Think modern architecture can’t observe pleasing proportions and effortlessly allude to a classical past? Have a look at 4050 Bunting Avenue. Its picture perfect, symmetrical façade is wrapped by a beautifully scaled low wall which emphasizes the buildings horizontals. Simplified pilasters support a clean entablature.
These elements combine to create a composition which harkens back to Art Deco pavilions of the 1920’s and 30’s, themselves echoing a remembered, 18th Century classical past. And there is the desirable North Hi Mount location.
The entrance is a bold and confident concrete composition. Observe the procession from steps to the front door. Even the geometry of the ironwork of the gate and balcony has been carefully considered.
The open entrance is defined only by the glass-screened staircase. Terrazzo floors bind the ground floor rooms of the spacious 5,436 residence.
The living room has scale and sweep. Ceilings soar to double height. The room is overlooked by a gallery. Natural, maple panels cover the fireplace wall.
The kitchen has the expected top of the line appliances and features two islands. Counter tops are of honed granite, adding a softening effect.
The downstairs master bedroom is warmed by wood floors and a view of an exterior courtyard. The beautiful master bath includes a garden tub, separate vanities, steam shower, and large custom closets. The additional two bedrooms are upstairs and have their own, attached baths.
A floating stone staircase ascends behind glass, to the second floor.
A gallery area creates a second informal living area. The window wall at the house’s front leads to a balcony. The space is solidified by a coffered ceiling.
Ideal for entertaining, the covered, exterior courtyard has a complete out door kitchen.
