Located on the eastern tip of a secluded island separating Montauk and the Connecticut shoreline, the original 1930s home was built for an American magazine magnate employing an array of eclectic design styles. The new owners envisioned a traditional New England aesthetic with a functionally appropriate sized interior for single-family living. By retracting the oceanfront property from the cliff and reconnecting it to the lush grounds, the design allowed for a wraparound porch with multiple decks and seating areas for unobstructed views. An elegant double-height foyer was created for this nautical-inspired vacation home which features salvaged design elements throughout: ship lights, portholes, and a custom compass rosette. A newly created second-floor master suite, complete with deck, overlooks the Atlantic. A pool house, designed to resemble the main residence, seamlessly connects the pool and dramatic property.
