Country House

Built in 1815, this modest country house represents all that is essential in a historic renovation–original flooring, historic details and general restraint. This house tells the story of so many houses throughout the Hudson Valley. In the spirit of rural adaptation, the master suite addition was built by relocating a small barn from a nearby farm.

This 1,800-square-foot renovation was primarily an interior overhaul with specific attention paid to upgrading the kitchen, bathrooms and mechanical systems. The strength of this project was rooted in what we eventually determined as “what not to do”. With so much to embrace about the house, our work required a delicate touch to floor plan alterations, millwork, and general finishes.
