East Farm Estate

Head of the Harbor, NY

A new 25,000 square foot residence situated on a 32 acre farm overlooking the Head of the Harbor on the Long Island Sound, New York. The clients requested a shingle style house that would accommodate the needs of their family, various workshops, and an astronomical observatory. The house was designed to straddle two slopes bisected by an abandoned 18th century tree-lined lane from the harbor. Taking advantage of the views, the lower level under the first floor terrace was excavated for an indoor pool and accessory spaces, with the main public areas of the home above, oriented towards a meadow and the harbor beyond.
