November marked the Brenners' 20th anniversary in this Frank Lloyd Wright-style home. What attracted the couple to the area was its beauty, privacy and the Cold Spring Harbor school district, Marc says. As for the house, Marc says they liked that it was set off the road on two acres. It has 21/2 bathrooms and four bedrooms. Its open layout is great for entertaining, and the kitchen suits Lucretia, whom Marc says is an avid cook. Marc chats some more about the house and the property:
"We added a 700-square-foot room to the kitchen. . . . We put in radiant heat, and since the room faces due south, it fills with sun in the winter. . . . Because the house has so many windows, it brings the outside in. Our backyard abuts Target Rock National Wildlife Refuge. When the trees are bare, the yard looks like it's 100 acres. You can see forever.
