William Merritt Chase Homestead is a historic home located at Shinnecock Hills in Suffolk County, New York.

History[edit]

It was built as a residence and studio for artist William Merritt Chase (1849–1916) in 1892 by the prominent architectural firm of McKim, Mead, and White. It is a 2 12-story frame structure sheathed in wood shingles that have weathered to a muted, sun-bleached brown. Four gable dormers and three eyebrow windows (added in 1917) project from the gambrel roof. A rear laundry room, porch, and bathroom were added in 1920. Also on the property is a 1-story wood-frame barn.[2]

The house was the subject of one of Chase's own paintings in 1893. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1983.[1]
