This beautiful 1894 West Roxbury Queen Anne has come a long way since our client purchased it in 2015. This is the house before the renovation and addition.
In order to help our client visualize the potential in the house, we created a 3d model of the proposed design, which included removing the vinyl siding, restoring the existing shingle siding, re-building and reconfiguring the awkward front porch. We also proposed changing out the attic window to be more in keep with the period of the home. The client also requested a garage. We designed a garage that would be period appropriate by using architectural elements from the main house and carriage-style doors.
The house has been brought back to its original beauty on the exterior while the interior was updated by opening up the living areas and adding a large family room and patio off the rear.
The gut renovation included a new, open-concept kitchen/family/dining areas, as shown in the photo and floor plan below.
First Floor Plan: Dark shaded walls indicate new construction. The existing wall between the existing kitchen and dining room were removed to create an open living concept while the addition is home to a new family/media room, half bath, and mudroom. A new garage was added to the left of the house, and the porch was re-built and covered to fit in with the period of the home.
Second Floor Plan: Dark shaded walls indicate new construction. The existing fourth bedroom was transformed into a laundry room and master bath, while the second floor of the addition is home to the new master bedroom, closet, and balcony.
