Owner and designer Julie Hayes took this Crestwood mid-century modern into the new century with style and ease.
Built in 1939, art deco elements blend seamlessly with a chic and modern attitude. The home is understated although it has been completely updated. It boasts sleek lines but is soft rather than stark. Bold color choices flow through every room, yet mesh with the calming relaxation of an entirely neutral palette. It sounds like a contradiction, but the choices are effective.
A creative color palette adds interest to every room, but a constant thread of lime green ties the floorplan together. The signature color is most noticeable in the old-school meets chef’s-dream of a kitchen. Vintage inspired milk glass hanging pendant lights illuminate the gleaming and functional stainless steel central island and white marble surfaces. Top of the line equipment like the Thermador range, Sub-Zero refrigerator and KitchenAid ice maker in stainless steel also reflect light and tie the space together.
The formal living room has French doors flanking the fireplace. The room is filled with light, which showcases the owner’s colorful modern art collection. This living area flows directly into the spacious formal dining room, with massive windows framed by floor to ceiling drapes and views to the inviting pool beyond.
Also on the ground level is the master bedroom suite. It features a wall of windows, softened by luxurious drapes, and offers a different view of the pool. An informal chandelier hangs in the center. The room feels like a vacation retreat.
His and hers separate vanities are hallmarks of the oversized master bath along with a well-organized walk-in closet. The focal point of the bath, however, is the large soaking tub with marble surround, and separated glass and marble shower enclosure.
A skylight bathes the wooden staircase leading to the second floor. Additional bedrooms are generously sized, and impressively decorated. One is painted a robin’s egg hue; another has a subtle denim blue.
The pool is rectangular, perfect for lap swimming and leisure. Boxwoods, manicured hedge rows and mature oaks lend to the cultivated landscaping. Crestwood is known for its varied architectural styles. This home is the perfect blend of vintage charm and ultra-modern amenities.
