Beechmont Dr.; New Rochelle
Located on Merchants' Row, aptly named for the Bloomingdale, Macy, Saks and Gimbels families who had country estates located here, this stately home was built in 1927 for Earl Sams, the founder of the J.C. Penney department store. The current owner is only the third family to occupy this expansive Georgian Colonial, which was constructed around an Aeolian player pipe organ, a popular source of music in the 1920s for the well-to-do.
Right Path restored the existing windows by refinishing the sashes and frames and replaced broken glass with restorer glass to give the new windows the look of the originals.
Part of the process included the removal of lead paint, which is a critical step in ensuring the health and well-being of our clients. This involved creating a dust-proof barrier between the area where work was performed and the rest of the home. Protection was also applied over the floor to contain contaminants for easy disposal.
