SAGAMORE ROAD, MARBLEHEAD, MA TRADITIONAL WHOLE HOME RENOVATION

When we first visited this house we saw that it has good bones but was not much more than a collection of small disjointed rooms. We set ourselves to taking out many of the interior walls and widening most of the openings on the first floor. We bumped out the first floor kitchen a few feet, added some windows and a new entry. We remodeled the kitchen and master bath and took out the false ceilings on the second floor. The rest was 'paint and powder'. Graphic elements like the master bedroom at the french doors railing over looking the garden, simple fireplaces, traditional hardware and paneling and lots of white paint make this tiny home feel big without losing the intimacy that made it charming in the first place. This home proves that traditional design doesn't always mean fussy over-embellished detailing. Clean, simple lines go a long way toward making the right statement in tight spaces.
