The Wait Is Almost Over
The Rye House Tour is just one week away, and the whole town is buzzing with excitement. If you were in the right place at the right time, you might have seen the traveling red door that marked each featured home for a few days. If you missed it, here you go. These are the spectacular and unique homes that will be on the tour May 18th.
(#3300) The “Sea Captain’s House” is an 1884 Victorian home that will transport you to another era. While floors have been replaced, the windows still have the home’s original glass. The color scheme boasts a warm, clean concept that reflects the homeowner’s European lifestyle, while allowing the artwork to take center stage.
(#3325) “What is Old is New Again.” We should all be as lucky as this 1931 white-washed brick colonial that has been lovingly updated to be fresh and relevant for today’s family. The family removed all of the interior walls of the first floor to flood the house with light without changing the traditional, welcoming footprint of this home.
(#3401) A “Mid-Century Zen Hideaway” sounds like what the doctor ordered. This 1969 home has been renovated with new windows, an eco-friendly geothermal heating and cooling system, quarter sawn oak floors with radiant heat and skylights. Throw in a master bedroom with a fireplace and what’s not to feel Zen about?
(#3341) The “Reimagined Modern Farmhouse with Flair” will make you think coveralls are chic again. The owners transformed their 1904 Victorian into their own version of a modern farmhouse. The foyer boasts cathedral-height ceilings and a floating staircase that set the stage for the wide-open floor plan.
(#3356) Finally, there is a“Timeless Tudor Transformed.” The classic Tudor has been renovated in the most modern way – the 2000-square-foot addition of a glass box that juts out from the rear of the home to include the family room, a new master bedroom, a deck area, and a larger kitchen.
If that feels like a lot to take in, don’t worry. You’ll have the opportunity to break for lunch at Shenorock Shore Club and hear guest speaker Meg Braff, a nationally recognized decorator and author of “The Decorated Home: Living with Style and Joy” talk about all things home design.
