Found: The Backyard

This home had ignored the property's best feature: the bucolic backyard. So a dynamic new light-filled family space was built right out in it, to capture views in every direction. A large bluestone patio provides an even more direct outdoor experience. Other upgrades include: a new, inviting front porch with dramatic new 2-story circular foyer inside; a new master suite "retreat" wing, to balance an opposing garage wing on the facade; and an ample, skylit kitchen to handle the needs of this active family with style. A rhythmic circulation gallery helps organize the many spaces on the first floor.
