Walter Cole Brigham and Jeannett Lawson Brigham House

10 Winthrop Road
Shelter Island Heights, N.Y.

Year Built: 1910

Built in 1910 This house was originally designed for Charles Brigham’s nephew, Walter Cole Brigham and his wife Jeannette Lawson Brigham. Bay windows have been added and the front porch has been enclosed. There was also a studio that was attached to the house but has been removed. Originally, the first story was designed to be clad in stucco, but ultimately wood shingle was used.

The house is, overall, in the Bungalow style house but also has some interesting Tudor and Craftsman elements. The knee braces on the porch are Craftsman and the original casement windows are Tudor elements.
