A complete renovation of this 1890s Stanford White House included a new kitchen, all new bathrooms, and significant alterations to all three floors. Initial structural remediation from the basement to the roof was necessary to level the house that was out of plumb by over three inches. In a house designed originally for a different era, five small kitchen related rooms were replaced by one large eat-in kitchen designed for serious cooks. The second floor has become a large master bedroom suite with a sitting room and home office. The third floor was transformed into one large central game room with flanking bedrooms, by combining several small rooms and enclosing what was formerly a maids’ sitting porch. Single pane windows that had been broken over the years were replaced with custom insulated windows in the original style.
