This elegant home in Lattingtown, originally called “Hawk Hill,” was designed by renowned architect Maurice Fatio.

Fatio was born in Switzerland and began his practice in New York in 1921, forming a partnership with William Treanor, a native of Yonkers. The firm’s largest body of work was in Long Island and Palm Beach, where they built estate homes for society patrons and business tycoons.

Hawk Hill was built in 1925 for Emil J. Stehli, the president of a New York silk manufacturing firm. In 1929, Treanor & Fatio enlarged the home to include a Tudor Revival great room and several other rooms.

On the market for $1,299,000, the eight-bedroom and three-plus bathroom home has architectural details that include custom moldings throughout and a mahogany-paneled library. It is located on two acres on a cul-de-sac and has winter waterviews of Connecticut.
