A traditional 2 story “Cape Cod salt box” was completely re-imagined into a 3 story home. The main body of the house containing a living room and bedrooms was left intact. A third story containing a kid’s suite was added on top. The attached garage was replaced with a new 2 story addition. The new modern open addition incorporated: a sky lit finished basement; a new kitchen, dining, family room and mudroom on the first floor; a private office on the second floor and two outdoor terraces. Terraces have views of Carnegie Lake across the street. A new swimming pool and patio were added in the back yard.
