The crown jewel of the house is the new widows walk overlooking the Nissequogue River accessed from the newly renovated den on the attic level. A custom designed handrail makes reference to historical features of the existing home while the widows walk provides a peaceful place outside, above the sound of playing children, to enjoy a glass of wine from the wine cellar or just the view. Additional alterations included new stone steps from the first floor to the rear yard, facing the river, and standing seam copper roofing on the home.
Due to the proximity to wetlands along the banks of the Nissequogue River, coordination and permitting from the NYSDEC was required, as was ensuring work was done to minimize disturbance to the site and existing home, as well as respecting the Scenic River Zone the house is located within.
