Greek Revival Residence

Greek Revival Residence


A new-old house, lovingly detailed in the Greek Revival style, is created for a young family in Riverdale. Allusions to literary and architectural history infuse this richly appointed two-store reconstruction of a nondescript 1950’s ranch. A gracious Doric front porch leads into a foyer and dramatic three-story-high, sky-lit stair hall. Meticulously detailed woodwork graces both the exterior and interior with Greek Ionic and Corinthian columns at the stair hall, a custom mantel piece and decorative window in the living room, a vaulted, paneled dining room, and custom enabled wood kitchen cabinets. Antique stained glass and art tiles complement the owners’ extensive collection of Asian antiques and artwork created by family members. Five bedrooms and a private master study fill the second floor.
