Remaking Historic Homes for a New Era



ver the last 24 years, Michael Rankin has purchased 15 homes—and torn every one apart. As managing partner of TTR Sotheby’s International Realty in Washington DC, real estate is not only his business, it’s his passion, particularly historic homes he has renovated for the 21st century. A historic residence is a work of fine craftsmanship and high design with an intangible element no newly constructed home can match—a sense of permanence. Imagine the bloodlines that have coursed through a centuries-old French chateau or Tuscan farmhouse. But what passed for creature comforts generations earlier falls short today. Vintage estates were built for a dramatically different way of life, Rankin says. Kitchens were in the basements. The third floor was reserved for staff. First-floor powder rooms were nonexistent. Luxury homeowners demand residences designed for the way they live and entertain today, and they’ve found inventive ways to bridge the eras by reinterpreting the architecture of yesteryear.


HISTORY IN THE RE-MAKING A home that was well designed from the start can always be modified or adapted without exorcising the original vision. Today’s updates are cosmetic, aesthetic, functional and structural. State-of-the-art kitchens and spa bathrooms are a given but renovations extend beyond to incorporate quality-of-life amenities throughout the house. Homeowners want gyms, home theaters, outdoor entertaining spaces and smart home technology, and they’re not willing to give up on the historic homes they love in order to get them. Still, buying a home that requires major renovations is not a decision to be made lightly. Benton Wheeler, a physician in Memphis, Tenn., had second thoughts about purchasing a historic 8,000-square-foot mansion called Beverly Hall because of the work required to bring it up to contemporary standards. It is one of the city’s fi nest. Now. But it took fi ve years of renovations before the Colonial Revival reached that point.

A historic residence is a work of fine craftsmanship and high design with an intangible element no newly constructed home can match...

Wheeler hired the Memphis firm of Architecture, Incorporated to undo and redo “100 years of additions that people made with no coordination,” he says. Coats of paint—decades worth—were stripped from the woodwork. Floors were replaced. New electrical, plumbing and HVAC were installed. “To redo it right takes a lot of time and no one really sees that. All people see is the finished product,” Wheeler says. Beyond infrastructure issues, Wheeler made Beverly Hall eminently more

livable. Closets were enlarged and modernized, a first-floor pantry was turned into a full bathroom and a servant’s area (identifiable for the pine floors rather than the mahogany floors in the owner’s quarters) became part of a master suite with a pair of walk-in closets and master bath. “There’s something really special about living here that makes all the work worthwhile,” Wheeler says. The older the home, the greater the challenges. In France, for instance, 70% of luxury homes are historic, dating back not just decades but centuries. Some still have Roman foundations. “From a practical standpoint, one should never underestimate the challenges of restoring a historic home,” says Alexander Kraft, chairman of Sotheby’s International Realty France-Monaco. Walls can consist of six-foot thick solid stone, and 40-bedroom castles may have only a couple of antiquated bathrooms. On the upside, residences classified as “Historic Monuments” in France qualify for tax breaks and subsidies, so that maintenance and ongoing renovations are paid, at least in part, by the state. Kraft has seen castles in which bedrooms have been into converted into luxurious bathrooms with their own fireplaces. Other historic properties feature elevators concealed behind antique doors and indoor pools located in former vaulted wine cellars. Such homes are more than the sum of their parts, Kraft says. “An authentic historic home will always have a different atmosphere than a new one, even if many brand new houses try to emulate historic properties. The real deal will always feel different.” BRIDGING ER A S A successful renovation feels cohesive. Celia Dunn of Sotheby’s International Realty in Savannah, Ga., says restoring a historic property requires an architect who has great eye and creative imagination to envision how to adapt a home for today’s families. Buyers prefer homes that have already been renovated, if done well. 75

MODERN VINTAGE They are willing to pay a premium, if they are receiving quality. But since those residences are scarce, Dunn says buyers often explore the other end of the spectrum: “virgin properties that have never been cut up or damaged along the way.” The benefit of undertaking a renovation is winding up with a home that’s tailor-made. The one-of-a-kind nature of historic homes and the back stories that go along with them add to their appeal. Dunn cited the example of a waterfront residence that once served as the Ships of the Sea Museum. About a decade ago, the structure, built circa 1892, underwent a gut renovation and was converted into an exquisite three-story town home overlooking the Savannah River. The architectural showpiece is a custom glass spiral staircase that extends from the lower bedroom level to the roof terrace. Another historic transformation occurred when the famed Barbizon Hotel for Women in Manhattan was converted into luxury condominiums in 2006 and renamed Barbizon/63. The brick and sandstone hotel, built in 1927, is legendary for its former residents such as Grace Kelly, Joan Crawford and Liza Minnelli. Danielle J. Englebardt, of Sotheby’s International Realty in New York, says that buyers are attracted to Barbizon 63 because it combines the craftsmanship of a landmark structure with the “bells and whistles of a brand new building.” Owners enjoy spacious units with zoned temperature controls, Italian Valcucine kitchens and deep marble soaking tubs. Building amenities include a screening room, library, catering kitchen and fitness center. Prices range from about $1 million to $15.9 million for a 5,000-square-foot penthouse. The contrast—the juxtaposition between the age of grace and the age of technology—is what gives these “modern vintage” showplaces their coveted stature.

DESIGNING THE UNEXPECTED Janet Bloomberg is a partner at Kube Architecture in Washington DC, a firm that specializes in historic renovations. “We thrive on contrasts,” she says. Rather than mimic the old, Kube brings today’s finishes, technologies and cutting-edge concepts to yesterday’s gems. A recent project involved installing glass panels on each floor of a rowhouse in Foggy Bottom, a Washington neighborhood of 18 th and 19 th century homes. The idea was to channel natural light from the roof skylight through the center of each floor. The home is referred to as the “See Through House,” and the effect is an unexpected modernist experience. Research is an important element of the renovation process in order to determine what is original to the home. Bloomberg says a homeowner’s desire to preserve an architectural feature, which may be old but of no historical value, can impede a successful re-design. “ When there are redeeming elements, however, we like to highlight them. We like people to see them in a new way such as an old fireplace in house that’s been opened up so you see it in the context of a larger space.” Owners of historic homes often see themselves as having a special responsibility to be stewards, preserving them for the next generation. How that’s done “is not a matter of right or wrong,” says broker Michael Rankin, “but about honoring and respecting what the architect has created.”

The grounds of one of Britain’s greatest country houses, Chatsworth, the seat of the Dukes of Devonshire, play host to an annual exhibition of monumental sculpture organised by Sotheby’s.





enowned as one of the treasure houses of Great Britain, Chatsworth sits in a secluded valley in the rolling countryside of Derbyshire. Owned by the Dukes of Devonshire for over 500 years, successive generations have gradually restyled the house into the graceful and elegant Italianate building that can still be visited. Successive Dukes, not least the 6th, were also art connoisseurs and collectors, assembling a collection of books, paintings, drawings, sculpture and other works of art to rival any museum. The 6th Duke also com pletely remodelled the gardens in the early 19th century to create the graceful lawns, trees and parkland that can be seen today. Ever y September since 20 06 the grounds of Chatsworth have played host to a selling exhibition of monumental sculptures by leading modern and contemporary artists, bringing a taste of the avant-garde to the manicured gardens. Entitled Beyond Limits the show has been the province of Sotheby’s Alexander Platon since its inception, as he recounts the origins of the show: “We had held a couple of similar exhibitions in the United States at Isleworth Golf and Country Club in Florida. We felt that it was such a great format and there was nothing similar in Europe.” The choice of Chatsworth made perfect sense: “Chatsworth is the ideal location in many ways. Obviously the house and landscape are fabulous, but there is huge scope for creating a dialogue between historic architecture and gardens and great contemporary sculpture. It felt like a continuation of the tradition of collecting and patronage at Chatsworth. So in 2006, we did the first show and it was a huge success and the rest is history.” Over the years, works by artists from Damien Hirst, Marc Quinn and Manolo Valdés to Salvador Dalí and Aristide Maillol have featured in the exhibition. This year sees examples by Fernando Botero, Marc Quinn, Thomas Heatherwick, Tony Cragg, Mario Merz—the list goes on, but diversity is the key to the success of this show. Platon explores this idea further:

“Showcasing examples at Chatsworth allows us to keep abreast of what is going on in the world of monumental sculpture, and we try to keep as diverse as possible, showing artists from around the world.” This year also sees a departure with a concurrent exhibition inside Chatsworth entitled Modern Makers. This is a carefully curated show revealing the work of contemporary decorative and applied artists, as Platon explains: “It will be interesting for a visitor to Chatsworth to see how the incredible permanent collections in the house are complimented by the temporary exhibitions Sotheby’s is holding in both the house and garden.” Assembling these mammoth sculptures in one location is also a massive achievement, which starts with imagining where they might sit best in the gardens. “As far as I am concerned, it is great fun”, says Platon. “I approach it from a non-practical perspective. I think about where a sculpture might look at its best as it is crucial to create a dialogue between a piece and the surroundings. Then practical issues come in—we have to make sure we can move the piece to where I envisage it would look good. Sometimes it does not work and I have to look for a new position.”

For those who might come to Chatsworth seeking to acquire a piece of sculpture at Beyond Limits, Platon explains seeing the work outside makes a huge difference.

For those who might come to Chatsworth seeking to acquire a piece of sculpture at Beyond Limits, Platon explains seeing the work outside makes a huge difference: “One thing that the exhibition allows to do is to envisage monumental sculptures in the outdoors. Seeing a piece in the elements gives a different perspective and by seeing their scale and being able to interact with the sculptures, buyers can envisage how pieces might appear in their own spaces.” Platon does offer a final thought for prospective purchasers: “As with all artworks people should buy what they like. If there is a sculpture that appeals to them, that is the first step. In that sense the size is irrelevant, but with monumental sculpture, there is the added complexity that once it is sited, it is more or less permanent, so it is crucial to find the appropriate piece for the appropriate space.” Beyond Limits, which takes place every year in the early Fall, is a fascinating chance to encounter works of art in exceptional and unusual surroundings. The exhibition affords visitors, be they collectors or otherwise, the opportunity to experience the vision of world-renowned artists in the setting for which they were created: the great outdoors.
