New England Colonial
This authentically shaped Salt Box house originally turned its back upon the ample Southern exposure and views afforded by its hilltop site. A large shed dormer was added on the south-facing roof, containing a new stair that leads between the second and new third floor. Windows surround the dormer, which allows light to flood into the center of the house, illuminating the second floor landing and spilling down to the first floor entry foyer. The kitchen was envisioned as a glassy extension of the open rear porch. Shaker style cabinetry and wide plank floors complement the simplicity of the house’s form.
