Originally built in 1938, this Classic Irvington Tudor Remodel has undergone successive renovations to help support an evolving family.
What began as a design experimentation laboratory for a young single architect has evolved into an expanded dwelling to support a family of four and a small live-work arrangement. The first hole in the wall was a big-deal, and now a complete overhaul is old-hat. Design concepts maintain historic scale and character from the street and alley while integrating more modern interiors that expand to exterior only between house and studio.
Features include new modern kitchen/living space, new bathroom re-purposing vintage glass tile, custom built-in bunk beds, numerous custom storage accommodations, new loft level with custom open-riser stair re-purposed from original roof rafters, new Master Suite, new carriage house/studio connected to primary structure by way of a bridge and elevated deck, and new garage.
As with many personal residences, it will never really be done, will it?
