LDa was asked to help expand this 1920’s Tudor style home to better accommodate contemporary family living. The existing kitchen was renovated and enlarged to accommodate two cooks, as the husband and wife often cook together. Additional storage, counter space and a breakfast bay were also included in this renovation.
Just past the kitchen is the expanded family room with custom built in bookcases that accommodate the family’s large collection of books, media, and a flat screen television. The family room’s wall color, mahogany trim, and cabinetry create a warm and inviting ambiance. A new screen porch with radiant heaters allows for this family to enjoy the 3-season indoor/outdoor living space located adjacent to both the pool and terrace. A new garage wing includes a private guest bedroom and spacious mudroom that connects the garage to the kitchen. The mudroom also includes a built in kennel for the family dog. On the second floor a new master bathroom suite was added and the existing family bathroom was completely renovated to function for both their children and guests.
Since the family needed to remain in the house during construction, the project was carefully phased to be minimally disruptive. The resulting addition and renovations blend seamlessly with the original character of the home, while accommodating a contemporary lifestyle in a traditional, yet fresh style.
