The designers of renowned local firm Michael Hsu Office of Architecture updated and remodeled this midcentury beauty, but—rather than detracting from or obscuring them, the update highlights the home’s original bones.
Located in the tony, central-city Tarrytown neighborhood, the one-story house backs to a wet weather creek and Built in 1958, it features a blend of period and contemporary materials and styles, including terrazzo and wood floors, floor to ceiling windows, custom cabinetry, and marble countertops. There’s also a fireplace that serves as a good example of the midcentury-contemporary blend.
The 3,644-square-foot house has three bedrooms and four bathrooms, as well as two dining areas, two living areas, a bonus room, an office, and a two-car garage with a tricked-out workshop. It also has a sweet back deck with distinctive midcentury touches and a dramatic stairway that leads to its sloping backyard (and the aforementioned creek), which is shaded by tall trees.
