This new construction was featured in the 2010 spring edition of Beautiful Homes (pg. 86). The symmetrical entrance and rigidity of a traditional colonial are softened by shingle style and supplemented by stonework. An angled garage wing responds to the natural contours of a plateau on which the house sits, testifying to the ability of Daniel Contelmo, architect, to address the natural landscape as well as clients' needs. The three-level home is divided into adult and adolescent spaces. While the front and left side of the entry consist of more formal rooms, including the dining room, living room, office, and master bedroom suite, the right side of the house consists of children's spaces, which are interconnected vertically by a second staircase from a playroom in the basement to the bedrooms two stories above. Notable features of the home include a wine cellar, a 19-seat home theatre, and a billiard room. Although this Westchester classic contains scores of rooms, each feels personal and the residents are not dwarfed by the space in which they live.
