A run down 2 unit former rental is about to undergo a luxury transformation into a New Urbanist style loft home this spring.
The home was once a servant house and carriage house for a large mansion that once sat on Beekman hat was demoed for parking for the Lunkenheimer 3 building. This structure is the last remaining piece of what was a three building compound that had the original mansion and a large secondary structure that was likely built for the extended family and this home which was where the servants lived and carriages were kept.
In the 1940's it was sold off and had a variety of owners. The home has been vacant since its last owners went into foreclosure. The home was acquired during the forfeited land sale in 2013.
The home will be completely rebuilt with an nod to its carriage house roots with a street façade than mimics carriage style doors combined with a combination of hardi board and batten and hardi panel materials to create anew urbanist style home.
A new partial top floor will feature one of two master suites in the homes which will complete out at 2800 sq feet of finished space, that includes two story open living room with loft master suite. Two rooftop decks will provide panoramic views of the city skyline.
Anticipated sales price will be in the 265,000.00 range. This is one of several projects underway and planned in the Knox Hill "Overlook District in 2014.
