2. Cobble Villa
"Cobble Villa, also known as Villa Clara, is a historic home located at Long Beach in Nassau County, New York. It was built about 1912, and is a 2 1/2-story, asymmetrical Mediterranean Revival style brick and stuccoed dwelling. It consists of an "L"-shaped core, a two-story gambrel roofed addition, and a one-story porte cochere. The building has a varied, multi-gabled roofline covered in red terra cotta tile. It was built as the nascent resort's first showpiece and a demonstration of its developer's vision." - Wikipedia
