The renovation began with the removal of exterior cladding to repair structural damage. The house was then refaced with the original stone and new white clapboard, as well as white-painted brick. The resulting aesthetic is more New England appropriate. Scaled-back front landscaping allows the renovated façade to take center stage.
The interiors were reorganized in various ways, such as opening the kitchen to the addition’s new family room. Above, the number of second-floor bedrooms was reduced to create a more logical floor plan and a larger master suite, with a new third-story bedroom carved out of former storage space.
