408 Garden Lane

Lewiston

 

The Gardens at Oxbow is the first new home development of its kind in Western New York and is conveniently nestled in the historic Village of Lewiston.  The concept behind the development is based on the principles of the traditional neighborhood development (TND). This wave of new builds has become an increasingly popular trend in land planning designed to offer an alternative to conventional residential subdivisions.

Traditional neighborhoods create a cohesive place that restores community life, encourages a more “walkable” lifestyle and brings back the way neighborhoods existed before sprawl development.  All homes in The Gardens at Oxbow are custom-built of various sizes as well as custom-designed for the owner.

Entrepreneur Margie Mokhiber purchased her home in the Gardens of Oxbow in 2008 to accommodate the ever-changing needs of her family.  As her children grew older and moved into homes of their own, she found that she needed a new space to enjoy; one that would allow for entertaining guests while still being intimate enough for family dinners.  The open layout boasts 3 bedrooms and 2 baths and has everything desirable one looks for in a luxury home.  From cathedral ceilings, a gas fireplace and beautiful Brazilian wood floors, this is not your typical patio home.

Margie is a Certified Nutritional Consultant who promotes healthy living and wellbeing. It makes sense that she spends a great deal of time in her kitchen making healthy and delicious meals for her family and friends.  After a long day at work, she finds herself enjoying the beautiful, luxurious views of the pond and fountain from the spacious front veranda.

Although the décor in each room varies in style, Margie has found a way to make it all flow together beautifully.  The black and white kitchen is classic, yet fits perfectly within the remaining traditional design that flows throughout the living space.

The outdoor patio area is located off of the kitchen and features a relaxing lounge space with comfortable furniture.   The fire pit can be found strategically located in the patio area, setting the tone for entertaining friends and family on those perfect summer nights.  This home is ideal for family get-togethers where the family can sit, relax and enjoy the summer!

561 Oak Run Drive

 Lewiston

Oak Run Estates by Glenwood Builders is the newest subdivision to the Town of Lewiston. It houses 66 lots that are being developed over 5 phases.  From single families to empty nesters, these pieces of property are selling very quickly in this sought-after neighborhood and are currently in Phase 3 of development.

Builder, Anthony Barone, completed the Posh Pad, located in Oak Run Estates in 2014.  This modern yet minimalistic home, built for a single, local businessman, is complete with 4 bedrooms and 3.5 baths.

When entering the home, the large crystal chandelier that hangs in the front foyer greets you.  It sets the tone for the modern, classic home, which you are about to experience.

RTM Design & Interiors partnered with All Seasons Rental to create a fun, but elegant setting for entertaining guests in the formal dining room, which sits off of the main hallway. 

 As you walk further into the house, the open kitchen and living area greet you.  The kitchen features an over-sized island with granite counters, beautiful subway tile, and a large picture window.  The family room area, showcasing a large stone fireplace, complements the clean lines you see in the kitchen.  Room-Buffalo accessories can be found to enhance the décor and give it a finishing touch.

Original watercolor artwork by local painter, Tom Hanna, is displayed throughout the first floor, highlighting beautiful scenes of the North East. 

 This gentlemen’s pad would not be complete without its’ own “Man Cave”.  Guests are welcome to venture down to the finished basement area complete with a custom bar and entertaining area.  The owner of this home has a passion for music, which can be seen by the hanging memorabilia and sound system running throughout the house.

The Little Cape that Could

The Little Cape that Could

5139 Forest Rd ~ Lewiston

 

This home is located along the prestigious Niagara Falls Country Club golf course off of the well-known, Mountain View Drive.  Homes in this neighborhood vary in price as well as in size, but the Ley Family home is something not to miss on this tour.  

Rhonda and Alan Ley purchased their house in 2006 and have since been hard at work creating a space that they could entertain guests in and make their own.  This Cape Cod style home once had 4 bedrooms, but now features two bedrooms on the first floor, and a large second story master suite.  The suite is complete with a walk-in closet, large dream bathroom and even a breakfast nook for morning coffee.  

With the help of Kinetic Kitchen and Bath, Rhonda and Alan completely transformed their first floor living and dining space.  They took out walls and barriers that secluded them from interacting with their guests.  Now when you enter the home, you will be greeted and amazed by the large, open and elegant area.  The dining area sits beautifully in front of the updated fireplace, and on top of the original hardwood flooring.   Local Artisan, Roz DiBacco of 5 Foxes Glass, has taken the elements within the home and created custom glass tableware!  Directly across, you could picture yourself sitting in one of the stools along the large over-sized granite island while enjoying some appetizers.  A beautiful built-in bar area is convenient for storage space, as well as, to display cocktails of choice.  Be sure to stop and see the before photos of what the home used to look like that are displayed in front of the fireplace.

The Ley’s have a passion for collecting wildlife art, which you can see and enjoy throughout their first floor space.  The rhinoceros painting that sits on the mantle above the fireplace, and the Chimpanzee (perfectly nick-named “Old Man” by Rhonda) are original Edward Spera paintings from Niagara-On-The-Lake.

A sunken living room showcases two sets of French doors for an abundance of natural light and perfect viewing of the golf course.  One set of doors leads you to the outdoor patio, which is a great place to go when a little R&R is needed, or if you just want to grab your set of clubs and go and play a round of 9.
