New York City, Sep 11, 2019 (Issuewire.com) – Two homes showcasing the notable architectural design of Westchester County-based Sylvain Côté are available for sale in South Salem, a bucolic hamlet in the Town of Lewisboro in northern Westchester County. Located just a mile apart, the homes at 90 Spring Street and 14 Gilbert Street are on the market for $1.149 million and $1.325 million, respectively.

Côté, owner of Westchester Real Homes LLC, is known for his simple, sustainable designs that elegantly marry architectural flair with building science to give new life to older homes.

Originally built in 1812, the three-bedroom timber-framed farmhouse on Spring Street was recently transformed to a smart home that seamlessly incorporates old housebuilding techniques. It highlights both vintage framing methods and state-of-the-art mechanical systems, and includes the dramatic reuse of wood reclaimed and repurposed from the demolition. It boasts an open floor plan with a deconstructed kitchen and living and dining space focuses around a redesigned artisanal stone fireplace. The home also has dual master suites and a third suite well positioned for a home office.

The three-bedroom Truesdale Lake beach house on Gilbert Street has its own private dock. Completely rebuilt during a multi-year process that began in 2012, it was named the best renovation nationally in 2015 by Green Builder Magazine. The award, based on voting by builders, architects and design professionals who measure green residential building and responsible growth, was “very flattering,” Côté said.

The home offers an eco-friendly LEED Platinum Certification of 90 and Energy Star Certified HERS rating of 30. It also features antique wood beams and posts reclaimed from an old local barn and original fir flooring repurposed from the demolition. The main level has a great room with a pass-through fireplace t the dining and living areas. Upstairs, the master suite includes a two-sided gas fireplace, spa bath and private lake-side balcony.

“The homeowners restored both properties with the greatest attention to style, sustainability and detail. We were proud to partner with them to create magnificent homes individually crafted to provide all of the comfort, amenities, ease of use and energy efficiency anyone could desire,” Côté said.
