One hundred years as well as generations of unsympathetic owners and tenants didn’t deter these clients from seeing this property as a real opportunity in a prime historic district. They wanted an urban get-away with a relaxed, uplifting and airy summerhouse feel. The house was completely reconfigured to maximize its potential and to shape it around copious natural lighting and the family’s social lifestyle. The second floor contains two bedroom, hall bath and generous master suite. Every aspect of this house was reconsidered from interior layout to the lighting design to the heating/cooling systems to the reworking of entire exterior envelope. Along with all of the specialty finishes and extensive use of custom millwork, this home is ready for generations to come regardless of the time of year.
