Case study: Tuxedo ParkBy Berit Griffin, Marvin Windows
Overlooking Tuxedo Lake, just north of Manhattan, this 9000-square-foot French Chateau-style home was constructed on the site of a residence that burned to the ground in the 1920s. Raised up on old 30-foot-high rock retaining walls, the home was virtually built from the inside out.
Marvin Windows and Doors was selected to craft the wood windows because of the large range of sizes, styles and assemblies required.
Windows and doors are key to the look of this house: The 35-foot-high great room features French doors topped with transoms and three enormous arch-top windows angled to capture an amazing view of Tuxedo Lake. The dining room includes a circular Bay window and a radius wall in the rotunda area. A 6-foot circle window is located near the apex of the roof.
Marvin products used in Tuxedo Park include: French doors, round-top windows, transoms, casements and more!
