Farmhouse on an Orchard
Creating a large addition for this turn of the century Victorian without uprooting its traditional charm was a nice challenge for this project.  This Victorian home had plenty of formal rooms and old country cozy spaces but they needed a nice great room for a growing teenage son's new found social life.  The solution was derived straight from the owners' wish list -- a new large room, a small breakfast area, a new entrance and mud room to replace an odd entrance through the formal dining area and a place with lots of sun. 
An addition to the rear of the home literally spanning the entire length of the house was the solution.  The created bonus was a partial second level space above the Great Room creating a  new Master Bedroom Suite which rivals today's new home requirements such as a large walk in closet and a private Master Bathroom.  Using the existing home as a guide for the exterior materials real wood planking, a combination stone and brick fireplace, true divided lite windows and a metal roof complete the inconspicuous addition to this old charmer.
