In the 1970's, this 4,400 square foot townhouse was converted to an eight-family tenement. Its original detailing was stripped off inside and out, and its historic facade was covered with faux brick. Working closely with the Landmarks Preservation Commission to restore this home to its original architectural elegance, the firm meticulously re-created decorative brownstone elements, wood cornice, and wrought iron detailing. The new addition of a sunroom and roof terrace provide sweeping views of the East River, while the new rear terrace integrates the wrap-around gardens with the experience of the Parlor Floor. Each of these additional features are detailed to allow the townhouse to assimilate seamlessly into the neighborhood.
