The dream of every New Yorker came true for these clients when they were able to buy the one bedroom apartment next to their existing two bedroom. 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, dinning room and kitchen, perfect for entertaining and relaxing.
With the additional space we were able to expand the original bathroom to create a larger master 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 coveted by Manhattan families.
While keeping to a set budget, we were able to pick with the client durable and beautiful materials which reflect their wish for a practical none-ostentatious home. However, the owners “splurged” on a home automated system which includes in-wall speakers, sophisticated lighting controls and motorized shades which, according to the owner have been “life altering” and their favorite feature.
