Private Home, Lake Mahopac NY
Lake Mahopac, New York
Starting as a summer residence, the dwelling was redesigned and expanded to suit the contemporary needs of its current owners.
The design was developed to allow the owner, their family and guests to use the home as a summer recreation retreat but also to allow the owner's quiet enjoyment when they are there by themselves on weekends all year round. The house was significantly expanded but retains the charm of the original design and little was changed on the front of the house. A second floor was added for guest rooms, and a new patio was constructed in the rear for outdoor enjoyment. A private study, a new master bath, and spaces for entertainment were also added on the main level. Exterior materials were selected to blend with the original house. Members of Studio 5 Partnership worked together with Pat Valentine Ziv, Interior Designers, and the owners, on the development of the interior.
