30 FIRE ISLAND BLVD
Architect: EARL COMBS, c. 1964.
This is probably the earliest and most practical of Earl Combs’ octagon homes in the Pines, with an open lower plan containing all public spaces. These merge gracefully with the swimming pool, which was almost certainly added later. A central spiral stair, lit by a clerestory window, leads to pie-shaped bedrooms above. Windows skewed off of the tight property grid maximize views for a home that is sited along one of the most traveled walks in the Pines.
For many years, this was the home of the esteemed lighting designer Imero Fiorentino.
