White Plains, New York

This rehabilitation and expansion of an existing residence, c: 1870, while preserving the historic portion of the house in compliance with local Historic Landmark Preservation regulations, includes a family room/ bedroom addition and detached garage in the carriage house genre.  The principle building, a distinctive example of American folk architectural design, was influenced by the French Second Empire style that first became popular during the Grant administration. It is likely that this ‘cottage’ was designed by local carpenters based on pattern books created by Andrew Jackson Downing.
