A Gracious Colonial Revival
This beautiful house had been loved for generations, but had not been updated in many years.
The new owners have three young children, and were entranced by the gorgeous grounds and the gracious house. They were anxious to have a wide front porch so they could watch the children play.
The back lawn is studded with beautiful mature trees and the owners were anxious to open up the house so that the property was visible from every room.
The new addition, big windows, French doors, and a pergola and terrace replace small windows and a green house that darkened the interior.
The formerly dark, crowded kitchen is flooded with light and big clean workspaces.
The dining room has taken a contemporary turn and opens to the kitchen and to the front hall.
The living room now opens to a sunny family room and French doors lead out to the terrace.
This stately house retains its basic style and shape, but now welcomes a young and active family.
