New 1850's Greek Revival Farm House

This property was previously the site of a small 1850's farm house. However, over time, undisciplined remodelling destroyed the historic integrity of the building. Once we had documented portions of the building with the Historical Society, we dismantled the structure taking care to salvage materials that could be used in the new building or recycled in other 1850 buildings throughout New England..

There were no cars in the 1850's, only horses and buggies. And most detached garages look nothing like the main house. So how do we blend today's function with yester year's form? Emphasize the gable end roof style typical of Greek Revival and create a unique door that congers up images of the horse and buggy. Photo frm Engel-Voelkers

The interior of this classic home capitalizes on spaciousness, simple clean lines and under stated elegance. This dining room provides enough architectural detailing to establish a level of importance typical of the public spaces in homes during the mid 1800's. The room is square so a ceiling medallion works well with the perimeter ceiling panels. Photo from Engel-Voelkers...More

Fireplaces are located in all public rooms, again typical of homes without central heating. Delft tile was a cherished embellishment in homes during this period. Rather than use a hearth stone where wear and tear is at a minimum, cobolt blue ceramic tiles were used as a striking complement to the delft colors. Photo by Scott Design Inc.

Unlike most homes, the main stairwell is located away from the front entry and becomes an integral part of the living space. As such, there was a need to provide detailing to elevate it beyond its pedestrian function. Photo from Engel-Voelkers

Stair parts are a great place to express personality. Again, in the 1800's, it was not unusual to find alternating balluster styles climbing the stairs. Photo by Scott Design Inc.

The steps look like panelled boxes stacked to the ceiling! This attention to detail elevated what could have been a mundain and bulky structural element to the stature of fine furnishing and provided an elegant focal point at the main visual area of the home. Photo by Scott Design Inc.

Most of the finish materials used in this 1850's reproduction were sourced regionally as they would have been back then. The wood throughout the room is a red pine from Vermont and the field stone used for the fireplace was quarried in New York State. Photo from Engel-Voelkers

Following the "keeping room" concept from a time before appliances, this kitchen space accommodates a large table as well as a sitting area near the raised-hearth fireplace. The antique beams were salvaged from an 1800's Vermont barn. TV wiring has been provided above the mantle and in the end of the island facing the fireplace. Photo from Engel-Voelkers

If you are going to use a construction technique as a visual only, then use it accurately. Beams could have been placed across the ceiling only but that would have been incorrect. The use of these large beams indicates post and beam construction and as such should be placed accordingly. Hence, columns in the corners and beams running along the ceiling line fulfil the concept...More

The same New York field stone used on the walk ways of this house was brought into the mudroom over radiant heated floor. The wainscoting is made from floor planks reclaimed from the attic of the original 1850's farmhouse that was on this property but beyond restoration. Photo from Engel-Voelkers
