Barberry Dr. – Stevens Park Village
The Stevens Park Village neighborhood is the location of this home, which is a cottage built in the 1940s. It has 1,250 square-feet and originally had the typical 2 bedrooms and one bath layout of the post-war era. In the January edition of D Magazine, this house was featured in a multi-page write up and called a “small marvel”. The owners are professional designers and decorators who at first thought to restore a deteriorated house to sell, but after using their expertise to produce such a delightful product, decided that it was their dream home and kept it for themselves.
On entering the living room, you will notice that it is filled with art, some of which was painted by one of the owners. The walls are covered with grass cloth and the ceiling is painted Wyeth blue. The original fire place is still there, but a beautiful sculptured tile surround is now installed. Those tiles came from a job and as found objects joined many others used throughout the home by the practical owners.
