Greek Revival | Details
This early 19th century Greek Revival had not been well cared for, but its classic architecture was still intact. Set prominently on a knoll above a verdant lawn, the 3,900 square-foot house was meticulously renovated, with additions to accommodate a young family. Exuberant 9” wide and 3” deep interior casings were restored, vinyl siding carefully removed from the trim and finish underneath, and the porch rebuilt and extended to connect to the clapboard side-addition that houses the family room. Rather than duplicating the clapboard siding of the original house, the new rear wing is of board-and-batten siding, highlighting its function as the working center of the house. The kitchen, breakfast room and butler’s pantry feature highly crafted neo-Victorian trim and cabinetry that add drama and elegance.
