This traditional gem was in need of makeover when purchased by a young couple looking to create their dream home. We added modern sensibility while maintaining its classic appeal, and minimized the clutter while addressing privacy and useability concerns. The front yard in now a gentle sloping lawn on which children can play, surrounded by boxwood, agapanthus and other low maintenance flowering shrubs. The back yard now has a inviting pool and spa opening up to a brick patio with a firepit, outdoor kitchen and ample seating options. Clean modern lines and simple plantings blend seamlessly with the classic brick and traditional feel of this home.
