The exterior of the Watermill retreat has a rustic simplicity of a “modern farmhouse”, mimicking the barns common to agricultural Long Island with simple geometric forms grounded in the landscape, natural wood siding, and metal roofs. The siting and shape of the house accomplishes privacy, views, and distinct outdoor spaces.
