Our clients wanted to transform this five-story townhouse into a modern single family house while keeping its original "old world charm." The house was built in 1869 as a single family house, but later converted to apartments in 1938. Our extensive interior and exterior renovation resulted in 13 bedrooms, 10 baths, laundry, pantry, kitchen, dining, library and various gathering and work rooms. These needed to function well by today's standards, but look as if they had always been there. The exterior facade was cleaned and restored. New windows and exterior doors, a new five-story elevator, new heating, ventilation and AC systems as well as plumbing, electrical, and roofing were installed.
