SECTION 1 : OVERVIEW


“TREETOPS” COZY, ELEGANT and MAJESTIC, only begin to describe this private oasis. TREETOPS slowly begins to reveal itself as you meander down the long winding driveway, with breathtaking views, slopes and extensive landscape. TREETOPS has more to unveil, once you enter the brick walking path to the front entry. Stone Walls, and the feeling of cozy and private immediately fill your senses. Upon entering the foyer, TREETOPS will immediately create a statement... the drama of it’s soaring 20’ foot ceiling, curved staircase, upper landing and total elegance. But this is just the beginning once inside TREETOPS. Just like the surprise of opening a Russian nesting doll, Matryoshka (mah-tri-YOSH-kah) which are dolls nestled inside one another until finally revealing a small gift, TREETOPS continues to surprise you on every floor. When your interior tour of TREETOPS concludes, the majestic outdoor living begins on the expansive IPE deck; you’ll feel HEIGHT and DRAMA; Outdoor Living Room with Awning, Hot Tub, Curved railings, Granite Counter Top and Viking BBQ. But to truly appreciate the property of TREETOPS, you’ll finish the tour down the curved IPE staircase to experience the sweeping lawns, sleigh ride ride hills and Christmas trees. Wander along the Rock Edge Tree line to see the fields, BUT peek back at the house to MARVEL at the HEIGHT and DRAMA because TREETOPS is deceiving to the naked eye. Notice the height of deck, or the Master Bedroom Terrace, all you will say is wow! When you arrive back to your car, and begin the ascent up the driveway, stop at the Cherry Blossoms to get one last look at the views of your new oasis, TREETOPS.

DESIGN

ELECTRONICS DESIGN GROUP, PISCATAWAY, NJ

The old house was set back in a field, far away from the single winding road that passed through this rural landscape. It was late on a dark night; only the stars shining through the heavily foliated trees provided any light. Suddenly, there was an unexpected hard knock at the front door, startling the unsuspecting family inside. This sounds like the beginning of a horror story, but it actually happened. That stranger’s knock at the door that night turned out to be the beginning of a wonderful adventure with a very happy ending. Electronic Design Group was contacted by the homeowner of this modest 4000-squarefoot country home to collaborate with the architect and interior designer who were contracted to renovate the 18-year-old house. The original structure was not wired to support any technology such as Internet access or even cable TV. Because the cosmetic renovations required extensive interior alterations, cutting open walls to pull wire was not an issue. The clients wanted a fully automated, state-of-the-art home that included an integrated security system — especially for the long driveway in front of the house. The home automation solution EDG designed and installed was expansive and comprehensive. Crestron controlled and automated the GE security and alarm systems; 60 zones of lighting; eight audio zones

fed by a hard-drive audio server, FM radio, and Crestron’s XM radio tuner; three zones of Crestron thermostats; shades; and a dedicated media room. Bob Gullo, EDG President, says, “This really shows the power of Crestron integration — everything working together.” Gullo, speaking specifically about the Crestron thermostats comments, “All the metadata is displayed on the touchpanels, which is very cool.” The client controls all systems from different touchpanels in six locations throughout the house or from a PC using e-Control. Crestron touchpanels include a TPS-2000, an STX-1700C, three CT-1000s, and two TPS-3000s.

The family room, which is used as the media room, “looks like an old gentlemen’s club with lots of dark woods and leather chairs, and not a hint of technology,” describes Gullo. Except for the fact that this old-world style room is actually full of technology, including a plasma and a projector displaying multiple sources such as HD TiVo, DVD, VHS, PC, and various video game inputs. Crestron controls all of the technology with “one button operation” according to Gullo. The client selects the display device and the source, and magic happens. Either the painting on the wall lifts to reveal the plasma, or a motorized door on the wood soffit

Treetops

Rosemary Petriello Hidden installation was the primary goal for this project, and with its successful achievement, this award-winning home features system integration residing within simple elegance. A beautfiul Media Decor painting hangs over the fireplace where one-touch motorization affords the homeowner the luxury of pressing a button to cause the painting to retract thus revealing the plasma television for use. Use of the video screen is as simple as the press of a button as well, and when not in use, both television and video screen are completely hidden from sight. The video projector is also hidden in the millwork and revealed only when the homeowner desires. With the “WOW” factor successfully achieved in the family room of this home, classic elegance exudes throughout the home rounding out in total perfection. The completely hidden installation is visible in each room only at the times of the homeowner’s choice. This dream home offers system integration combined with seamless convenience and a pinch of panache.
