This historic renovation was closely scrutinized by the local preservation commission, but they need not have worried. Windows were restored rather than replaced, the exterior masonry was redone in keeping with the original style, and the chimneys and roof were updated, all with absolute fidelity to the home’s origins. It was Youngblood Builders’ goal and duty to ensure generations to come will be able to see this historic architecture through impeccable restoration.
Holding true to the original style, Youngblood Builders even took it a step further, adding salvaged steel doors and windows to create new points of interior architectural interest. A tight staircase was opened with an elegant brass and steel handrail, built to create elegance and flow.
Youngblood Builders worked in close collaboration with the landscape architect and residential architect to create a beautifully integrated site. The home is set on a spectacular piece of property with a majestic copper beech tree holding court, so naturally, elements of the environment were featured with intentional connectivity built into the project design. The addition of a new carriage house built in the precise style of the main home completes this property, rooting it in history while offering modern living at its best.
