This Ford Strei Home Remodel on Rockmoor in Tarrytown started life as a typical ranch style home with a very uninspiring floor plan, the typical long and shallow front porch and very little character.
Tim Cuppett Architects designed the remodel around a specific list of requests made by the new owners. The wish list included keeping the existing footprint (add on only as needed to increase floor space), keep it a single story, create a large / dining / kitchen / family room where everyone can gather and be together. Plus they wanted to add a nice pool, screen porch and rear patio area to expand into the outdoors.
The design was finalized and the house was partially demolished. Portions of existing walls and the roof were saved and remained part of the new design. A large portion of the existing brick veneer was also salvaged.
An addition to the rear of the house allowed for a much larger kitchen, dining and screen porch area. The ceiling height of the formal portion of the house received a taller ceiling with a gently curved transition where the wall meets the ceiling.
Modern appliances, and new systems were installed to bring this house up to today’s standards. An addition to the front allowed for the creation of a guest bedroom and bathroom and allowed for a revised front porch, and entry area with an overhead steel arbor.
The interior features hardwood floors throughout the house with 4 full baths and a powder bath. The backyard received a new layout including a large pool and spacious deck area along with beautiful landscaping from S.B. Landscaping.
