Solar Traditional House

Our goal when re designing and rebuilding this home was to keep within the scope of the long established neighborhood where residents have lived for decades. In other words not to over build and create an overbuilt home without charm or character. We kept the front facade of the house as the only wall left standing and designed a new solar home updated to current standards with the curb appeal and charm it originally had when it was first built. A new front porch was built along with a new approach with blue stone. The original footprint was enlarged for a spacious master suite which included walk in closet, elegant master Bath and a large but charming master bedroom overlooking the manicured grounds and pool. A 2 story dining room with windows galore was added with a view of a the rear garden. The house is not overly large but lives large with a separate living room, dining room, family room and 3 bedrooms and ensuites.
