On Tour 2009

• A 1905 brick home where “urban archaeology” has revealed original beauty beneath a century of paint and various remodeling; restoration/rejuvenation is given an exotic twist by adding ancient Moroccan, Portuguese, and Turkish accents.
• A one-bedroom, 15th floor rental apartment with 750-square feet, sweeping views, all new appliances and an unbelievable five closets in the Patio Gardens complex.
• A 1907 limestone, impeccably restored inside and out, boasts an exercise room, guest suite, luxurious bathrooms and a 21st-century galley kitchen. Its majestic pocket doors and vintage chandeliers bring back the nostalgia of bygone days.
• 2006 Winner of the Silver Award from the Association of Professional Landscape Designers, a lush shared back garden with a Southern theme features two waterfalls, charming seating areas and paths that beckon one to relax and enjoy.

• A “brand new old house” total restoration of a 1911 limestone townhouse, resulting from a fire sustained in 2007, is graced by a vast collection of the owner’s own abstract paintings.
• The eco-friendly renovation of a two-family 1910-11 home, with an abundance of stained and slag glass, maintains its historic detail while providing an open, airy and contemporary feel.
• Clever renovating, bold colorful decorating and easy shortcuts by its design-duo owners have transformed a picturesque 1915 neo-Tudor row house into a British country manor.
• An elegant 1909 neoclassic limestone showcasing a sleek 21st-century kitchen designed to fit salvaged mid-century stainless steel cabinetry; a large collection of antiques, photography and art; and two rare urban oases: an earth-toned spa and a private rear garden.
• An 1898 transitional Romanesque Revival/neo-Renaissance limestone and brick townhouse, with an oriel; dog-leg, high stoop; and unique early 20th-century iron and glass awning. Its interior has been modernized for today’s living while retaining all original features and a wealth of intricate woodwork.
• West Indian, African and Afro-American artwork and vintage woodwork grace the parlor floor of this elegant 1907 neo-Renaissance limestone. The state-of-the-art, owner-designed kitchen juxtaposes red, wood floors and red granite countertops against pale custom cabinetry and stainless steel appliances.
• A 1911 townhouse with Arts and Crafts interior renovated to include a stunning kitchen with dining pass-through of tree branch marble and overhead cabinetry; a stylish bath; and a staircase adorned with vintage school maps and influenced by the owner’s study of feng shui.
