Beacon Hill, Boston
When the clients decided it was time to move East to be closer to family, Boston – specifically historic Beacon Hill – seemed a natural place to settle.
Located on what may be the most beautiful street in Boston, the 1829 townhouse they fell in love with was almost impeccably preserved. Most of the home’s original architectural details had survived for almost two centuries.
Three of the home’s four floors needed little more than a decorative redo. The garden level, however, needed some additional intervention. The space was comprised of a series of small dark, rooms, including a galley kitchen, a full bath and bedroom, and a small living room with a flagstone fireplace. We reconfigured the space, eliminating walls and enlarging windows to create an open space with an expanded kitchen, a sunny casual dining nook, and an airy sitting area.
