Westchester Home

Down to view

So many times we have been asked to design a kitchen for a client and find that they are so delighted with the results that they have asked us to do work in the rest of the home. This wonderful William and Mary home had been remodeled over the years with little sensitivity to its character, original intent and detailing. Our approach was first to understand what the client wanted and then study the architecture and history of this classical home. To maintain its architectural integrity, we needed to determine which of the existing parts to keep. For example, the stained glass windows were original to this home, as were as some of the interior doors, and we felt strongly that these should stay. The restoration completely transformed the interiors and returned the home to its original beauty. We were so pleased to have had a wonderful client who respects the past and allowed us to into home to ensure that they will be able to enjoy it for many years to come.
