Colonial Charm

Project Description

Colonial Charm

A unique discovery in the suburbs of Boston, this home was designed by a locally renowned architect and is a rare example of his clapboard designs. The current owners found the home largely unaltered for the original design, though in need of much repair, and were dedicated to maintaining the historic integrity of the home. In addition to restoring the original house, the program focused on replacing the undersized garage, updating kitchen and bathrooms, and creating family friendly gathering spaces. The new addition was to be seamlessly tied to the existing. Every detail from the windows to the door hardware was evaluated in relation to the historic context of the home. The historically sensitive design of this addition/renovation was recognized with multiple BRAGB Prism Awards.
