One of the many highlights inside this renovated home is the modern kitchen with its lovely wooden cabinets that anchor the space even as a remarkable backsplash steals the spotlight. Call it eclectic transitional modern or San Francisco-Chic; Cumberland Street Residence has an undeniable style of its own!
The new homeowners of this post war two-story house wanted a contemporary interior that was breezy devoid of unnecessary partitions and featured a rear extension that offered additional living space. Scenario Architecture accomplished this by creating an open sitting area on the lower level with just a fireplace wall separating the reception area from the kitchen.
A sculptural staircase with a wooden handrail and copper railings leads to the top level with plush bedrooms and other private spaces. Colorful bathrooms and a series of space-savvy home offices complete a stupendous makeover that seems like the perfect holiday destination and a dream home for those seeking to escape into the heart of the Alps!
This carried out by Klopf Architecture is another wonderful example of homeowners and architects coming together to restore these masterpieces to their original beauty even while infusing contemporary charm.
To ensure that privacy is not an issue it is the lower level that contains the bedrooms and other living quarters and even here one sees the presence of cleverly placed floor-to-ceiling glass windows to offer a glimpse of the world outside.
Another quirky feature of the penthouse is the presence of skull motifs in every room either in the form of artwork or unique wall murals or as accessories and prints on the accent pillows!
The master bath is as spectacular as rest of the penthouse with its accent wall in walnut and doors that usher in a dash of oriental charm. Complete with a wine cellar and man cave this remarkable New York home is all about enjoying life at its vivacious best!
