1890's Historic Home

Gold Winner Renovation Awards – Whole House "C"

This historic home was restored to its original grandeur and beyond.
  Gold Winner Renovation Awards – Whole House "C"

This home was built in 1895 and over the years, had undergone little by way of renovation. The new homeowners had loved this dwelling and park-like property for years and were thrilled to purchase it, under the condition that aspects of the original house were maintained. Extensive upgrading was needed as well as more living space. Architect Wins Bridgeman and interior designer Greg Palmer were hired to develop the new house plan: a 2 storey 3,000 square foot addition and complete restoration of the existing 1,800 square foot home. The design objective was to maintain a traditional look but provide state of the art amenities. The home was gutted and the original stone foundation stabilized and waterproofed. The new foundation consisted of concrete piles and grade beam that supported a glu-lam arch framework in a traditional Gambrel style. Expanded portico with matching balcony mimics the original but embraces 3 sides of the home. Architectural details - columns, ballustrades and moldings - recreate the home's former traditional style. Gables details were restored with cedar shingles and tyndall stone and reclaimed brick complete the exterior.
