For the 45th Annual Kips Bay Show House, the talented group of designers transformed a historic Manhattan town house, located at 125 East 65th Street.
The four-story, neo-Georgian style red brick home boasts charming views of townhouse gardens and nearby architectural cathedrals. Built in 1905, the grand residence was designed by world-renowned artist and architect, Charles A. Platt as a private home. The estate features original detailing including the paneling, fireplace mantel, painted beam ceiling and herringbone floor. In May, the sought-after home will invite twenty of the world’s leading interior designers to decorate individual rooms before opening to the exhibit public.
