One of just a few homes designed by the man behind some of the world’s most iconic midcentury modern designs is back on the market on Long Island.
The architect Edward Durell Stone designed the home, and it was finished in 1967.
His buildings won several prestigious awards and are distinctive for their ornamentation, which often include arches, a prominent feature of this home.
Noting the distinctive arches and the towering glass windows, the listing agent, John Pierre Morales, says, “Those features alone make it one of Long Island’s unique and most prestigious properties. I haven’t seen another piece of architecture like this, ever.”
Inside the mansion, there are several massive mahogany staircases, many arches, and an indoor pool right in the middle of the home.
The pool isn’t enormous, but does offer an interesting respite for guests. Think of it as an aquatic conversation pit.

“It’s about 6 feet deep, heated, and has benches that circle the whole inside of the pool, so it was really just a place to cool off and sit down and have a few cocktails on the bench. Most of the times, people were in their regular clothes, which is interesting,” Morales explains.
Thanks to a unique filtration system, Morales says the home doesn’t suffer from the typical smell of a pool.
The formal dining room is right off the pool area, and a living room is nearby.
The four-bedroom, five-bathroom house is located on 33 acres of land with majestic trees on Long Island’s Gold Coast. The compound on the Sound is divided into four lots with a quarter-mile of waterfront.
