House on Turtle Back traditional-exterior

House on Turtle Back

This project began with a handsome center-entrance Colonial Revival house in a neighborhood where land values and house sizes had grown enormously since my clients moved there in the 1980s. Tear-downs had become standard in the area, but the house was in excellent condition and had a lovely recent kitchen. So we kept the existing structure as a starting point for additions that would maximize the potential beauty and value of the site

A highly detailed Gambrel-roofed gable reaches out to the street with a welcoming entry porch. The existing dining room and stair hall were pushed out with new glazed walls to create a bright and expansive interior. At the living room, a new angled bay brings light and a feeling of spaciousness to what had been a rather narrow room.
At the back of the house, a six-sided family room with a vaulted ceiling wraps around the existing kitchen. Skylights in the new ceiling bring light to the old kitchen windows and skylights.

At the head of the new stairs, a book-lined sitting area is the hub between the master suite, home office, and other bedrooms.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The Angled Bay WindowNamed because the side walls of the bay are angled, an angled bay is probably the image that comes to mind when someone says "bay window." It's just about the most ubiquitous bay window there is, especially as versions of it, at least the smaller, preassembled ones, are sold by the scores by the big-box retailers. A bigger angled bay will have to be built onsite and will likely require a foundation.
