Hudson Queen Anne
This remarkable Queen Anne home, commonly known as the William H. Phipps House, has served as a popular bed and breakfast for over 30 years. Our clients want to convert the stunning four story back to a single family home while ensuring she stands proudly for the next century.
The majority of the project will include restoration of the exterior's many intricate details — scallop shingles, dentil moldings, scrolled frieze boards, fluted posts, decorative panels and brackets, stained glass and bay windows — as well as refinishing original interior wood work, brass door hardware and Italian tile fireplace mantels. Small additions will also be added to the home to expand and modernize the kitchen.
The owners wish to complement the existing feel of the home with a transitional, yet artful, kitchen that matches the scale of the 'grand dame' while functioning for a modern family.
The space will remain open and bright with windows on three sides, glass doors, two islands, a built-in pantry, coffee bar, and adjacency to a new stair, desk, and large patio, grilling area, and screened veranda.
