This 1832 colonial was in serious need of restoration. The first step was to clear out an overgrown yard full of vines, brush, and scraggly trees to reveal a stunning cliff at the rear of the property. The next step was to remove several non-original exterior elements of the house and restore its formal glory. We also replaced the roof and windows and added a deck and stone walkways. After that, we focused on the inside where we restored the original oak, chestnut, and pine floors and installed new vintage style light fixtures, natural stone countertops, and 5-panel doors. We also used spray foam insulation in the exterior walls to maximize the R-value and insulated the first, second, and attic floors. We blended the best of the old and the new.
