As a top executive at Burberry, Rose Marie Bravo knows a thing or two about stylish aesthetics. And her stunning waterfront Long Island house is a true reflection of her creative vision.

The property is a waterfront paradise with 850ft of water frontage and a 15-acre estate, putting it firmly in the world's best homes category. A main house and lodge are located on the stunning property.

The perfectly landscaped grounds and rose gardens lead to the main home, which has interiors that showcase coastal influences without being twee.

The statement kitchen is finished in a rich, deep blue hue with a beautiful banquette seating area. It looks out over Tuthill Cove, which can be seen from many rooms in the house. 

Texture and pattern have been introduced on the seating and dining chairs, adding a modern, playful touch.

Inspiring kitchen ideas aren't just found on the inside; on the terrace outside there's a stunning outdoor kitchen and glass solarium that allows you to appreciate the views any time of the year.

The relaxing bathroom is a tranquil retreat with coastal references, like a bleached timber trunk stool, adding warmth and texture.

The Lodge

The estate also boasts a guest house called The Lodge, with a lake house feel that can mostly be found in New England.

The four-bedroom, three-bath guest lodge has a vaulted, exposed beam great room, with cozy fireplace and beautiful views. 

There's a modern white kitchen with the rustic beamed ceilings and Adirondack chairs outside to sit and soak up the vista.
