KOSL Building Group builds homes that can stand
the test of time. "We build and utilize the most quality materials available," Vice President Oran Ben-Simon says. "It is
critical to build a quality product that you can stand behind.
"We will never take on a project we can't execute, and
people appreciate that," he says. "Our time is valuable; if we
take on a project we will execute it 100 percent."
The custom luxury homes built by the Scarsdale, N.Y.based company include efficient and effective building techniques that ensure their longevity. From underground utility
lines, heavy Douglas Fir framing material and extraordinary
finishes, all angles of each project are carefully analyzed. "We
think of every aspect from every angle to make sure people
are well secured in their homes," he adds, noting that estates
built by KOSL have survived major storms including Hurricane Sandy in 2012.
In addition to being built to last, KOSL homes are known
for their tasteful design. "We specialize in early 1900 traditional-style architecture, which is not easily replicated,"
Oran Ben-Simon says. "It takes a lot of creativity and assessment when creating our plans to make sure our product fits
into each neighborhood and is not an eyesore. Our homes
look like they were built 100 years ago, but with an innovative and transitional style of the modern age."
These homes feature architectural details including royal columns, slated or sweeping roofs and elegant verandas.
Common interior features in the company's homes include
plenty of large windows, intricate tile work and considerable
"The interiors of our homes have extensive trim that
make them feel furnished even when there's nothing inPROFILE
