About 2729 Elmwood Avenue

Recently featured in Architectural Digest (September 2021) as a sophisticated example of modern sustainability, 2729 Elmwood is an architectural masterpiece in the heart of the coveted Elmwood. Originally known as the Cairns House, and designed by renowned architect Walter J. Ratliff, the 5432 square foot, 6BD/5.5BA Beaux Arts and Crafts home is the essence of 1920s elegance blended with modern convenience. The personal residence of distinguished NYC architects, the home has undergone an MN Builders +/- $1.5M modern renovation that thoughtfully honors Ratcliff’s original work, retaining the arts and crafts detailing that blends sumptuously with stylish modern updates including a sleek chef’s kitchen with breakfast room and butler's pantry, opulent modern baths, smart technologies, and a robust state-of-the-art solar and Tesla Powerwall battery system.
