Maintaining the period-style of her 1907 home was of critical importance to this urban professional. A growing family and a desire to entertain were the driving forces behind the need to update her existing home. The new 980 square-foot addition includes period-style moldings and three-piece base trims that maintain the cohesive feel with the rest of the home, both inside and out. The exterior siding and trim was selected and painted to match the rest of the home and gave the addition a seamless look.
Inside, the new master suite’s bath features a deep soaking tub, separate shower, toilet, and double sink which were selected for their period-appropriateness. The master suite also features a large closet and a spacious master bedroom. An existing bedroom was reconfigured to gain access to this new master suite addition. On the main floor, the kitchen, which was shifted to the north, has a classic period look and features hardwood floors, a stainless recessed niche, a stainless steel sink, a vented microwave, and ample windows to bring in natural light. The Linen White cabinets are accented with a Dark Slate Silestone quartz countertop in a matte finish. The adjacent dining room was opened to the kitchen and has become the main eating and entertaining space. This area features hardwood floors as well. The addition also contains a large family room with a fireplace, a pantry and organization “office,” a powder room, and a mudroom.
This project also included adding a 20’ x 24’ two-stall garage on the rear of the property with a pitched roof to match the home and a 16’ period-style overhead garage door.
