Staying true to the historic design elements of this 19th-century house, the owner partnered with design-duo Portmanteau New York to create a bright and inviting home away from home. Vintage furniture pieces were sourced locally and from abroad with original artworks mingled among the mid-century decor.The Alderman sleeps up to 8 guests, with 4 beds spread across 3 floors. See below for a brief description of the rooms and spaces in the home:
This oversized bedroom with Southwestern exposure was designed with the intent of creating a studio vibe, allowing for spacious sleep + work accommodations, all in the same room. The Gossamer Room is centered around original home design elements such as the pressed tin ceiling, wide-plank pine floors, and the masonry brick fireplace. Rest easy on a Casper mattress nestled on a West Elm bed frame. Work from home with ease at the 1960s industrial desk nestled between two large windows offering a view of the historic block.
Drawing inspiration from the calming, centering effects of sage, the northeast-facing bedroom will allow residents to unwind and reflect with an overhead view of the private garden located just out of the window. The original wide plank pine floors and brickwork pair perfectly with a full-size West Elm spindled bed housing a Casper mattress, and with walls that are adorned with vintage artwork.
The bathroom offers a serene moment overlooking the garden. Have a soak in the original porcelain + cast iron tub, or escape under the chrome rainfall shower. The Water Closet is also outfitted with a Washer/Dryer unit for guest usage.
The dining space is centered around a farm table paired with 1960s Arkana tulip chairs, set against a metal bar cart decked out with vintage barware ready for your favorite cocktail. The kitchen is set up to indulge those ambitious recipes you’ve been waiting to try. Fully equipped with ample counter space, a gas-range stove, and a full-size fridge.
This separate unit located on the second floor of the house is designed with a modernized industrial vibe. The living space, which runs the entirety of the floor, offers queen-size accommodations (Tuft and Needle mattress), a separate kitchen equipped with a gas-range stove, counter seating, and a private full bathroom. Work from the office soaked in natural light at a live edge wood desk and a Salvatore Leone bentwood chair. The owner’s love for music is infused in the design of the main room and junior office, with guitars hanging on the walls. The Loft sleeps up to two guests.
