This renovation project grew upon an existing one-story home located in the historic neighborhood of Augusta Road. The program involved an expansion of 1,300 SF to the existing 2,000 SF of the original home, including the addition of a new living area, a large screen porch and two bedroom suites and play area on a new second level.
The expanded volume of the structure was primarily vertical in order to preserve a spacious and beautifully landscaped front and back yard. The new screen porch encourages a closer communion with the surrounding landscape, and serves as a second indoor/outdoor gathering area. The living area features a new fireplace, tray ceiling and painted trim and details to match the original.
On the exterior, the building was completely refinished utilizing bungalow style details and colors prevalent in the neighborhood. New gabled roofs, divided windows, painted wood brackets, shutters and shingle siding all combined to provide a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere.
