To celebrate this 300-year old Georgian farmhouse’s history and the stories within, rooms and details were preserved where possible: woodwork and paint colors were painstakingly matched and blended; the hall and parlor refurbished; the three-run open string staircase was lovingly restored; and details like a period-appropriate front door with authentic hinges were masterfully re-created. The home is a masterpiece of old and new, combining features such as new pine floors installed with with hand cut, hand-driven nails with authentic rustic plaster walls and the original timber frame.
To accommodate a modern family, an addition was built to house a new, farmhouse style kitchen. An oversize island is topped with reclaimed oak, and a unique back splash was fashioned out of brick salvaged from the home. Bathrooms were added and upgraded for the family of seven, including a spacious two-story master bath with claw foot tub, glass shower, and sliding barn door.
