Timeless shingle style home with glorious views of the Long Island Sound

beach-style-home-exterior

This timeless shingle-style home was designed by Smiros & Smiros Architects, overlooking the Long Island Sound in Lloyd Harbor, New York. The story begins with a young couple and their three boys outgrowing a Manhattan apartment. They found an ideal location for their new home on the shores of the Long Island Sound, where the forest meets the sand.

After finding the architect and contractor, they designed their dream house and began the demolition of a non-descript modernist box with a little help from the boys themselves. The beautiful site has glorious views of Westchester County to the north and sun-drenched windows to the south.

This family’s extraordinary dream home boasts glorious views of the Long Island Sound

DESIGN DETAILS: ARCHITECT Smiros & Smiros BUILDER Stokkers + Company INTERIOR DESIGN Ronal Fenstermacher

The architects created a long bar along the shore to maximize water views in each room while letting southern light in. The resultant “great room” strings together Den, Breakfast, Kitchen, Dining, and spacious Living Room ideal for a modern family lifestyle and for entertaining visiting guests from the city.

What We Love: This classical home with a traditional facade features light-filled living spaces with beachside views. With an open concept layout, traditional details facilities a modern family lifestyle and entertaining. Bold pops of orange in the great room changes the neutral color scheme, adding visual interest. This beautiful pop of color can be found in other areas of the home, such as the cushions on the sun loungers on the spectacular pool deck.

Presenting a traditional face to the street, this gracious shingle-style home of 11,500 square feet greets you with glimpses of the water. The front door frames a jaw-dropping view through a bank of floor-to-ceiling windows that span the rear of the house.

Inside, little feet skitter across European white oak floors, up a shaker staircase leading to a long, sun-swept hallway. Each room along the vaulted corridor has lavish views of the Sound across a vast lawn rolling down to the beach. Salt kissed air flows freely through open balcony doors and windows.

From the time of the Great Gatsby, the Sound has represented the freedom and whimsy of summer, and this home embraces the Sound while providing a comfortable year-round stage & backdrop for this family’s unfolding story.
