House on Turtle Back traditional-dining-room
 

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.

Those are Anderson 400 series in size TW3052. Each window is about 3'2" wide by 5'-2" high. If you are considering something similar, be sure to use tempered glass if the bottom of the window will be within 18" of the floor.

The table was purchased in California in the 1970s. It is very similar to a Parsons table.
