New England Nautical

Skaneateles, New York

Restaurant tycoon, Phil Romano, wanted a yacht on dry land.

The home, christened with lily pads in honor of his wife,
Lillie Romano became a fantasy of touring the high seas.
They liked the look and feel of a yacht but not a boat itself.
The exterior was designed to be a cross between a lighthouse and a boat with sweeping aft decks of a luxury cruise liner and a round kitchen window as a porthole.


An arched sliding nanowall for an outside - inside entertaining. The kitchen was designed for entertaining with three Subzero glass-doored refrigerators, custom nautical dining table, all with a view of Skaneateles lake.

The master bedroom has windows set in a semi-circle arch to mimic the bow of a Stateroom.
