'The Orchard'

'The Orchard', originally the James L. Breese estate designed by McKim, Mead & White between 1898-1907 in Southampton but pictured here as the Charles E. Merrill estate, the home's subsequent owner.

on this postcard, the wing to the right seems not to be a full house yet. is that just artistic license or did they expand that wing later when they converted to condos? i still like this "house connected to house" style - quite frequently used here in maine when families expanded. my house was converted froma a cape to a 2 1/2 story ark when my grandparents started a family. sometimes a success - sometimes not so much - i didn't have MM&W to help here but we sure could've used them.

security word def - "plisp" - speech impediment which only happens to architects.
