Location: Pilgrim Lane
Program: The clients wish to expand the home to create additional living space for entertaining on the first floor, including a new gathering room and open kitchen. A private master suite on the second floor is also a request. The existing home has not been significantly updated since being built and is in need of updating.
Client: A young family with teenage children who have outgrown the existing three bedroom ranch house. The clients want the home to be designed in a Cape Style.
Design Solution: In this single family renovation a new space for entertaining on the first floor was realized by moving two bedrooms to a new second floor. This shift of bedrooms allowed the Gathering Room, Kitchen, and Dining areas to occupy the entire left side of the first floor plan. The Kitchen and Dining areas open out to an existing deck and in- ground pool at the rear of the home. The roof lines were rebuilt at a steeper pitch, trim details and deep overhangs were added, and new dormers allowed for additional living space and abundant day lighting on the second floor. New windows, exterior trims and siding, and all new interior finishes were installed to complete the update of the home.
