Westchester Magazine’s American Dream Home is opening its doors for tours this week in Tarrytown, New York. It’s “a luxurious, well-appointed townhome that’s both elegant and modern, and boasts every imaginable energy-efficient feature that exists in the building industry today.” Here’s a peek:
It sits in Hudson Harbor’s waterfront community on the banks of the Hudson River and is “a cutting-edge green community of LEED-registered, ENERGY STAR-efficient homes.”
I thought the kitchen was kind of unexpected, mixing modern elements with traditional ones, black tile with white cabinets, and then changing the wall color for the eating area. Do you think it works?
There will be a “pop-up shop” where you purchase furniture and other items. The rooms were decorated by designer Susan Anthony and Ethan Allen.
Anthony says, “We’ve packed a lot of cool ideas into this compact carriage house. When we designed the interiors, we wanted to show that you can take some traditional pieces that you love—we used some American antiques and artifacts—and blend them with new choices to form a different design story and way of living.”
Nothing I like better than spending a Sunday taking a house tour. Even when they’re not my style, I still get ideas from them.
Open house hours begin October 19 and will take place every Thursday-Sunday through November 11. For more information or to purchase tickets visit Westchester Magazine. (Thanks to Stephanie and Kris for telling me about it.)
