The original bones of this understated country farmhouse were almost unrecognizable. All of the original windows, doors, flooring, and trims – even the country kitchen – had been removed. A thorough design discovery process informed the design solution that acknowledges the building’s venerable history while providing modern living for a growing family.
The transformative restoration included a new eat-in kitchen, bedrooms, bathrooms, wrap around porch, and stone fireplaces. Custom, farmer’s-style cabinetry, timber framing, and salvaged materials in the kitchen addition were installed with authentic craftsmanship to lend a sense of place and history to the fabric of the space. The new master suite includes a cathedral ceiling showcasing beautifully-worn, salvaged timbers. Sliding barn doors separate the custom-designed master bath and closet. The new second-floor hallway features a bold, red floor while new transoms in each bedroom let in plenty of light. A summer stair, detailed and crafted with authentic details, was added for additional access and charm. Finally, a welcoming farmer’s porch wraps around the side entry, connecting to the rear yard via a gracefully engineered grade. This large outdoor space provides seating for large groups of people to visit and dine next to the beautiful outdoor landscape and new exterior stone fireplace.
