Tour A Tailored Home With Grown-Up Good Looks

Designer Sloan Mauran had always admired this six-bedroom neo-Georgian further uptown, and had even photographed it as a source of inspiration. So when it came up for sale, she and husband Adrian Tauro jumped at the chance of making it their dream home. Inside, the turn-of-the-century house was a time capsule from the 1950s — well-loved but in need of an overhaul. The space was gutted, though the footprint and the window and door openings were left virtually the same. “I like the idea of a personal history,” says Sloan. “There’s something comforting about things that are familiar.” As a result, it’s a true fusion of cozy and cool — ideal for both entertaining and curling up on the sofa.
