Summer Houses by the Sea
The Shingle Style
An extremely popular traditionalist style, there have been other books on Shingle Style residential architecture, perhaps most notably the author's own successful volume Shingle Styles (Abrams), which is now more than fifteen years old. Our book takes a fresh look at both major houses and little known treasures, each in its romantic seaside locale--be it Jamestown, RI, or Montauk, NY--along with its warm interior rooms and often lush landscaping and gardens. The book will appeal to those who aspire to own a Shingle Style house, and to architects and students of architecture of this famed American vernacular style.
