Bay Road House

The renovation and expansion of this house for a growing family proceeded in three phases. In the first, most of an existing small cottage was gutted and transformed into a bright and spacious all-purpose living space with vaulted ceilings, skylights and ample windows. In the second, a Shingle Style addition containing a round living room and four much-needed bedrooms gave the house a new face on the street. In the third, the connecting bedroom was transformed into a dining room with bead board walls and a coffered ceiling, with large windows on both sides looking out onto courtyard gardens with patios. From the street, the indented first floor porch and angled doorway lead to to a small entry hall lit by an oval window. A single column and a section of round ceiling beam separate the entry from the circular living room. While the round shape is fun, it also provided a way to give the house two windows on each floor with a view of Kingston Bay, while still meeting the required setback from the street. It also presented opportunities for creative detailing and challenging carpentry.
