Like much of Simeon Heller’s body of work, the Stein residence is now gone, falling to the larger McMansions that have developed in Beechhurst. The original house had a contemporary flair, with a central recessed and raised entrance flanked by a double height all glass living space on one side and a second floor about a two car garage on the other.
Located immediately adjacent to the taller and later Cryder House and facing the much larger complex of Levitt House, these three massive six story buildings hold 325 apartments on a small percentage of the overall 9 acre site. There is also a private beach and boat dock. The buildings look similar to the adjacent Levitt House complex, also designed by Queens-based architect George Miller.
