This project involves a significant addition and renovation to an existing Dutch Colonial residence, along with a new pool and pool house with extensive sitework to 3 acres of park-like landscape. Exterior details and materials are replicated from the original house.
The interiors feature extensive custom cabinetry and millwork including paneled and beamed family room, mahogany master bathroom and custom kitchen all produced by Brenner Builders Millshop. Fieldstone collected from laborious site preparation was used to construct retaining walls, front boundary walls and entry piers.
Some special features include:
- Crestron controlled “smart house” allows the homeowners
to operate and integrate the mechanical systems, phone
system, lighting, audio/visual systems, pool and spa, and
the security systems from strategically installed touch
pads or remote control device.
- A fourteen foot floor to floor height from the basement to
the first floor allows for the mechanical systems to be
easily accessed from a wood paneled basement ceiling with
a 10 foot height.
- The media room features a ceiling mounted
projector illuminating a 110" screen
for viewing while you are enveloped by a state of the art
surround sound system. Sophisticated sound proofing techniques
and materials allow others in the residence to enjoy their
private spaces during media room use.
- Enamelled lavastone, honed absolute granite, carrara marble,
and cherry butcher block tastefully grace the countertops
of the kitchen, breakfast room, and butlers pantry.
- Three computer controlled boilers provide radiant heat for
all tiled floors, hydro-air in the living spaces, domestic
hot water, and pool & spa
heat during the summer months.
