thanks for you praise, the house is not a rectangle, in fact a complex shape coming around sides and rear. if this helps, its 4700 sq ft exclusive of garage and basement.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Another house on Long Island that appears rooted to its site is this house in stone and wood. The landscaping also plays a role in this presence, especially the way the it rises from front to back (like the house), culminating in the mature trees behind the house.
Josh McCullar | SMBW added this to Great Compositions: Heavy and Light
Just squint your eyes to get just the essence of this house, and you'll see it appears as stone ruins as the darker infill recedes. As in the first image, the poetic narrative of a reclaimed and reinhabited ruin is a powerful architectural essay in heavy and light.Contrast in design may just be the secret ingredient that makes something good into something unforgettable.More Great Compositions:Lower-Cost, Low-Tech Modern HomesThe Dogtrot HouseThe L-Shaped HouseLight and Private Courtyard Houses
Frank Organ added this to Geometric Designs Keep Plants in Line
It’s easy, you may say, to find examples of this style of planting in modern minimalist gardens, where the simple plantings lend themself to modern layouts, but what about more traditional garden designs?Normally you would expect beds like these to be filled with flowing drifts of mixed plantings, but here we see clean lines of geometric beds as well as a restricted planting scheme, with one species per bed. It’s interesting to see that even the trees have been planted in a block to give an extra layer of interest.
