The original house, a 1970's shoebox-shaped ranch with a 5' high basement built on a desirable corner lot in Briarcliff Manor is now a remodeled colonial in the shingle style. Due to local wetlands setback requirements the challenge was to remodel and renovate this house into a traditional colonial without changing its footprint.
We started with the entirely unusable basement that had a five foot high ceiling. We began the remodel by tearing down the house down to the basement walls. By adding three feet to the existing foundation wall height, we created eight foot ceilings in the newly remodeled basement.
We built two new floors with five bedrooms upstairs and a traditional colonial layout on the main floor, including a three car garage. Features included a new custom kitchen, a three sided fireplace separating the kitchen and family room and a grand sweeping staircase rising from the entryway.
Custom details throughout, such as hand built wainscot paneling, custom crown, baseboard, window and door moldings, and slate floors in the mudroom, finished off the house.
The newly remodeled house is now 5200 square feet and has great flow in a traditional colonial layout.
