The Owners loved the location and history but the property had changed hands quite a few times, each time the interior changing for the worse. George Homsey (GD expert) of EHDD fame, along with Joram Altman designed the project. Due to neighbor involvement, most of the visible exterior needed to be restored and all interiors and rear façade were gutted, structurally reinforced, refitted and refinished. The split-level garage and storage became the biggest structural challenge due to reinforcing massive existing concrete-encased steel beams and underpinning existing footings. Installing a new, sub-floor, elevator-accessed storage facility also proved challenging. Hillside conditions and tight street access were other obstacles as well, but all worth the time and effort. While the lower guest units were of top quality, the two floor owner’s quarters needed to be masterfully fitted with intricate built-in cabinetry throughout, a stunning and abundant kitchen, and luxuriously appointed master bath. All rooms were finished with simple, yet precise elegance, highlighting window views and exterior light in true EHDD fashion.
