Colonial Court South Residence

Sunnyside, NY

Program: Conversion: 2 Family to 1 Family
Area: 2500sf
Status: Design 2023

This project involves the conversion of a two family house into a single family residence. Located at the southern edge of the Sunnyside Gardens Historic District, in Colonial Court (1924), this house uniquely features both a rooftop terrace to enjoy the view of the garden and an enclosed front porch facing the street. The interior renovation will reconfigure the house to include three bedrooms, a study, four bathrooms as well as an open kitchen/dining area and an enlarged living space. The living area will have an adjacent study with glazed French doors. The attic provides a separate floor, with dramatic ceilings, for a home office and exercise space with access to the upper roof terrace with sweeping views. Exterior work includes replacing all windows with historic wood configurations.  The project will begin with a master plan for the entire house and then focus on the main two floors.
