New Kids In Town - The Daszkowskis

New Kids In Town - The Daszkowskis

The Daszkowskis Set Up House and Put Down Roots in Holmdel


It’s a story that has been told, time and again - young families originally from the five boroughs  searching to start a life in Northern Monmouth County. For Staten Islanders Walter and Lauren Daszkowski, that was never the plan, but that was still the outcome.

After marrying in 2008, the Daszkowskis, with no intention of relocating to New Jersey, began to  search high and low for a new home in Staten Island to house their soon- to-be-growing family. It  made sense to stay there. Their parents were there, their friends were there, their jobs were  there. It certainly would have been convenient. But, as Lauren explains, they soon grew tired of  seeking out the perfect place amongst the cramped lifestyle and congestion that comes with living on Staten Island.

Walter’s father got the Jersey ball rolling by doing an Internet property search for his son and  new daughter-in-law. He had family in the area and had always been a fan of Holmdel, in  particular. After realizing what was available for them there, in the beautiful surroundings and  neighborhoods, the relatively short commute to Staten Island, and the quality of the school  system, Walter and Lauren’s interest was more than piqued; it didn’t take long before they had a  realtor on board and had seen nearly 25 homes.

As long as it was in Holmdel, Walter was more than willing to move into an older home, but  Lauren was holding out for a new construction. Their wait paid off when it led to a new home that had recently been completed by Riccardi Custom Homes of Holmdel, and which was now up for  sale. Including a fully-finished basement, the home was a 7,500 sq-ft, move-in-ready dream, set  on a one acre corner lot. Much to the Daszkowskis delight, in addition to the home being exactly  what they were looking for in terms of size, layout, and location, it was evident that Riccardi Builders had cut no corners in its construction. From the choice of top-quality materials, down to the smallest details such as rounding every outside corner on the interior walls, it was all there.

In August of 2009, Walter and Lauren moved into their new home, and by the end of the year  were expecting their first child – proving the choice of a fully completed new home to be the  correct one. Because now, with their 9 month old son Chace just about to start tearing around the  house, there will be very little time or opportunity for the Daszkowskis to deal with the inevitable  repairs and upgrades that come with an older home – at least for the next 18 years!




The Daszkowskis worked, in conjunction with a designer, to add personal touches and flair  to turn this house into their home. Custom, two-story long drapes on either side of the gas fireplace in the great room draw the eye upward toward the deep crown molding and across  the chocolate brown accent walls with aqua details.




The most interesting feature of the foyer is the two-floor oak staircase with wrought iron spindles. The  curved stairs lead up to the second floor and an exact duplicate, turned 180 degrees, leads down to the  finished basement.



An arched entryway leads to the custom kitchen with tumbled tile, solid cherry cabinets and granite  countertops. The center island features a convenient vegetable sink, and the entire kitchen is outfitted with  top-of-the line Thermador® stainless steel appliances.




A Murano® chandelier, brought home from Italy, hangs above the cherry table with white ash burl inlay in  the formal dining room.




The walls of the family room are covered in a dark, textured covering, which reflects in the gleaming black granite shelves and ledges perched atop the sapele wood cabinetry of the custom, built-in wall unit.




Double doors lead into the huge master suite where twin, plush, black chaise lounges flank the bed on  either side.




Nautical-themed mementos brought home from various “beach” vacations can be found all around the  master bath. Here, the Daszkowskis can relax in their Kohler® jetted tub with granite and wood surround or  in their tiled 4-head walk in shower.



The theater room in the basement is a masterpiece in anigre and rift white oak – and is so new that it is  still waiting on the delivery of the custom theater seating!




Travertine pavers lead from the pool to the custom 13’x16’ pool house, complete with full bar, for  summertime refreshments and entertaining.




There are a total of seven bathrooms in the home – each decorated in a different style. The first floor  powder room has a boldly patterned Roman shade and interesting art pieces that complement the faux-painted striped walls.
