KCH&G 2010 Home of the Year
For a nearly 9,000-square-foot house, our “best in show” winner could never be described as ostentatious, pretentious or cavernous.
“It’s grand but doesn’t feel overwhelming,” says architect Bruce Wendlandt.
Interior designer Kurt Knapstein worked with the homeowners to make the house’s style uniquely theirs. “It’s traditional but fresh and upbeat,” he describes. His work is highlighted by gracious furniture, gorgeous draperies, luxurious fabrics, and subtle and delightfully surprising choices in wallpaper, light fixtures and art. If one pays attention, frogs, turtles, butterflies and horses show up throughout the house.
