Built in the 1850’s, the historic home had no curb appeal with its original front lost to the new streets and homes built around it. Over time, its detailing had been removed or covered with stucco. The floor plan footprint was large, but the small disconnected rooms would not conform to current homeowner needs. Relocating the front door, adding a wrap-around porch, and using historic photos for inspiration created the curb appeal that was lacking. A new kitchen that was open to the dining room and new family room was added as a “family hub,” and the interconnected 2nd floor bedrooms were separated to create a master suite, and 2 bedrooms.
