Calhoun Residence, Fishers Island, New York

Located on the western shore of Fishers Island, this stately home rests prominently along the shoreline of this prestigious vacation community. The house was completely stripped of the original stucco and asphalt roof and replaced with cedar clapboard and cedar shakes. A more defined entrance portico begins the sequence with which one moves through the house. Dormers were added, as well as new doors and windows, to increase ceiling heights and take greater advantage of the views. The interior spaces were reorganized to accommodate a more contemporary lifestyle. A large, covered veranda was added to the back of the house, looking out over the pool and to the Long Island Sound beyond. All of the mechanical systems were upgraded, including new heating and air-conditioning systems. The home and landscape features create a most serene and peaceful setting for this island retreat.
