The dream of every New Yorker came true for these clients when they were able to buy the one-bedroom unit next to their existing two-bedroom apartment. This clean and contemporary combination created a large, four-bedroom home on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. The large open space includes a generous foyer, living room, dining room and kitchen, perfect for entertaining and relaxing.
With the additional space we expanded the original bathroom to create a larger primary bathroom, his and her walk-in closets, a comfortable home office for two working parents, a sun filled family den, and a bedroom and bathroom suite for their daughter. The second kitchen was converted into a spacious storage closet.
While keeping to a set budget, we picked durable and beautiful materials which reflect the homeowners’ wish for a practical non-ostentatious home. However, the owners “splurged” on a home automated system with in-wall speakers, sophisticated lighting controls and motorized shades, which according to the owner have been “life altering” and their favorite feature.
