A major renovation of a historic Chatham residence to serve as a second home for a Massachusetts family. Originally constructed around 1880, the house was in need of significant repairs and upgrades. The renovated project includes an ample front porch that enhances the form of the original house as well as additions to the rear that expand dining and kitchen areas.
The existing house was raised up on a new foundation; a major addition was added at the rear to accommodate the master bedroom and kitchen; and an existing, non-descript garage was transformed into a unique guest/carriage house. The project won an award from the Chatham Historic Commission.
