Lloyd Harbor, NY
This elegant Vermont farmhouse-style residence on the North Shore of Long Island is a classic place to entertain, gather with family, and enjoy nature. The brick and blue stone patios utilized re purposed blue stone from the original patios to compliment the traditional style of the home and barn. The barn was built without modern fasteners, using mortise and tenon joints and wooden pegs, to extend the historic value of the home which was once a family home on part of a larger estate. Pergolas perch over the rear doors and frame the view to the existing pool from the dining patio. A wooden swing under its own pergola covered in wisteria offers a peaceful setting to view the whole rear yard. Deer tolerant plantings and organic repellents are utilized throughout the property to deter the local deer population from snacking on the landscape and still keep the property open to the local wildlife. The rustic area behind the barn is the perfect place to bird watch.
