Suite 2, Brassworks on Grove, 105 Grove St. Montclair, NJ 07042
The magic is in the little details of this renovation of a turn of the century home in Florham Park. Additions included a support kitchen, an exercise room, a full bathroom, and an executive home office, as well as a pool pavilion with a fireplace. They were all finished to match the existing exterior of slate roofing, pecky cypress trim and window, and French doors. The wood motif in the interior goes from a fresh white near the passage to the backyard to homey rustic grays and browns in the kitchen and dining areas, as well as the bathroom. The family room mixes warm red paisley and muted blue tones to match the accents. The sprawling backyard also houses an outdoor grill and dining area, while a gated, heated, motor court was also built for the three-car garage.
