Classic Mid-Atlantic Georgian

Dobbs Ferry, New York

Entrance to this property is through new brick piers with limestone caps that support antique wrought iron entry gates. Through the gates and on a rise in the land, sits the new residence. Beautifully scaled, this Flemish bond brick Georgian features a curved Doric entry portico with a Palladian window above, and complimentary side wings with pilastered bays. On the garden façade, the entry door is flanked by fluted Doric pilasters supporting a broken segmental pediment with a pineapple finial. Above, carved scrolls serve as the transition element for the enframement of the French doors.

On the interior, the marble tiled Entry Hall leads into the Living Room whose mantel is flanked by arched cabinetry and, like the Dining Room beyond, has French doors that allow light to stream in while providing views and access to the garden terrace. In the right wing of the house, the Kitchen opens onto the Family Room, finished in a wood beamed tray ceiling, with the Master Bedroom suite located in the left wing. The second floor contains four bedrooms for visiting family and guests, with one outfitted as an Exercise Room, while the Basement houses a three-car garage, lower level entry, a potting gardening room, and storage.

“As a millwork contractor working in Fairfield County for almost 30 years, we always look forward to working on a Hilton job. From our point of view we want to work with an Architect that thinks things through and does what an Architect needs to do. Not just create a beautiful design, but also detailing the things you don't see. The jobs also need to go smoothly and efficiently. Chuck Hilton and his staff excel at this. His jobs are thought through, all details worked out, helping all the different trades to work together for a top quality end result.”
— Doug Crane, Crane Woodworking
