This 1900 home was purchased by the current owners in the hopes of restoring its original character. A 2,600 square foot addition was added to the rear of the home, but everyone involved in the project strived to maintain the historical aesthetic. Wherever possible, existing materials and finishes were used including door hardware, the staircase handrail used as a kitchen island foot rail, and the original window glass was repurposed in the custom kitchen cabinets. Under the surface, the home is well equipped with modern conveniences such as a central vac system, all new windows, geothermal heating and cooling, and a state of the art audio/visual system. The existing home and the addition flow seamlessly to best accommodate the modern day family with slight alterations to the footprint. Custom touches abound making this home the best of both worlds.
