This handsome home was ready for an update to better serve a young and growing family. Reconfigured spaces create a generous light-filled kitchen with convenient breakfast corner for informal family gathering. The adjacent family room overlooks a new screen porch, part of the addition to the back of the house. The main level of the addition also includes a mudroom and a laundry room with a laundry chute from the upstairs bedrooms. The second level of the addition is a generous primary suite. The bedroom feels more like a treehouse overlooking the backyard. The glamorous bathroom and walk-in closet complete the private enclave. The basement makeover provides a workshop and an office, plus a recreation space for years of family fun. The owners were active participants in the renovation process, making the home they had dreamed of a reality by putting their personal style on the project.
