Modern Rustic Luxury in Cornwall on Hudson, NY - Interior Design project by Duncan Avenue Design Studio

Welcome to the historic (circa 1870) home in the heart of the quaint Village of Cornwall on Hudson, NY. Completely reimagined by the award-winning Duncan Avenue Design Studio the home was transformed into architecturally inspiring yet energy efficient masterpiece. It was fully renovated with design, sustainability, functionality and comfort in mind. Contemporary open concept floorplan and two-story-high foyer bring an abundance of light in the space. Wake up to the sunrise shining through double glass doors on the east side of the house and watch the warm sunset rays shining through plenty of energy-efficient windows on the west. High-end finishes such as hardwood floors in 2 bedrooms upstairs, pet-friendly waterproof recycled vinyl on the main level, sustainable concrete countertops, wood kitchen cabinets, stainless steel appliances, and designer light fixtures are only a few of the updates along with a brand-new central HVAC system controlled by smart Nest thermostat with two-zone sensors. New plumbing, subfloors and insulation, as well as designer LED lighting, bring additional value and comfort for many years to come. The property features a beautiful and private deck overlooking wooded retreat property and mountain hills during the winter months. Front of the property features virtually maintenance-free eco-friendly Landida Landscape.

Front of the house features additional and brightly lit office space with an unobstructed view through an entire home all the way to the natural landscape on the back of the property. Energy Star equipped laundry is conveniently hidden behind custom-built barn door on the main level of the home, right next to the guest restroom.

Concrete Counter Tops.

This kitchen has a lot of character thanks to the sophisticated/industrial look of concrete countertops. They are not just trendy, but also environmentally-friendly. One of the unique characteristics of concrete is that this material will evolve and adopt character over time, so the appearance of your counters will improve with age. Concrete counters are durable and heat-resistant for all of you avid bakers out there. The material is non-toxic, does not emit VOCs unlike plastics/polymers and is a sustainable material, unlike granite or marble. Concrete is a friend of the environment in all stages of its life span, from raw material production to demolition, making it a natural choice for sustainable home construction.

Stainless Steel Energy Star Appliances.

Stainless Steel  Energy Star Appliances are an important accord in an overall symphony of this amazing and functional kitchen. They are positioned in the most efficient way to ensure an easy cooking process. The kitchen features range hood vented outside of the house and stylish yet environmentally-friendly electric range. Hudson Valley region energy providers offer an option to switch to 100% renewable electricity from wind and solar, so the electric range makes a lot of sense.

Hardwood cabinetry and decorative features

Compared to other building materials, wood leaves a smaller carbon footprint. When trees are sustainably harvested and manufactured into products, they continue to store carbon and keep it out of the atmosphere. One-half of the dry-weight of wood is carbon, so every time wood is used in furniture and other renovation projects, it serves as a carbon repository as well.
