A quiet, weekend escape
This lovely weekend get-away on Fire Island (New York) belongs to Ann Stephenson and her partner Lori Scacco. When they bought the A-frame house, which was built it in 1945 from a Gimbel’s prefab kit, all it needed was some updating and love. The previous owners had already given the raw wood on the interior a coat of white paint. The couple set about creating a no-fuss seaside retreat that stayed within their tight budget. They repainted the entire space down to the raw plywood floor in Benjamin Moore China White. A raised wooden walkway leads to the house, which is nestled on a large, vegetated block which boasts a series of boardwalks with views of ocean on one side and bay on the other. The 32-mile-long island has no paved roads and is car-free other than official vehicles. So it truly is an idyllic escape from the hustle and bustle of city life.
