This newly built house on New York’s Long Island was designed by architect Stuart Disston with one overriding challenge: “how to take advantage of the really spectacular view” of Oyster Bay.
The two-story shingle house presents a traditional face street side, with a subtly bowed front facade swelling above the portico. View subsequent slides to see how well Disston succeeded in creating rooms with a view.
