2008 Best Historic Renovation

This property was developed by a New York City physician. The current owners wished to reinvigorate the original architecture of the house and enlarge it to meet the needs of their family. The success of this project was greatly enhance by the skill, knowledge and maturity of Architect Phil Holt of Hold, Morgan and Russell, Princeton, NJ., the enthusiasm, commitment an availability of the owners and the experience of the field crew. The greatest threat to success was the unknown level of decay that lay behind the stucco, caused by a long recognized water and rot problem. Equally critical, was the request to keep as many of the old leaded glass casement windows and French doors as possible so the house would continue to look like the original. This required the removal, restoration and replacement of the windows.

Once work began, the extent of the hidden damage was assessed, repaired, and much of the house was reconstructed. In the end, the home was restored...and more, to become the historically consistent yet functional home this family had imagined.
