The sellers of a 13-room Lloyd Harbor home, listed for $6.249 million, designed it to accentuate its natural surroundings.
“I worked very closely with the architect -- I didn’t want a two-story wall of stone and brick,” says owner Roxanne Schwartz, a homemaker. “I wanted something that fit into the natural beauty of the North Shore.”
She and her husband purchased the property in 1996, knowing they were going to renovate it. There was a home on the land.
“We ended up knocking it down and building further from the water so we could have more patio area and room outside,” as well as a pool that also takes in the vista, says Schwartz.
Since the view of the outdoors was important, a lot of thought was put into the windows themselves.
“We did the whole water side of the house in all windows,” she says. “I wanted the outside to be part of the rooms.”
Pam Doyle of Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty has the listing.
