COURTYARD AND POOL: Tupper Lake, NY
What do you do with an historic carriage house with over 5000 sf and 25’ high ceilings in the oldest gated community in America? Have fun!
Our clients bought a building with half of the carriage house developed into a duplex two-bedroom apartment resembling a Tribeca loft. They wanted a home with a pool, a guest suite, and a basketball court. No problem.
The original building had a large central entry which we converted into an area for entertaining and for their two children to ride scooters and bikes during bad weather. On the side of the entrance with the “loft” apartment, we added bathrooms and a guest room and brought light into the middle. On the other side of the entry we created an indoor pool with a spa. The half-court basketball court was behind the entry allowing the kids to have friends over for a friendly game without invading the house!
