I love classically beautiful homes, especially the ones found in the Buffalo Central Park neighborhood. One of the first planned communities in Western New York—developed by entrepreneur Lewis J. Bennett—this North Buffalo neighborhood features many elegant and distinctive single family homes built between 1889 and 1935.

Dr. Tim and Suzanne Mahoney’s home is a perfect example of these elegant homes. Throw in a brand new kitchen and this is right up my HGTV-loving alley!!
I tend to favor traditional homes with a modern kick. Walking into a home with a beautiful entryway, moldings, staircase, large windows, and then seeing a soapstone island with seating for 6? Did I mention new Bosch ovens? It’s heaven. The Mahoney’s have a large family of 7 and the kitchen is definitely the main hub. Maybe I even had breakfast at the island (avocado toast) and felt like I was home.
The natural light, soothing colors, and quality countertops and appliances with room to cook with friends make it a chef’s kitchen. Suzanne also does some fantastic catering so she really understands a kitchen and its beauty, plus optimal functionality.
I’ve highlighted some of my fav details in the pictures below. Enjoy.
- Suzanne Mahoney is my first cousin. See! Buffalo is a Tight-Knit community. I can’t help it if my cousins have such great homes!
- Tim Mahoney is my dentist AND his house has perfect dental molding?! Coincidence?
- This home has so many details that I may have left out such as stained glass windows, beautiful awnings, and three floors. I’m trying to keep it simple, so as not to get too wordy.
Thank you Mahoney family for allowing us in, you all are too kind.
