Best of the Week

We are once again branching out to cover a mid-century haven located on Fire Island. In the 1950s, architects who lived and worked on the island began making their mark by building wooden Modernist homes for wealthy clients. Modernism is perhaps the prevailing architectural genre of the island’s homes perched around pristine beaches.

If you have ever considered a summer home, don’t miss this opportunity to scoop up one of these extraordinary homes. Even though we do not work in Suffolk county, we would love to connect you to a trusted agent who specializes in mid-century homes in this area.

As always enjoy our picks and have a great weekend!


P.S. If you have any friends or family that would enjoy this weekly update, please let us know and we would be glad to add them to our mailing list.
