Park Avenue Pied-à-Terre Paints a Pretty Picture.

The homeowners thought they wanted to slow down and spread out, so they sold their Manhattan apartment and purchased a shingle-clad home on Long Island.

With the help of the couple’s trusted designer, they transformed a raw shell of an apartment on Park Avenue into a sumptuous and cozy pied-à-terre.
