Wainscott Residence

Wainscott, New York

Even at 6768 sq ft this residence keeps its cottage charm by skillfully combining circa 1910 English country house design and proportions with American shingle style features. For example, the porch which indents into the man facade of the house is typically English and the shingle arched opening is a characterisic shingle style feature. The heart of the house is the spacious kitchen opening directly to a large family area with firepace and breakfast area. The dining room is formal served by a butler's pantry. The first-floor bedroom is very private. The den is an extension of the living room, well scaled for TV watching for seven. The three car garage is off to the side so as not to over power the rest of the house. Upstairs the master bedroom has good privacy from the three other bedrooms. It features a fireplce, roof deck, separate sitting area, and large bathroom and closet area.
