Restoration

1700's Chester County Farmhouse:
ECT demolished a section of the home and built an addition which included a new kitchen and stone fireplace with an attached sunroom to mimic an old enclosed porch. Mahogany deck with stone archway just off the back of the kitchen. That interior portion utilized salvaged chestnut beams, mantle and island countertop. All new floors were white oak. Soapstone kitchen base-cabinet countertops. Quaint foyer/mudroom and butler hallway with custom built-in cabinetry. Powder room with beadboard walls. Also custom pantry in between. Second floor was master bedroom with attached master bath and custom walk-in closet. Custom built-in hallway bookcase. We converted a second floor bedroom into a laundry room and separate hall bathroom. New closet space created in hallway across. Third floor we built a cozy conditioned living space. HVAC utilized state of the art geo-thermal system. Copper roof over sunroom and patio and new cedar over the rest. Handsome new roof with columns over the front door adds a more formal appearance than the rest of the structure, which is somewhat rustic in comparison. New doors with side-lights were installed off the back of the old living room with a new pent roof over top that opens up onto a curved flagstone patio that overlooks several acres of horse pastures. Our new work seamlessly blended to the existing house both inside and out. As is the case with all ECT projects, this addition/renovation was built with the style and charm of an old home, but with the sophistication and efficiency of a new one.
