Dover Country Homestead

Dover, MA

Additions and modifications made to this 1910 residence in the 60s and 70s left the first floor as a rabbit warren of convoluted spaces without relation to each other. In order to imbue the home with character befitting an estate property, a thoughtful new circulation pattern was devised. A logical sequence of spaces now takes full advantage of the panorama of seven rolling acres outside the back door.

Upon entering the property, a generous unobstructed foyer and great room greet guests. A prior sunroom was reconfigured to become part of the gracious space, inviting expansive views of the pond into the main living area. By reimagining the floor plan and adding extensive architectural detailing throughout, the house was given a new narrative as a proper country manor.

Thanks to significant new terraces on the back of the home, opportunity now exists to enjoy the natural vistas and entertain al fresco. With the introduction of an indoor/outdoor connection and logical flow throughout, the residence now fully appreciates the beauty of the landscape and achieves the potential of what could have been within the bones of the original property.
