceilings are punctuated with blackened wood beams and slant upwards as you get towards the edges of the home. A wraparound deck overlooking the backyard and swimming pool can be accessed from many points on this level.

The lower level is dedicated to sleeping quarters, with two spacious bedrooms and two full bathrooms. There’s also a mostly subterranean basement area with laundry facilities, as well as a single-car garage. Down a set of stairs and a winding pathway is the 46-foot-long pool, which has an elevated deck for sun loungers. Shrouded in privacy, thanks to towering specimen trees and landscaping that includes indigenous grasses and rolling lawns, the home feels like its own private countryside paradise in the middle of one of the most exclusive beach towns on the planet.

The property is listed by Kathy Konzet of Sotheby’s International Realty—Bridgehampton Brokerage.
