TOWNHOUSE: A Home Tour – In Detail
On a beautiful tree-lined Upper East Side block, rests the stunning row of Beaux-art brownstones built in the early 1900s, in an area originally designed for the well-established and cultured New Yorkers (Andrew Carnegie and Vanderbilts lived nearby). The current owners purchased the property with plans for a complete renovation and restoration of the facade, including the addition of the original designed stoop that was sadly demolished in the 50s. In 2011, schematic design started with all areas surveyed and designed with the utmost care and detail. The conversion back to a single family home gave way for new ideas and modern amenities while maintaining the historical character. The most prominent interior feature is the central elliptical stair with dome skylight. Schematic design to post-construction was four years.

More about the designer: Magness Design began in 2010, with a focus on residential design. After working within the industry for ten years, Sarah created a design company that would cater to the individual needs of each client and be actively involved for the entire design process from schematics to post- construction. Every client is different and her approach to each project is to guide the client through the process, but to make their house their home, with their personal aesthetic. “I have a great sense of pride to know I have fulfilled my client’s dreams for their homes.”
