Martin Place Residence

Location: Manhasset, New York
Gross floor area: 4000 sft
Completion: January 2016 Phase 1, January 2021 Phase 2

This project was completed in two phases.  The first phase consisted of the interior gut renovation of the existing circa 1940s colonial-style home, including a new kitchen, mudroom, and 3 bathrooms, and new flooring throughout.

The second phase consisted of the finishing of the cellar into a living and entertaining space, with a guest bedroom suite.  It included underpinning the foundation to achieve a higher ceiling height as well as hydronic radiant floor heating.  A new steel girder was installed to remove a central column.  A new bedroom and bathroom were created as well as a bar and media room with custom cabinets.  A new exterior stairwell brings daylight into the cellar space and connects the cellar with the newly expanded rear patio.

The second phase also included a new pergola with automatic louvers, and insect screens, with integrated lighting and heating.  The pergola was done in a colonial style to be congruous with the existing colonial home.
