The first floor included a cramped kitchen, an underutilized dining room, and an isolated sunroom and family room. The owner’s primary objective was to update the look and feel while preserving the original home’s Colonial architecture. The extensive remodel relocated the dining space to the center of the house, and walls were removed so these spaces could flow together. The owner wanted to “lighten it up” with a light color palate, including painted white cabinets and millwork. The new kitchen features a cooktop, double wall oven, walk-in pantry, and a large island with seating. A window seat provides casual seating while the large windows provide ample daylighting for the kitchen.
At the Owner’s Bath, the tub was removed and space was reconfigured for a walk-in shower and double vanity.
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.
