Renovating a Thomas Sully House


Renovating a historic Thomas Sully home was quite the honor! Our approach was to blend reverence for the past with contemporary luxury. The project entails a complete façade redo, meticulously restoring original elements to honor its heritage. In the backyard, we introduced a pool and entertainment space, infusing modern leisure into the historic narrative. This area, complete with a pizza oven and beer taps, transforms the side yard into a hub for social gatherings. A flagstone patio adds elegance to the outdoor entertaining area.

On the interior, the historic three-story staircase, a structural centerpiece, was reworked to enhance safety while preserving its character. The original fireplace separating the Foyer from the Living Room was carefully maintained, ensuring the home’s soul remains intact. The kitchen now boasts a Sub-Zero Wine Captain, blending high-end modernity with classic charm. Upstairs, the primary suite is a sanctuary for our clients with restored leaded glass, marble finishes and a Jacuzzi tub epitomizing luxury within a historic context. Even the attic was built out as a man-cave of office space and game tables for our clients and their children. We were very lucky to work with such a great family on this restoration!
