This historic home was in pretty terrible shape when purchased by a very courageous client of ours. The original structure had nice proportions, but the series of small haphazard additions were all unsalvageable. Claverack Builders had to essentially rebuild the main home from the ground up. We added a first floor bedroom suite and spacious kitchen while holding true to the neoclassical proportions on the original structure. We ended up with a lovely blend of old and new, keeping original wide plank floors where possible, restoring the stair and rail with it’s mix and match balusters to it’s original design. We also stripped the large pocket doors between the two parlors, recreated the custom brass tracks it runs on, and refurbished the marble fireplace mantel with a new gas fireplace.
This bright spacious kitchen is the envy of many. It has light on three sides, vaulted ceilings and plenty of room to prep for a big party or gather for breakfast. Soapstone counters, custom cabinets including sheet drawers in the kick space and the pot filler are all nice touches seamlessly blended into a space with a very simple, open aesthetic.
