The homes feature stunning additions which were designed to complement their magnificence. Come and take a look!

1. New English Estate House — Gladwyne, PA.

A character-filled home which is a pleasure to look at, not only for its grandiosity but also its historical detail.  

The exterior is picture perfect.

2. Historic Flourtown Addition.

This home is a classically styled addition that features a new kitchen, sun room, office, mudroom and master suite expansion to a very historic house in Flourtown, Pennsylvania. 

The addition was designed to respect the home's rich history, while also being very customized to the contemporary lifestyle of the owners: a family of four who loves the outdoors, entertaining, and enjoying their natural, historic surroundings. The new wing ties together the varied aesthetics of the home, while and ensuring the promise of a bright future for the generations to come.

A one story addition.

A one story addition links the historic main mass of the house with a new kitchen wing on the rear, while framing the existing pool and patios.

Elegance and beauty

This elegant porch has fluted Doric columns and limestone steps down to a flagstone patio. A standing seam copper roof provides visual texture.

3. Sparta, New Jersey Cottage Addition.

A Tudor inspired addition to a lakeside cottage in Sparta, New Jersey enlarged the residence while maintaining local vernacular details and aesthetics.

Bedroom bliss.

The bedroom is as romantic as it is lavish.
