A GRAND COLONIAL, THOUGHTFULLY RENOVATED

Our long-term clients called us when they bought this Portland Heights home to help them evaluate what could be done to make it better suit them, while respecting the lovely original architecture. The house was generally in good condition but it had been neglected in recent years and had had some updates that were not aging well. We renovated the kitchen and bathrooms, keeping the design within the existing footprint. Next we opened up the awkward entry by relocating a closet, allowing traffic to flow naturally and opening site lines to the open stairway and living room. Finally, we refreshed all of the surfaces and furnished the main living areas.
