A 3,400 sf masonry single family bungalow was renovated and enlarged to meet the growing demands of a young family. The design expands into the existing vacant attic and basement, incorporating original stain glass windows, architectural woodwork and trim into a contemporary and functional sequence of flowing space.
Ground Floor living areas are open to one another while maintaining a sense of separation with soffits, columns and framed views. The front half
of the home, containing Living, Dining and Music Rooms, remains the formal portion of the residence. The back of the house acts as an informal family gathering area, enhanced by the open adjacencies between Kitchen, Family and Breakfast Rooms.
The Second Floor retains a greater sense of privacy and contains new Bedrooms and Bathrooms. The Master Suite includes walk-in closet, cathedral skylit ceiling and a generous Bathroom with an oversized tub. The Basement has been redesigned to incorporate a large, open play area, Bathroom and adjoining Guest Room.
