Lloyd Harbor, New York, United States
Rising three-stories tall capped with a large cupola, this 11,500 square foot residence was designed by Smiros & Smiros Architects and built on a large lot overlooking the Long Island Sound by Stokkers + Company. According to Aspire Design And Home, the residence was built for a family moving from an apartment in Manhattan. Designed to take full advantage of the view, the main floor features large formal and informal rooms arranged along a corridor with walls of windows and French doors opening to patios, a lush lawn, swimming pool and the Long Island sound. There is a large vaulted loggia hosting both dining and entertaining areas with an outdoor stone fireplace just steps from the pool. Up the elegant staircase there are numerous bedroom suites, two which offer balconies with a view of the water. Photography by Durston Saylor.
