Award-Winning Antique Restoration
This New Haven residence is a 4500 sq. ft. Georgian brick colonial built in 1909. Impressive as the home’s stature is, the interior had not been updated at all making it effectively unlivable for a modern lifestyle. The electrical system was antiquated and presented a real fire hazard. The antiquated kitchen along with the bathrooms, with just bathtubs and not one shower in the home, were largely non-functional spaces. Furthermore, the existing trim details were not consistent with the period of the home and further detracted from the already dilapidated interior finish.
SCOPE OF THE PROJECT:
The goals of the project were to restore the historic beauty of the home via a complete interior renovation, which would preserve the essence and architectural style of the period while seamlessly incorporating critical updates to the mechanical infrastructure. Additional design considerations included thoughtful and creative improvements and alterations to transform the home into a comfortable environment for living, entertaining and the professorial pursuits of research, writing, and book collecting.
