Reconfiguring the first floor of this older home and adding just 20 square feet of space at the back and enclosing a balcony allowed for a more welcoming entry, open sightlines, an updated kitchen, and fixing a stairway issue.
The original kitchen had a peninsula that blocked access and views to the back deck. Adding a few extra feet across the back of the house allowed for a better connection to the new deck and dining room.
Enclosing the small balcony allowed us to add square footage to the house. We used that angled space to create a breakfast nook/coffee & wine bar with built-in seating
We kept many of the original features of the 1915 house.
