The Playhouse at 'Easton'

The playhouse at 'Easton', the Evelyn Marshall Field Suarez estate designed by David Adler c. 1931 in Muttontown. The playhouse functions as a pool house on one side with a viewing box for the tennis court on the back. The interior has guest rooms and the pool filtration equipment in the basement.

Notice the height of some of the rhododendrons around the tennis court, I would guess some were close to 30 feet tall.

Wow. Adler's sure sense of proportion was always spot on. Love the way that the pool runs like a canal from the building. The tennis court side appears to have been inspired by the Beauregard house in New Orleans. Masterful the way Adler could shift the scale and proportions of his model and adapt it to the program at hand. This is the mark of a master vs. a hack.

Aestheteslament is always spot on with his comments and questions - is this available? Rentable? Used in anyway? What a marvelous, lovely, charming place, and I do recall loving the main house when you wrote about it. Lovely and unpretentious. Robert - innatestyle
