Brooklyn, one of New York City's boroughs, is a vibrant hub and a perfect place to live, work and play in. The residents here proudly call Brooklyn their home. And today, we will explore a beautifully treasured house in Adelphi, Fort Greene, Brooklyn, which had the pleasure of being rejuvenated by the expert architects from Sa-Da Architecture. The restoration and renovation of the historic four-story wood row house built in 1860, along with two-story rear enlargements with new garden design added sophisticated beauty to the mansion. While the exterior of the building is colonial and stately, the interiors are replete with modernism and sleek designs. Cozy furniture, pops of bright colors, and practical touches make this residence a must see.
A view of the facade immediately tells us about the good aeration and natural light allowance into the house. Metallic railings at the entrance give it a touch of elegance. Glass windows are securely lined by solid frames. Also, the colonial style of architecture makes it stand out among its neighbors. The sleek, wood-lined doors are simple yet fashionable and the colors used are neutral but chic.
A house becomes a home when you have a cozy living space for a casual late evening tête-à-tête and witness an indoor garden through French windows. The creamy walls ensure serenity and add comfort to the setting. The furniture is trendy with the orange sofa offering a vibrant touch. And the painting is an aesthetic touch.
