The owner of a Southampton Village house, built around 1882, is seeking to add six bathrooms, two bedrooms, a gym and a garage to the approximately 5,695-square-foot lakefront house, seen on June 13, 2017. Residents and preservationists say the proposal could damage the character of the village and threaten the health of Lake Agawam. (Credit: Newsday / Rachelle Blidner)
