Scope of Services:
586 Park Avenue in Montclair, New Jersey is located on a private cul-de-sac with five other residences which were constructed in the 1930s in a popular style of the time, Tudor Revival. These quaint residences set the architectural vocabulary for 586 Park Street which was designed to both complement the neighboring residences while also meeting the needs of today's homeowner. Clapboard siding and stucco were used on the exterior so the house fit within its wooded surroundings which includes a small stream that runs through the backyard of the house. The exterior architectural vocabulary that reflects the Tudor Revival style includes decorative half-timbering, a steeply pitched roof, a prominent cross gable, and tall, multi-paned windows which provide visual variety from the street.
The 6,200 square foot home is a spacious residence providing all the amenities including five bedrooms (including a master bedroom featuring a full bath, dressing room, fireplace and sitting room), a formal dining and living rooms, as well as a full kitchen, family room, breakfast room and library. A conservatory, laundry room, media room and office are also provided on the second and third floor levels. The lead designer for this project was C.E. John Way, AIA.
