Born Again

More than just enhanced curb appeal, this 75-year-old Tudor cottage was reborn with a modern openness thatís both family-friendly and neighborhood-friendly.

Before: This 75-year-old Tudor revival cottage was proving to be a bit too small for a young and growing family.

After: More than just enhanced curb appeal, the home has been reborn with a new contemporary openness that is not just family-friendly, it’s neighborhood-friendly as well.

Before: The original living room in the front of the house was too small for practical use.

After: The small living room has become a spacious dining room that the couple uses constantly for entertaining.

Before: The Tudor home was certainly livable and lovely in its own way, but the look was dated and the space was limited.

After: Now the home still pays homage to its Tudor heritage but reigns supreme with added appeal and charm for the entire neighborhood.

Before: The sunroom in the rear of the house was between the one-car garage and the original kitchen.

After: The new great room lives up to its name in the space occupied by the garage and sunroom, along with added new construction toward the front of the house creating an all new entry.

Before: The original dining room was in the rear of the house.

After: The new kitchen is now in place of the former dining room and is the epitome of modern luxury with a Wolf oven, a Sub-Zero refrigerator, and a stunning marble countertop on the island.

Before: The small kitchen lacked counter space and was far from welcoming.

After: A new mudroom and home office now occupy the space where the original cramped kitchen had been.

The rear of the remodeled home is as welcoming as the front.

The new greatroom is both roomy and cozy.

The new front porch is the ideal spot for the parents to keep a watchful eye on their children as they romp from yard to yard throughout the neighborhood.
