This classic, half-timbered home on a waterfront site was ready for an upgrade. Our renovation/addition leaves the original house intact while adding a garage and updating the kitchen wing. The new two-car garage was skewed to fit the available land. A tiered, covered passageway frames the water-view on the approach and connects to a new mudroom entry. The renovated kitchen and water-view breakfast alcove connect down to the existing family room at the garden level. The second floor features a high ceilinged bedroom with a deck on the waterside above the garage, a laundry and hall bath above the passageway, and two renovated bedrooms overlooking the pond above the kitchen and family areas. A new slate roof for the whole house completes this renovation program.
