Chappaqua Classic

The Exquisite Chappaqua Classic

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.

Cucina Modern

Cucina Modern Renovation 01

Cucina Modern is an imaginative renovation that transforms a tired, run-of-the-mill kitchen into a vibrant, modern backdrop for family and entertaining. A new unifying porcelain plank floor integrates the existing kitchen, mudroom, and laundry spaces into one gorgeous neutral palette. Layers of sleek, minimalist cabinetry and smooth stone countertops contrast with the textured glass mosaic backsplash. The new stainless-steel farm sink, open island cooktop with downdraft exhaust, and matching appliances create an “urban loft” vibe. Adjacent to the kitchen, the former mudroom and laundry rooms were transformed into a multifunction office, laundry, pantry, and beverage center that keeps the family organized and the clutter off countertops and out of the kitchen.

Clover Hill Farm

Clover Hill Farm

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.
