Year Built

1939

Type of Remodel

Kitchen, mudroom, and great room addition

Before

Although this center hall colonial features an expansive living room and generous dining room, the kitchen was cramped—impossible for a young family. The formal spaces were ideal for cocktail parties, but there was no space for children’s activities and family life.

After

The remodeled kitchen with added family room provides a generous area for cooking and socializing. The great room’s wide-open design is ideal for informal gatherings. The elegant, formal aspects of the home are retained through careful connections to the redesigned spaces.

Must-see Features

A hardworking, beautiful butler’s pantry connects the new kitchen and traditional dining room. Stunning, deep-blue, Greenfield cabinetry with delicate brass “jewelry” keeps servingware organized and the eyes delighted. In the new back entrance, elegant meets rustic in a herringbone brick floor.
