25 May Westchester builder takes a fashion-forward approach
In a competitive market where even en vogue new construction can seem derivative, builders are challenged to be bold, unique, different. In Rye, Georgio Home excels effortlessly.
From his company’s headquarters on Theodore Fremd Avenue, it’s immediately clear Robert Georgio is no ordinary developer. A born aesthete, he turned a career in fashion design and retail, working with some of the biggest names in the business, into a first-class luxury home building brand. Georgio’s portfolio of companies additionally includes a high-end cabinet business and an interior design arm run by his wife, Patricia, whose in-demand eye commands a booked solid schedule.
The Georgio Home showroom seems more Franklin Street or Worth Avenue than Westchester, capturing a distinct cosmopolitan sensibility that speaks to discerning, design-conscious clients in a way a select few can. It’s no more evident than the Georgio’s latest and current offerings:
PURCHASE | 7 Cedar Lane
At 7 Cedar, resort-like amenities conspire with custom finishes, one-of-a-kind spaces and the simple pleasures of space. To call it fully loaded is an understatement. The home showcases every possible consideration for luxury living within an easy commute of Manhattan, from a Christopher Peacock-designed chef’s kitchen to a sophisticated master suite with tray ceilings, dual dressing closets and a spa bath. There’s a gym-quality exercise room, home theater, custom wine cellar and a working artist’s studio with storage. Verdant plantings surround a true entertainer’s backyard with a Viking grill station, pergola-topped bar, 42′ Waters Edge pool and spacious stone terraces.
RYE | 131 Apawamis Avenue
Inspired by the graceful shingle-style homes of the Hamptons, this new construction in Rye stuns with everything today’s buyer demands. A two-exposure family room with centered fireplace is the heart of the home, with French doors leading outside to a spacious entertaining terrace. There’s also a gourmet kitchen, garaging for two cars and a finished lower level with au pair suite.
HARRISON | 57 Rye Ridge Road
Set back on 1.69 acres at the end of a horseshoe drive, this nearly 10,000 square foot home is newly offered, enchanting all who enter from its stone-and-shingle exterior in. The kitchen stuns with Calcutta gold and Carrara marble, Georgio Home bespoke cabinetry and top-of-the-line appliances like SubZero, Wolf and Miele. Incredibly standout is a three-exposure sun room with 15′ ceilings.
