This 1920’s cottage is as charming as any fairy tale dwelling should be.  The client of course wished to keep its idyllic character intact, but simply needed more space.  Carefully planned additions preserved the original form of the house as much as possible.  A new bay window in the living room provided just the right amount of room for the client’s furniture, while a new miniature “house” – lightly connected to the original building – created space for a new master bedroom and bathroom. All interior and exterior details are consistent with the original house, creating a seamless experience throughout.
