The homeowners wanted an unobtrusive house that would keep within the scale and aesthetic of the neighborhood, so they opted for a top-to-bottom remodel rather than tear down the existing home. Architect Tyler Engle gave the house a quiet but thoughtful design in a pared down Hamptons Style.
With an exterior that is deliberately understated, small details, like the mitered outside corners of the shingles, take on added importance, as does the quality and finish of the shingles themselves.
The interior spaces feature deep window jambs and heavy base and crown molding. As with the exterior, the detailing is honest and precise. To play against the crisp, white traditional millwork, the homeowner, who has a background in interior design, chose strong colors like the deep purple of the dining room.
The open kitchen and large, adjoining pantry/laundry room showcase well-crafted cabinetry that lends both spaces a serene, almost Shaker quality.
