Recent Residential Work:
This was a New Custom Residence designed by Ian Fairweather for a client who wished to have something in keeping with the traditional older homes in this unique area of the Incorporated Village of Dering Harbor which is on a north shore of Shelter Island.
The land was previously wooded with old growth hickories & beech trees and the scrub and undergrowth was removed taking care to protect the trees surrounding the proposed home & carriage house leaving a glade-like buffer of tall canopy and inviting filtered light.
The home is beautifully proportioned & inviting with great attention to details and finishes both inside & out. It is both warm and intimate while providing fabulous rooms for entertaining.
Of this major makeover of a summer waterfront cottage into a lovely year round retirement home. This project had some serious lot coverage restrictions and to get the space needed the only way to increase the living space was to go up. Rob was able to give them the room they requested while adding the light and air with the correct placement of windows and doors to maximize the view while still providing the privacy needed for its proximity to neighbors.
