Located on a prominent corner site in the Village of Southampton, near the ocean and opposite Lake Agawam, this house takes cues from nearby Shingle-style buildings, most notably the Shinnecock Hills Golf Club by McKim, Mead & White, which features an asymmetrical gabled roof line, columned porch, and Georgian details including Palladian windows set into gable faces. The house is organized around two spacious stair halls, one for the central stair and one for the family stair. The elliptical shape of the sculptural staircase in the entry hall provides a visual focus for both the entry and the adjacent living room, which — along with the dining room — opens to a spacious porch at the southwest corner of the house. Spare Georgian moldings complement intricate hand-wrought finishes throughout the interiors and interior decorator Brian McCarthy’s exuberant palette. (RAMSA)
