Crusing on Dry Land
Skaneateles, New York
Restaurant tycoon, Phil Romano, wanted a yacht on dry land.
The home, christined 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.
