The 1785 Reverend John Mottey House, also known as Centre Farm, is a beautiful, sprawling farmhouse listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Small, segmented rooms (including an outdated kitchen) were opened up to create a large, open kitchen and family room. A new master suite and bathrooms were added to make a comfortable living space for the active family of six. Historic architectural elements were lovingly restored including original beams, fireplaces, flooring, mouldings, staircases, and all 76 existing doors and hardware. This project honors the historic fabric of the home, restored details that were lost over the years, and created new living spaces for this modern family to enjoy for years to come.
