What Houzz contributors are saying:

Chadwick's design for the Spaeths is more akin to the postmodern than the modern, as the previous photo and this one attest. Rather than a flat-roofed, glass box like others in the book, the architect derived a form that looks vernacular to Long Island, the Shingle Style — yet with some interesting divergences. The square windows on the shingle-faced gable-end in the previous photo are a case in point. Another is the undulating shingle wall on the other side of the house. These undulations relate to bay windows that project both on the ground floor and in the floor above.
