We've planned a home that features a relaxed, easy-to-manage traditional look with a modern simplicity and an unfussy palette. It's a comfortable and livable home
Briarcliff Manor, NY (Vocus) September 28, 2010
The Club at Briarcliff Manor is bringing together an all-star team of some of the region’s leading interior designers to showcase their unique styles in decorating the model residences at this new $350M continuing care retirement community currently under development in Briarcliff Manor.
Bloomingdale’s Interior Design Studio, W.L. Landau - Ethan Allen and J.R. Cattington Interiors will each decorate one of the three model residences. The model residences, which are under construction, are scheduled to be completed in October.
“We’re delighted to assemble this team group of outstanding interior designers to showcase their styles in the décor and finishes of our new model residences. The extraordinary work of these three talented designer teams exemplifies the quality and excellence in design that we are offering at The Club,” said Matthew K. Phillips, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Integrated Development Group (IDG), which is developing The Club at Briarcliff Manor.
The three firms bring to The Club a wealth of interior design experience as well as their own signature styles.
Bloomingdale’s Interior Design Studio, located at Bloomingdale’s flagship store in Manhattan, has designed beautiful homes for New Yorkers for over fifty years. In decorating the two-bedroom, 2,226-square-foot Harrison townhome, Eileen Joyce, Operating Vice President of Interior Design for Bloomingdale’s, draws inspiration from the lush natural surroundings of The Club, focusing on colors of the fall and spring seasons. “The living room and guest bedroom are designed using natural tones of autumnal soft rusts, khaki greens and creamy ivories. These tones are complemented by warm antique bronzes and juxtaposed by cool polished chromes. The master bedroom is a refreshing and spritely color combination of spring greens and refreshing whites which are contrasted by deep dark rich woods,” she said.
W.L. Landau, an independent Ethan Allen retailer with multiple locations, is a second generation, family-owned-and-operated business with a 45-year association with Ethan Allen. W.L. Landau – Ethan Allen’s nationally recognized design team is decorating the two-bedroom, 2,234-square-foot Hastings model townhome. “We’ve planned a home that features a relaxed, easy-to-manage traditional look with a modern simplicity and an unfussy palette. It’s a comfortable and livable home,” said David Connolly, partner of W.L. Landau. “The silhouettes and finishes will be familiar and comforting but the fabrics are flexible neutrals with a light touch. It will be a signature Ethan Allen look – classic design with a modern perspective.”
J.R. Cattington Interiors, located just a few miles from The Club in the Village of Briarcliff Manor, has been recognized numerous times for their work in the New York Metropolitan area and in the luxury second home market in Florida.In its design of the one-bedroom, 1,104 square-foot Jefferson apartment-style residence, J.R. Cattington Interiors conveys a feeling that is contemporary yet very comfortable. “Walnut brown wood floors on a diagonal create an open spacious feeling. Neutral cool creams and beige with touches of blue and gray is the palette throughout. There is ample seating for entertaining. The master bedroom truly is an oasis. It’s all designed with clean simple uncluttered lines,” said Joseph Stabile, President of J.R. Cattington Interiors.
Located on a 59-acre wooded site overlooking the Hudson River where once stood the famed Briarcliff Lodge resort hotel and later the King’s College campus, The Club at Briarcliff Manor will feature 325 Independent Living residences in two “villages,” world-class amenities and services and a 60-unit Supportive Living Center where a licensed and professional staff will provide assisted living, memory support and skilled nursing care on-site 24 hours a day. The project broke ground in January 2010 on the first townhome building which will serve as an on-site Information & Design Center, with the three new model residences. The Center and furnished models are expected to open in October. The community is scheduled to open in 2013.
Amenities will include a full-service spa and salon; multiple dining venues; a state-of-the-art fitness center; Aquatics Center with heated indoor pool and whirlpool; Lodge Room with social space; outdoor tennis courts; private library; multi-media business center with wireless Internet; surround sound theater; 24-hour security; and extensive walking trails.
The Upper Village will enjoy Hudson river and New York City skyline views and feature Tudor-style buildings with 288 spacious one-, two and three-bedroom residences. The Lower Village will consist of 24 townhomes and 13 free-standing villa homes designed for today’s active adult lifestyle with first-floor master suites, attached two-car garages and an optional elevator. The townhomes and villas will enjoy views of the pond and large meadows. Perkins Eastman is the Architect for the Upper Village apartment homes and Sullivan Architecture is the Architect for the Townhome and Villa residences.
