Long island and the cottage style:
The two styles are closely related to each other and both come from beach house establishments, where a lot of white-painted wood is used. Light tones with wide white beams and a wide light parquet floor is one of the features. Given that the terraces on the ground floor were always present in the long island style, this remains one of the greatest features of this style. With the typical balustrade in white painted wood, the colonial feeling remains fully present.


The long island style is actually part of the cottage style from England. The Long Island was originally the long island adjacent to the city of New York, where a beautiful sandy beach has emerged. The west of Long Island was colonized by the Dutch. They called it the long eylant. The island was part of the Dutch colony of New Netherland. Along the long coast, numerous large villas have emerged, always with the same long Island style in the beginning.
