It was important to the homeowner to keep the integrity of this 1948 home — adding headroom and windows to the rooms on the second floor without changing the charm and proportions of the cottage.
The new design incorporates a tower in the master bedroom to add height and take advantage of the incredible view.
Also, a dormer in the master bathroom allows for more windows and a vaulted ceiling.
The bathroom vanity was designed to provide maximum storage.
A small, spare bedroom is now a spacious master closet that is accessed from the bathroom.
The second floor is modernized, the floor plan is streamlined, more comfortable and gracious.
