This beachfront house in eastern Long Island maximizes views of the ocean while remaining rooted firmly in the local architectural language of wood and stone. Large open rooms with wide expanses of glass are modern in their sensibility without being overtly contemporary. Bedrooms for a family with four children, along with space for guests, fit comfortably in this house, which is both modern and traditional at the same time.
The furnishings are a combination of old and new: French antiques, collectibles, and many from contemporary designers and retailers. The millwork in the family room is made from repurposed materials from an old horse drawn fire station.
Two outdoor rooms provide the opportunity to enjoy the ocean breeze, and a double-height entry hall can be opened to the outdoors at both ends with massive sliding glass doors.
