The Cumberland Townhouse #2 is located in the historic district of Ft Greene, Brooklyn. The project included a significant, 3-story addition to the rear of the building and was a complete gut including all new heating, cooling, plumbing, electrical and layout. The entire exterior of the building was restored and the rear addition was designed to meet the NYC Landmark Preservation Committee's standards and approval.
All windows throughout the original house were replaced and the addition facing the garden received custom-designed steel windows. The top of the 3-story addition provides a sizable terrace off of the top floor bedroom at the garden side of the building.
New finishes were installed throughout the house and historic details were restored and recreated to mesh seamlessly with all intact and preserved historic architectural details.
