Tim O’Brien takes a historic summer cottage off the endangered list.

The sight lines within the house are exceptionally long. From the entryway, one sees through the soaring living room into the kitchen, and then, through French doors, to the bluestone patio beyond, topped with a pergola on which Merlot grapevines grow. Light floods in through skylights and an abundance of windows. “I wanted views of the outside from every room,” says Tracey.

It was 1981, and Tom Fallon had no intention of buying a new house. A designer and creative brand executive who worked with Bill Blass for 20 years before branching out on his own, Fallon had received an invitation from industry pal Joanne Creveling to visit her house on Shelter Island one weekend. He and Creveling had met in the 1960s, when Fallon was working at Bergdorf Goodman as Halston’s assistant and Creveling was beginning her stellar career as a publicist.
