"My wife and I always knew we wanted to own a piece of those mountains."


From the beginning, we understood that the view would be paramount. Limited to a two-bedroom house, we still wanted the home to feel expansive. To us that meant an open plan with lots of glass and a generous porch oriented towards the view.



The Homestead


This 1900’s stone colonial, located in suburban Philadelphia, underwent a two-phase renovation.The first phase of construction included the renovation of existing space as well as a large addition to create a kitchen, family room, and entry area. The second phase was a home office and master suite addition. Wherever possible and appropriate, the details of the original woodwork were matched in the new wood construction with the goal of making the new work seamless with the original home.



Sitting on the highest portion of the property, the new spaces are light filled, open and warm.


Built in the mid 1800s and located on seven acres, this stone house had been added onto room by room over the last century. The client’s program called for a breakfast room addition and kitchen renovation that would respect the qualities of the original structure, resolve a difficult circulation pattern, and take advantage of the spectacular views. A second phase of work would include a new garage and a new pool with cabana.
