Mid-Century Modern Porch
Entertaining, cooking, and a good book
A good book, the glow and radiant warmth of the cast iron stove, and a nice glass of bourbon. Doesn’t sound bad, does it?
This sitting room, with a custom designed bar and bookshelves, connects to the newly renovated kitchen and provides a place to entertain your guests as well as a nice place to relax and curl up with your favorite book. When you need a new book just grab one from the new library which is bathed in natural light.
This renovation & addition of a center hall colonial drastically changed this home. The home needed to work with the sloped site, tie into the existing landscaping, bring in natural light, and tie into the existing residence as seamlessly as possible. The first floor included a new kitchen, breakfast area, and dining room. A new master suite was added to the second floor. A garage, covered patio, and connection to the existing basement was added below. All three floors were connected via a new elevator making this house usable for years to come for the owners.
A new large bluestone patio acts as the anchor for a heavy timber cypress pergola with a retractable roof. Custom fabricated stainless steel connectors act as accents between the heavy timber framing. A fire pit area provides the family a nice gathering space in the evenings.
Connecting inside and out
The new kitchen addition and renovation opens up and connects to the backyard entertaining area. The new exterior area includes a bluestone patio, brick walls with landscaped planting beds, a pergola to provide shade, and a water feature to relax by.
Kitchen, garage, and ADU
A new kitchen changes the way a family lives in a home. The kitchen opens to the dining room to allow for better family gatherings and entertaining.
The new garage with an ADU (accessory dwelling unit) above provides both storage and rental income or space for parents/in-laws.
Growing with the family
Adding a master suite to this house gives the parents some much needed room. Plus, now the kids now have larger rooms and the family has room to grow with this home.
Entertaining at home
Entertaining at home just got easier in this home by adding a sophisticated bar which connects to a beautifully renovated kitchen and dining area that seats twelve.
On the exterior, a new pool deck help bring the entertaining outdoors by connecting the pool, a built in pizza oven, and seating areas to enjoy time with friends and family.
Open plan living
Opening up a first floor so that you have an open plan layout can transform your home. It offers you opportunities for the family to get together and to entertain larger groups of friends and family.
