1960's Ranch Expansion

The decision to add a second floor Family Room and expand other first floor areas in this previously drab 1960’s ranch house gave the owners the opportunity to rework the image of the house into one which better suited their tastes.

 

The architect responded with a “Shingle Style” design, which transformed the house into a pleasing evocation of that 19th century style and created the precise image the owners were seeking.

 

The renovation included an acoustically perfect Library/Music Room, the opening of the front staircase and hallway, expansion of the Living Room and Dining Room, and a new second floor Family Room opening onto a balcony encompassing the beautiful country view.
