Couture fashion designer Arnold Scaasi’s 7-bedroom/6.5-bathroom home in Quogue recently sold for $2,800,000. The famed designer, who passed away in August 2015, counted First Ladies Mamie Eisenhower, Barbara Bush, Hillary Clinton and Laura Bush, as well as Mary Tyler Moore, Lauren Bacall, Elizabeth Taylor, Joan Crawford, Diahann Carroll, Shirley McClain, Susan Sarandon and Ivana Trump as clients. He was also responsible for the scandalous see-through pantsuit that Barbra Streisand wore when she accepted the Academy Award for Funny Girl.
Scaasi’s waterfront home, 27 Old Point Road in Quogue, highlighted the designer’s eccentric yet polished style. Dubbed “Scaaladd” (a combination of Scaasi’s name and Parker Ladd’s name – his partner of 50 years), the secluded 1.7 acre estate includes 4,066 sq. ft. of living space, as well as 472 ft. of bulkheading and unparalleled views spanning to Dune Road and the ocean.
“Previously owned by renowned fashion designer to the stars, Arnold Scaasi, the current owners plan on restoring this 6,000-square-foot historic circa-1920 home to its original glory,” shared listing agent Enzo Morabito of Douglas Elliman.
The exquisite abode was featured in Architectural Digest twice.
