English Country House

Growth Potential

This modest house in the suburbs expanded along with a Massachusetts family, who added children, square footage, and plenty of English charm

Like the climbing roses in their informal garden, Patrick and Marsha Ahearn’s house has grown and bloomed over the 15 years they’ve tended it. The modest cottage was 2,000 square feet when they moved their blended and growing family out of bustling Boston.

English Country House was featured in Better Homes and Gardens Special Interest Publications – Decorating, Fall 2006 issue.
