Hudson House in Ardsley

Ardsley, NY

Suburban Residence
1 floor

A suburban home in the village of Ardsley, New York overlooking the Hudson River. Hudson house was built to provide a country escape from the city for the wealthy just up the Hudson on Cornelius Vanderbilt’s New York Central Rail Road. The station at Ardsley-On-Hudson has inside access to a locked and covered private walkway leading directly to the building entry & elevators. The young couple wanted to maximize the views to the River & extraordinary light that pervades this special location.

DESIGN

The modest home consists of a living room leading to two private chambers, a den, a kitchen & a dining alcove. The entire apartment is designed as an open floor plan. Furthermore, all the spaces are divided by a series of arches, allowing for privacy along with visual connectivity. At the same time, allowing light & wind from the West to travel throughout the house. The kitchen has low double sided glass storage & leads to a casual dining nook. The den, with informal seating and bookshelves, ties the kitchen to the living areas.

The palette of the house is warm. Consequently, the sun bright yellow wall tone, unique fixtures, and warm wood floors make for a sparkling residence, ideal for a couple.
