Dream House – New York Shingle-Style Oceanfront (27 Photos)

3 min read

This Shingle-style house on a dune overlooking the Atlantic Ocean offers sweeping views of the water from all major rooms. Elegant proportions, beadboard ceilings, and antique wood floors make for distinguished yet casual interior spaces for summer living. The open plan organizes the living room, dining room, and library around a central hall; a living room porch and circular dining porch allow for beach-front entertaining. The double-height family room opens to a lap pool with two cabanas. A clay tennis court nestled into the landscape is concealed from the long entry drive and house.

The gambrel roof, gray-stained fancy cut shingles, slender Doric columns at the porches, and blue shutters recall earlier shingled Dutch Revival houses typical of Eastern Long Island.
