Before buying and renovating this house in Harrison, N.Y., Ivy Fahrer was living in a penthouse with large windows in New Jersey's Bergen County. 'I had never lived in or occupied a private house before,' Ms. Fahrer says, noting that she grew up in New York City. 'I lived in high rises my entire life.'
