Detail of original estate home

Brook Hills
White Plains, New York
completed 1990

Brook Hills is a luxury residential development on a former estate in White Plains, NY. The clients were descendants of the estate’s founder and wanted to develop the property while maintaining the grandeur of the original house and buildings. The solution involved siting the buildings in the background of the estate house, and consideration of a unique building type: the estate unit – large building form that reflects the massing and detailing of the original estate house. Each building contains four fee-simple owned units with attached garages and views of the grounds. The density of the units permits generous spacing between buildings, providing a unique siting for each.
