This $5.45M Carroll Gardens Townhome Masterfully Blends the Past and Present

There’s a one-of-a-kind townhome up for sale in Brooklyn’s posh Carroll Gardens neighborhood. Marketed by Lindsay Barton Barrett, Christina Abad and Cristina Criado with Douglas Elliman, the stunning home is asking $5,450,000, and it offers both classic touches and modern-day amenities.

Located at 356 Sackett Street, flanked by Court and Smith streets, the four-bedroom, four-bathroom townhouse was recently thoroughly renovated. Architects were able to preserve the property’s original details, such as tin ceilings, marble fireplace surrounds and ornate moldings, and more. However, the gut renovation also brought contemporary upgrades to please the modern homebuyer. Domino and Refinery29 have even featured the mint-condition, 22-foot-wide showplace for their readers.

The home’s parlor level features formal living spaces ideal for entertaining friends and family.

A foyer opens up to a light-filled living room that’s paved in wide-plank hardwood and features 11-foot high ceilings. There’s also a grand dining room with painted tin ceilings, a fireplace, and designer lighting.

The parlor level also includes a state-of-the-art kitchen that features premium stainless steel appliances, including a six-burner, fully vented Wolf range, a drawer microwave, dishwasher and even a wine refrigerator. Last but not least, this level also includes a powder room and coat closet for ‘effortless entertaining.’

Outside the kitchen, you’ll find a small deck that leads out into the lush garden that is decked out with large bluestone pavers, private fencing and professional landscaping. 

The garden level of this Carroll Gardens townhome features a living room with a wet bar/kitchenette and a bright sunroom, which currently serves as a gym overlooking the garden. 

The third floor houses the master suite, which offers garden views, a spa bath with a clawfoot tub and a frameless glass shower. Here, you also get a spacious walk-in closet, and an adjoining bedroom that would make an ideal nursery, study or home office. 

That’s not it, though. There are three additional bedrooms above the master suite, complete with a playroom/den, as well as another bathroom and a large laundry room. Last but not least, the basement level provides 8-foot ceilings and a massive storage closet, as well as a huge flexible rec room.

The building itself has been upgraded in the recent renovation effort. Updates include a full restoration of the brick and brownstone facade, a new wrought iron gate, and a rebuilt lower vestibule.

Matthew McConaughey Pays $7.8M for a Chic Beach Property in Hawaii

It’s hard to think of a better place to hang out for Matthew McConaughey than the Kaupulehu Residence—a brand-new $7,845,000 home on the big island of Hawaii.

Brimming with “barefoot elegance,” the home is part of the Kukio Beach and Golf Club community in Kailua-Kona, according to the listing.

The residence features six bedrooms and 6.5 baths, and the McConaughey family will be its first official residents after the purchase in December 2020.

Esperanza Residence LLC bought the 1-acre lot for $1.65 million in 2018 and invested nearly $3.8 million into the construction of the home. It was designed by Kona architect Paul Bleck.

High-quality finishes in the home include floors of La Paz stone and wide-plank oak, and surfaces of handcarved limestone, Italian Calacatta marble, and quartzite.

There is also extensive custom woodwork, including teak cabinets, oversized cedar sliding doors, and the cedar ceiling in the lanai.

The luxe home is full of doubles, including two primary suites, two pools, two outdoor fire pits, and the indoor and outdoor kitchens.

This Stunning Former East Village Synagogue is Now Seeking Renters

One of the most unique and architecturally distinct homes in all of New York City is looking for new tenants.

A historic East Village synagogue that was converted into a sun-drenched townhouse 15 years ago has just resurfaced on the market as a $30k rental — and it’s a sight to be seen.

The former synagogue was once known as the 8th Street Shul and served the Lower East Side’s Jewish community. The building managed to survive two fires in the past century, but unresolved ownership issues let it go unattended for years. That was until 2005, when the building was sold to a real estate developer that revamped the property and turned it into an upscale private residence.

It’s now a breathtaking four-story home with impeccable interiors, dramatic 22′ ceilings, and walls of exposed brick and wood, specially designed for displaying artwork. The home is downright gorgeous, and comes fully furnished.

With a dramatic living area — featuring 22′ cathedral ceilings, floor-to-ceiling walls of restored brick (east) and Wenge wood paneling (west), as well as a Cantilever balcony with a built-in projector for showcasing art — the former synagogue has been re-imagined as a space for art lovers, which only doubles down on the space being an art piece in itself.

The luxury rental comes with 4 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, and 3 wonderful outdoor terraces. Brought to the finest modern standards, the former synagogue features an expansive chef’s kitchen with Italian granite counters, a 20′ island, floor-to-ceiling custom-built Wenge cabinets, upscale appliances that cover every possible need, and some nice bonuses (like a built-in temperature/humidity-controlled wine cooler).

There’s also a separate elegant dining area with a restored 19th Century backlit Star of David. On the 3rd level, there’s a gorgeous library with custom-built floor-to-ceiling wood bookshelves, an Italian marble fireplace and a wet sink/wet bar.

The 4th story has a fairly unique floor-to-ceiling glass hallway and secluded master bedroom, fitted with a custom-built working fireplace, huge walk-in closet, and opulent master bath packed with everything from an oversized Jacuzzi tub, to walk-in shower with steam unit, rain shower, waterfall and separate hand-held shower. To top that off, there’s also a hot tub that fits 8 people out on the master terrace.

The stunning townhouse is being offered fully furnished, and the listing clearly specifies that it’s looking for short-term renters (9 months max). Those interested in the 30,000/mo rental should contact listing agents Jessica Swersey or Jamie Fedorko, both with Warburg Realty.

Fun fact: The former synagogue even had a brief stint in a movie (though it’s worth noting that this was prior to its transformation), as the building was featured in Darren Aronofsky’s 1998 psychological thriller Pi.

If you’ve ever dreamed of sharing a zip code with your favorite music and movie stars, this is your chance to make that dream come true. There’s a fabulous home for sale in Beverly Hills that embodies all the glamour and luxury of Hollywood, and it comes with a $9,995,000 price tag (and a 90210 address).

The fabulous property, featured in the LA Times as their Home of the Week, has four bedrooms, five bathrooms, and comes with a long list of cool amenities. One of them is the fact that Elton John lives nearby, so you’ll be in good company should you move here. But this property has a lot more to offer other than just proximity to your favorite celebrities.

The 5,300-square-foot home lies on a massive, 20,711-square-foot lot, and it was carefully built to make the most of the sweeping ocean and city views. The effort has definitely paid off, as the views are simply breathtaking. 

The 1961-built home sits on its very own promontory, which covers nearly half an acre, and is decked out with state-of-the-art amenities inside and out — some likely hand-picked by the media executive himself, particularly on the tech side of things.

The house has 42 custom Fleetwood doors and windows, and comes with a plethora of smart home technologies. These include property-wide audio, video, and lighting systems; a hospital-grade HEPA and UV air purification system; a three-car garage with two electric car rapid charges; drought-tolerant landscaping; and solar-powered electricity throughout. 

Besides the ultra-modern smart home features, this Beverly Hills abode also comes with a long list of classic luxurious amenities. There’s a gourmet eat-in kitchen with marble countertops, Thermador appliances, and a large island that flows into the living room. Here, you’ll find natural colors, beautiful high ceilings, and a cozy fireplace to snuggle up to on cold nights.

The kitchen, living room and dining room boast floor-to-ceiling glass windows that open to the gorgeous backyard. Here, you’ll find an outdoor dining area, a beautiful lounge area, and an infinity pool. It’s basically the perfect place to spend summer evenings, either relaxing with family or entertaining guests.

The master bedroom features new hardwood floors, a home office, spacious dual closets, as well as a home gym with glass walls overlooking the city and ocean (which sounds like the perfect motivation to finally start working out).

All of the four bedrooms inside this Beverly Hills home are en-suite, and feature marble baths with Waterworks faucets and fittings. There’s also a library with a bar, a den, and a family room. 

Everything has been carefully thought out both inside and outside this home. Each room is impeccable from an interior design standpoint, boasting a fresh, modern, yet timeless decor. The spaces are airy and flooded with natural light, and the views are magnificent from all angles. 

The property is listed with Juliette Hohnen of Douglas Elliman Real Estate.

Why I Love Wide Plank Hardwood Flooring and Why You Should Too

Why I Love Wide Plank Hardwood Flooring and Why You Should Too on Apt34

I’ve long had a love affair with wide plank hardwood flooring. I can’t actually pinpoint when the look seeped into my consciousness. I suspect it started when I began voraciously collecting European design magazines, as wide plank hardwood flooring is a mainstay of European and specifically Scandinavian design. Yet for so long wide plank floors were only used in “rustic” design in the United States. But I am the first to say that wide plank hardwood flooring is not only modern but timeless. I so firmly believe this, I made the decision from day one that I would put a wider plank hardwood throughout my own house!

Five years later, I only wish I’d know about Carlisle Wide Plank Floors when we were in the middle of our renovations. Going with a company like Carlisle Wide Plank Floors would have made my life so much simpler. They literally are your one-stop-shop for wide plank hardwood flooring – offering different wood species, various stains, and the ability to customize just about everything – you can find virtually any look you’re going for.

Why I Love Wide Plank Hardwood Flooring and Why You Should Too on Apt34

I’m particularly smitten with white oak. White oak wears incredibly well, can take a variety of stains and will blend seamlessly with the look of any home. The typically lighter hue helps make spaces feel open, brighter and bigger. And while you think light floors would show dirt, dust, dander, pet hair and scratches, that all shows much more on dark floors. Trust me, I’ve had dark floors and it was not so fun.

A wonderful example of white oak wide plank flooring is in the stunning modern kitchen and dining space pictured above. I am obsessed with the idea of a floating kitchen – one that simply exists in the space – rather than being a room unto itself. The wide plank floors from Carlisle offer beautiful sweeping movement across the room without feeling busy or distracting.

I’m also often asked if you can/should mix wood tones in your home. The answer is a resounding yes and that kitchen is another excellent example of why multiple wood tones work so well together. The darker woods used for the cabinetry and storage area add more warmth that plays off the white oak floor while the black accents throughout – chair backs, counters, light fixture, and the stove hood – serve to anchor everything.

Why I Love Wide Plank Hardwood Flooring and Why You Should Too on Apt34

In contrast, the wide plank floor used in this kitchen offers a more casual feel to what would otherwise be a very classic all-white kitchen. The floors selected here are quartersawn, meaning they’re cut to enhance the natural grain and showcase the knots and texture found in the wood. A minimal, matte stain was used, giving the wood a natural look. The wide plank floor is the perfect complement to the modern stools, stretches of classic marble and brass hardware used in the space.

Why I Love Wide Plank Hardwood Flooring and Why You Should Too on Apt34 Why I Love Wide Plank Hardwood Flooring and Why You Should Too on Apt34

If you’re looking to make an update to your home and want an elegant, timeless yet decidedly modern style, I strongly suggest considering wide plank hardwood flooring. I know I’ll put wide plank flooring in any home I do in the future (can you tell I’m itching for a new project!).

Actors Andy Favreau and Molly McQueen unload WeHo bungalow

Husband-and-wife actors Andy Favreau and Molly McQueen made quick work of their West Hollywood home sale, selling the Spanish-style bungalow for $2.15 million and finding a buyer just four days after listing.

McQueen, granddaughter of the late Oscar-nominated movie star Steve McQueen, paid about $1.075 million for the property a decade ago, records show.

Remodeled during their stay, the leafy retreat is tucked between Melrose Avenue and Beverly Boulevard. It was built in the 1920s, but the recent changes brought updated style such as modern fixtures and clean lines throughout the cozy 1,120-square-foot interior.

An exterior of white stucco and clay tile enters to an open floor plan with two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a sky-lit living room and marble kitchen. French doors lead to the backyard, where olive and lemon trees surround a terracotta tile patio with a fire pit. Off to the side, the two-car garage has been converted into a gym.

Over the last few years, Favreau has starred in sitcoms such as “Single Parents,” “Champions” and “The Mick,” as well as the drama series “Little Fires Everywhere” and “Animal Kingdom.”

McQueen’s credits include “Community” and “Reasons I Don’t Have a Boyfriend.”

Elizabeth Puro of Douglas Elliman held the listing. Patrick Fogarty of Hilton & Hyland represented the buyer.

Creating photo-worthy homes on a budget – Hometown Focus

Themed canisters and moving cutting boards to the countertop are easy ways to update your kitchen. Submitted photo.

I love harvesting new home decor ideas from

Pinterest and Instagram. Skimming images of high-end houses can be incredibly inspiring—assuming you’re in the right mood. My favorite part is zooming in on pictures to dissect what exactly made it pop. Sometimes the answer is predictable and expensive, like granite countertops or marble floors. Fair enough. But more often it is the small details that many of us skip or don’t think of when we glance around or own spaces.

I’ve compiled a list of ideas you can try to upgrade various rooms of your home without blowing your budget.

Wood cutting boards. Handsome and practical, wood cutting boards are the perfect way to incorporate soft, natural elements into your kitchen. Don’t hide them in the cupboard. Instead, lean them upright on your countertop against the backsplash for an eye-catching look. Own multiple sizes? Lean the largest in the back and stack one or two in front of it. My personal favorite is the round board with multi-dimensional shades and wood grains.

 

 

Canisters. Most canisters you find on store shelves are designed to blend into the background. In other words, they’re boring. No matter what theme your kitchen is, the right canister set will give your kitchen a more finished look. Don’t settle for the first set you find. Shop around for the style that best suits your home. After all, it will be with you for many years to come.

Paint the brick fireplace. It’s easy to feel your decorating options are limited when you have a brick fireplace trapped in a different era. Luckily there are durable paints specially designed for bringing that brick into modern times. It will require some serious cleaning and a few coats of paint slinging, but the end result is nothing short of show-stopping.

Paint the grout. Cleaning grout is the worst, isn’t it? The one time I used a light grout on the floor, I swore it would be the last. Today, some savvy homeowners have discovered a special polyblend grout paint that adds color while also acting as a sealer. It’s a slow process, sure, but so is scrubbing dirty grout every few months.

Battery-operated sconces. Wouldn’t a few sconces on each side of your wall art look amazing? I’ve had this thought on numerous occasions but thought it was a pipedream—then I discovered battery-operated sconces online. While the selection is limited, these light-weight accents come in traditional designs with modern, colorchanging LEDs and are great for adding elegance and lighting dim areas.

Seasonal throw pillowcases. We’ve all seen the $30 holiday-themed pillows, but that’s a lot of money for something that will be stored 90 percent of the time. That’s why I decided to refurbish my old pillows by sewing my own cases. You can also purchase throw pillowcases online for a fraction of the price you’ll find in most stores. My favorite is the inexpensive holiday multipack. It’s surprisingly cheap to maintain a festive, high-end look year-round by merely swapping out cases a few times a year.

Seasonal throw blankets. Like throw pillows, swapping out different coverings for each season sounds expensive, but it doesn’t have to be. I’ve found that small fleece blankets are not only easy to come by, they’re also gentle on the budget. Each autumn, I look forward to draping my orange fleece over the couch and swapping it out for red at Christmas, then my white alpaca throw in winter and my plum velvet throw in summer. The blankets last longer because they’re not used as often, and I get to look forward to a continually refreshed look.

Mirror frames. Three homes I’ve lived in had builder-grade mirrors attached to the walls with plastic hangers.

This creates an unfinished feeling, no matter what the rest of your home looks like. Rather than replace the mirrors, I suggest buying or build wood frames. A plus for going the DIY route is tailoring the paint or stain them to match the rest of your decor.

Decorative pots. Plants are a great way to add vibrancy to any room, but many overlook the pot itself. An under-sized or off-colored pot can undermine your design and make it look cluttered, while one that matches the room’s theme can make it pop. I love seeing people flex their DIY muscles by painting their own designs.

Open shelves. Simple and affordable, open-face shelves are a foolproof way to dress up any wall with minimal installation required. And don’t worry about buying all new knick-knacks. Take the less is more approach by stacking a few of your favorite books and candles, or perhaps a small plant or picture frame.

‘The Shield’ Actor Walton Goggins Lists His Quaint 1920s Home for Sale

Walton Goggins is selling his Los Angeles home, a lovely 5-bedroom home tucked behind dense landscaping just above Hollywood Boulevard. The actor, known for his prominent roles in The Shield, Sons of Anarchy, Justified or Django Unchained and now the star of CBS’s heartwarming sitcom The Unicorn, bought the home back in 2010, when he was getting ready to welcome his son Augustus, now 10.

The two-story brick home has both French and Spanish touches as well as beautiful, eclectic interiors that combine vintage décor and boho chic influences with modern elements. The results are so spectacular that the home caught the eye of over 20 publications, with Architectural Digest, Maison Du Monde or GQ all featuring it in the past. Now, Goggins is looking to sell the charming home for $3.35 million and has enlisted the help of Josh Myler of The Agency to find a buyer.

Stylish vintage interiors pay tribute to the roaring 20s

Originally designed and built by Harold O. Sexsmith in 1927, Goggins’ home retains many of its original features. From the original coffered front door to the hardwood floors, or the arched openings to the casement windows, every detail has been meticulously restored, maintaining the original charm, warmth, and essence of the 1920s.

The foyer that welcomes visitors is accentuated by original period tile floors. To the left, there’s a stylish and sophisticated formal living room, whose surrounding windows and overall scale allow light in from every side. The most striking elements in this room are an oversized, original stone wood-burning fireplace and floor-to-ceiling bookshelves that line one of the walls.

The living room opens to indoor/outdoor dualling lounges, which are connected by French doors and offer privacy for more intimate gatherings. In fact, the whole house is filled with comfy gathering places, both indoors and out.

 “My philosophy is a person shouldn’t have to take more than six or eight steps without having an opportunity to sit down for a conversation to begin,” the actor once told a GQ reporter that toured his home.

A wonderfully elegant kitchen

The main floor is completed by a fully equipped eat-in chef’s kitchen with wood and marble open shelving, punctuated by elegant brass fixtures that complement the rich, dark wood cabinets. The actor’s kitchen features a lovely dining area that, just like the living room, is surrounded by top-to-bottom bookshelves that complete the inviting, bohemian look. Next to the kitchen, there’s also a large pantry with accompanying laundry facilities.

The bedrooms are bright and inviting

On the main level, there’s also a guest bedroom with a full en-suite bathroom. But the bulk of the sleeping quarters are on the second level, where there’s a primary suite (boasting a chic bathroom and large walk-in closet) and two additional guest bedrooms and a bathroom.

Walton Goggins’ retro home office

One of the most eye-grabbing rooms of this celebrity house is the home office, with its distinctive retro style and vintage furniture. With big windows inviting plenty of natural light in, the actor’s office also has a comfy seating area and a wall made entirely out of corkboard, perfect for memorabilia or for staying organized with work files and charts.

Stepping outside to a whimsical backyard

In line with the overall romantic feel of the European-inspired home, the outdoor area is whimsical and inviting, with a large swimming pool that is framed by citrus fruit trees and string lights. Since the actor finds gathering spaces to be of utmost importance, the quiet, private backyard features two outdoor dining areas, and extra seating set around a fire pit.
