Second-Story Job

When their summer home in Montauk, New York, became more hectic than relaxing, this couple decided to create a real getaway. With three active children and a long list of regular guests, they wanted a space that they could call their own. So they hired an architect to build a second story on their low-slung ranch, equipped with an office (for his work), a sewing room (for her hobby), and a large bath with a view for the ultimate in relaxation.

The generously sized bathroom features 14-foot ceilings, a pedestal tub overlooking Lake Montauk, a double vanity, and a glass-walled shower. Focal points anchor the open space. These include a 30-inch mosaic in the marble floor and the furniture-style vanity topped with a ceiling-height mirror that makes the room feel even bigger.
