We doubled the size of this Victorian farmhouse in Watermill, New York by designing an addition that added 2,500 square feet. The addition featured more spacious rooms and improved circulation for a family that would use it full-time during the summer. The finished house receives considerably more light than before.
The original section of the house is separated from the newer section by a swath of East-West circulation space that provides access to both the parking court and the pool. This space is bookended by a stair tower on each end. We added new finishes to the entire exterior, including cedar shingles on the roof and sides and new shutters.
