Queen Anne Craftsman

A house flush with trim details and built-ins.

This 1904 Queen Anne Craftsman home was remodeled in the 1980s and desperately in need of injecting some new life to the plan. The new homeowners were thrilled with the location and lot size, but couldn’t make the layout work for them. There were many rooms, all tiny and cramped, with several unnecessary staircases breaking up the flow.

By opening up the main floor, we created a grand space for entertaining, a quiet window seat off the entry, and a generous mudroom at the back entrance. The 1980s family room addition a few steps lower than the kitchen is now better integrated with the rest of the home. This house now has three full levels of living space, including a finished basement and second-floor master suite. We enlarged the small second-floor deck to run the length of the front façade, which adds outdoor living space above a generous new front porch. We designed a new two-car garage in back that matches the exterior of the house.
