Wyndmoor, PA

A two storey family room addition has brought new life to this 1920’s stone house. Oversized windows, a large bay window, and French doors fill the first floor with light. Natural cherry built-in bookcases and a wet bar enhance the space, which has become the hub of activity and social gathering in the home. The French doors open onto a new terrace, with an arbor linking the addition to the original rear entrance. On the second floor, a sitting room off the master bedroom suite provides added quiet space for reading and sewing. The adjoining roof-covered porch, with its exposed framing and truss, breaks down the massing of the addition and provides architectural interest to the exterior elevation. Careful detailing and selection of matching stone make this large addition look original to the house.
