The "captain's chair" in the corner of this traditional living room offers the best view in the house. This traditional Brooklyn townhouse overlooks New York Harbor and features carefully restored period details, like reclaimed antique heart pine flooring and cast iron radiators.
The goal for this Brooklyn townhouse was to create an open floor plan with a loft-like feel, taking advantage of the large, traditional windows that offer a view of the New York Harbor. The designer salvaged some original flooring and used additional wood from a salvage yard in upstate New York.
This historic home, originally built in the 1880s, has seven bedrooms, four stories and sits on over an acre of land in Sag Harbor, New York. Great care has been taken over the many years of the home's life to protect and restore its beautiful details.
Tell a story about the place you live. This bathroom is in the former whaling town of Sag Harbor, New York. The harpoons over the door and the blubber spade in the corner, along with an eel trap and shellfish basket, reflect the town’s history. “Make it a little tiny museum made of interesting objects,” says author Susan Sully.
