Creative Constructions, which prides itself both its contemporary and historically accurate restorations in Brownstone Brooklyn, views the move to Red Hook as the natural choice.
I see incredible potential in Red Hookwith its cobblestone streets and civil war-era brick warehouses and frame townhouses, it really is a unique location, and very close to the most historic neighborhoods in Brooklyn said Sam Ahmad, CEO and founder of the company.
When Mr. Ahmad stumbled across the building that would become Creative Renovations homebase on Van Brunt Street last year, he knew he had found a gem.
The company completely restored the three-story building and adjoining back carriage house facades to match images found in carefully researched historical photos.
The main building has been returned to its original storefront configuration, now housing a comfortable and lush office space for clients; complete with working fireplace, mahogany inlaid floors, wainscoting, and a cutting edge glass-tiled bathroom. The Carriage House is now a duplex two bedroom rental with its own private front garden.
Creative Renovations is located at 398 Van Brunt Street. Visitors are welcome Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
