The owner’s primary objective was to update the feel and function while preserving the original Colonial architecture. The new entry porch provides protection from the elements and adds articulation to the otherwise flat facade.
The first floor had a cramped kitchen, underutilized dining room, and isolated sunroom and family room. The extensive remodel relocated the dining space to the center of the house, and walls were removed so these spaces could flow together and lighten up. The new kitchen has room to gather, prep, and cook together, while large windows provide ample daylighting.
Three bathrooms, laundry, mudroom, bedrooms, closets and the stair were reconfigured for current lifestyles and function. A double column motif was introduced to the first floor to add sophistication and relate the classical detailing of the covered entry to the interior.
