Home Tour: Ellen Pompeo’s Modern and Rustic Vacation Home

A little under a decade ago, actress Ellen Pompeo purchased a property in Sag Harbor to use as a vacation home. She had originally planned on using the existing structure – a charming cabin built by a civil rights activist lawyer – as a guest home and build a new, main home alongside it, but plans ended up changing when an opportunity for another home in the West Coast came up.

Instead of building a new structure, Ellen updated the original home with her own modern aesthetic, mixing the rustic nature of the original cabin with a streamlined flair. The result is a unique home – a “modern barn” as Ellen describes it – that is as comfortable as it is stylish.
