THE 2006 HC&G IDEA HOUSE
The 6200 square foot house is designed in a hybrid of the Shingle and the Arts-and-Crafts styles, recalling the similar summer cottages built throughout eastern Long Island from the 1880's through the 1910's. With its sweeping roofline and recessed porch, projecting bay windows, shed roof dormers and variously-scaled windows, the house recalls numerous historic houses both in the area and abroad.
First Floor Plan
The centerpiece of the interior is the dramatic double-height great room, with its large windows and clerestories, dramatic open stairway and bridge, decorative timber brackets, beaded-board paneling, and a fireplace set in a large panel of Arts-and-Crafts tile. The more intimate living room features a vaulted inglenook inspired by English Arts-and-Crafts designers, with built-in bookshelves and tiled chimney-breast.
