Today’s Swamplot Sponsor of the Day: the new-construction residence at 810 Ralfallen St. in the Heights. Thank you for supporting this site!
Do you hear this home calling you? The brand-new 4-bedroom at 810 Ralfallen was recently completed by the Heights’s own Icon Home. The company’s name signals its inspiration: iconic architectural styles — such as Greek Revival and American Farmhouse — which the builder adapts to contemporary sensibilities.
Beyond the carefully ordered façade is an open layout with an emphasis on entertaining: the formal dining room, for example, has its own serving bar with wine fridge. Beyond is a view into the family room, a few steps down, with 12-ft. ceilings, the kitchen open to it, and floor-to-ceiling built-ins surrounding a marble fireplace. The family room opens directly onto a carefully crafted room for outdoor living — dubbed the loggia — which is sheltered by a vaulted ceiling, and appointed with a masonry fireplace, a custom grill and kitchenette, and wood shutters. Its one open side leads into a yard opposite the kitchen.
Other spaces in the home await interpretation: A first-floor room off the foyer could be a study or sitting room; a cathedral-ceilinged flex space upstairs could be a gameroom or fifth bedroom. There are 4 bathrooms and 1 half-bath — including one you can get to directly from the back loggia.
Other new Icon Home constructions in the Heights area offer variations on 810 Ralfallen’s sensibility: 2023 Cortlandt sports a little more Greek Revival styling on its front, while the home at 523 E. 23rd St. features a courtyard with multiple points of entry through the living area. All 3 are listed by Bill Baldwin and Boulevard Realty. If you like what you’ve seen and heard about it here, do poke through the 810 Ralfallen property website for more photos and details.
