Admiral's House

This stately Georgian home in West Newton Hill, Massachusetts was originally built in 1917 for John W. Weeks, a Boston financier who went on to become a U.S. Senator and U.S. Secretary of War. The home’s original architectural details include an elaborate 15-inch deep dentil soffit at the eaves, decorative leaded glass windows, custom marble windowsills, and a beautiful Monson slate roof. Although the owners loved the character of the original home, its formal layout did not suit the family’s lifestyle. The owners charged Meyer & Meyer with complete renovation of the home’s interior, including the design of two sympathetic additions. The first includes an office on the first floor with master bath above. The second and larger addition houses a family room, playroom, mudroom, and a three-car garage off of a new side entry.

Front exterior by Sam Gray. All others by Richard Mandelkorn.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

A settee in a formal entryway is an immediate welcome for guests.
To my mind, nothing puts forth an air of welcome like a cozy place to sit. This high-back, tufted settee helps to make the formal entry feel less imposing and more relatable, especially with the casual throw and toss pillows.
Add more formal seating. In this grander front entryway, the look of the furniture has been kicked up a few notches. A high-backed tufted settee is a great spot for putting on or removing shoes; a tripod lamp lights up the corner and draws attention to the intricate moldings and the artwork.
What Is a Settee?A settee is a small sofa with two arms and a back. It usually seats two and is more upright and slender than a typical sofa. Unlike most sofas, a settee can easily look at home in an entryway, in a bedroom or even pulled up to the dining table, thanks to its elegant proportions and upright posture.
