Meadowcroft, the last remaining Long Island home by famed architect and House & Garden magazine founder Wilson Eyre and one of the great summer places of the Hamptons, according to the definitive book "Houses of the Hamptons 1880-1930 (The Architecture of Leisure)," is now available. An American treasure, the Arts & Crafts-style estate is an extraordinary example of the holistic approach to the joining of landscape and built form. A testament to the exceptional architecture of the Golden Age, the circa-1904 manse, updated yet in keeping with its true character and original details, was built as a summer cottage for industrialist Theodore Conklin, whose family held the property for five generations. The 9,000-square-foot manse is sited on 6.91 waterfront acres and comes with commanding views of Quantuck Bay. Featuring eight bedrooms; seven-and-a-half baths; lighting by Louis Comfort Tiffany, a friend of the original owner; bespoke fireplaces; wine cellar; movie screening room.
