1941 Cape cod restoration
PROJECT COMPLETED IN 3.5 MONTHS / SOLD IN 24 HOURS
This house had been in the same family since it was built in 1941. The home was in a lot of disrepair when we closed on it in September 2015.
The front exterior was completely hidden by overgrowth. Repainting the original wood shingle siding Sherwin Williams "Nostalgia" blue and a new Gray roof brought out the architectural character of the home. Gray shutters, a red front door and landscaping will complete the new look.
The front porch and breezeway both provide exceptional outdoor living spaces to welcome guests or enjoy the expansive backyard scenery.
The ornamental arbor across the garage front was repaired and kept white so to pop against the blue exterior. Little Bo Peep keeps her watch from the copula over the garage and we believe she is very pleased with the spruced up look.
The original 1941 fixtures and architectural pieces throughout the house made this a project we couldn't pass up. We could see the beauty and character of the house that could be brought back to life making this home a showpiece.
The Kitchen, Breakfast Room & Dining Room were opened up to create a large Kitchen/Gathering Room. The two windows on the exterior wall in the Breakfast Room were removed and a French door installed to allow access to the park-like backyard. A new deck expands the entertaining space to the outdoors.
We kept the arched soffits in the kitchen and added specialty trim work to the new doorways. New hardwood was laid in the kitchen to pull the new open area together.
The interior design will have a Nantucket feel with soft blues, grays, green color scheme, antique white kitchen cabinets and Santana granite countertops.
The second floor was a wide open attic that had never been finished. A roomy master suite with sitting area , a full bath and a third bedroom were installed from scratch. We kept the original dormer roof lines as much as possible making them unique spaces.
