2014—Best Remodel $2 – 3 Million, Clover Hill: Legacy Construction and Carol Kurth Architects 

Clover Hill Farm had a complete interior and exterior facelift. The garage and the garage wing, entry portico and dormers were added. All siding, exterior trim and roofing were changed to create the elegant estate home that currently sits on this 20-acre Bedford backcountry horse farm. The main staircase was removed and replaced with a modern stair which sets the tone for the rest of the interior renovation. The master suite, living room, dining room and den were completely gutted and re-built in an award winning example of transitional architecture. The exterior remains traditional with sleek appointments and the interior leans toward a modern vernacular.

2014—Best Remodel $1 – 2 Million, Chappaqua Classic: Legacy Construction and Daniel Contelmo Architects 

Both the interior and exterior of this 7,500 square foot Chappaqua home were completely gutted, transforming what was a very basic colonial with simple finishes into an exquisite shingle-style home with incredible custom casework details, including a specialized kitchen, library and entry hallway. Every room was recreated, from the one-of-a-kind arts-and-crafts room to a special homework office area off the kitchen.

2011—Outstanding Special Purpose Room, Farm-to-Table Home: Legacy Construction and Carol Kurth Architects 

This award-winning special purpose room is a uniquely constructed conservatory used to house the client’s year-round organic vegetables and spectacular orchid and plant collection. With a fascinating combination of millwork and glass components, the room is nothing less than a work of art.

2011—Best Outdoor Room, Farm-to-Table Home: Legacy Construction and Carol Kurth Architects 

The arched covered trellis creates a seamless connector between the main house and the conservatory, while the tranquil dining area with its mahogany lined ceiling and unique square brick floor makes this inviting space perfect for summer entertaining.

2011—Best Residential Remodel $1 – 2 Million, Farm-to-Table Home: Legacy Construction and Carol Kurth Architects 

The additions and renovations on this inspired Westchester home transformed the original structure, built in the 1980s, into an elegant country estate satisfying the client’s desire to maintain a true “farm-to-table lifestyle” with easy movement from the kitchen to the greenhouse, the gardens and back. The family room addition brings elements of the outdoors inside and features a refined bluestone floor, rustic reclaimed beams and solid limestone fireplace with solid, seven-foot-long bluestone hearth.

2007—Best Spec House $5 – 6 Million, Birchwood Residence: Richard Kotz Architect

This traditional colonial home set in back country Greenwich, CT boasts an elegant, expansive layout, with the first and second floors coming in at 8,500 square feet and the basement adding an additional 2,000 square feet. With custom casework throughout, artisanal attention to detail and a focus on efficient special flow, the structure epitomizes how families ideally live today. This home has also been featured in a major feature-film production.

2007—Best Custom Home Over 12,000 Sq. Ft., Sterling Residence: Carol Kurth Architects

The original house that once occupied this land was demolished to make way for this spectacular home, designed by the team at Carol Kurth Architects using interconnected buildings and vernacular barn forms to create a cluster of smaller structures, creating the feeling of a “tiny village.” Unpretentious materials such as cedar shakes, copper, vertical barn siding, indigenous stone and solid walnut mesh with a spectacular stone wall spine bisecting the house in this award-winning estate, which has been featured in national publications as well as television production pieces.
