Our clients bought this Tudor style home for their combined 2 families. We opened up the floor plan and the design concept aimed to complement its mostly untouched history, this was also done vertically; the formerly enclosed staircase was transformed into a 4 story open space lit by a chandelier and a skylight above connecting all floors in one grand sweep. The house was updated to the current code with new double-glazed wood and aluminum windows, new radiators, and an energy efficient central air system. The basement floor was lowered to get a comfortable height for a spectacular gym and cosy family room.

The NY landmark area Forest Hills was originally designed as a collaboration between  Grosvenor Atterbury and Frederick Law Olmsted, Jr. [1912-13], and is located just nine miles from Manhattan. Forest Hills Gardens is one of the nation's first planned garden suburbs, it was designed to include a mix of housing types for people of different incomes in this luscious green masterplan.
