The expansion and development of this home was conducted in two phases. The owners’ development program called for a two-storey addition to accommodate a new kitchen, great room and master bedroom suite. The original single car rearaccess garage was supplemented with a new two-car garage and the new basement space connected to the rear yard with an exterior stone stair. Lastly, the original ground and second floor spaces were reconsidered to provide a functional and flowing floor plan. The aggressive set of requirements was masterfully executed in a manner that maintains the charm and scale of the original home and its place in the cultural landscape of West Mineola.
