Historic Family Home

These homeowners grew up in Historic Bartlett and it was always their dream to return and build a home that would accommodate their grown children and growing grandchildren. A multi-acre lot with an abundance of natural trees and wildflowers was located and it was vital that as much was salvaged as possible. The front and back of the home is flanked in windows to let as much natural light in as possible, as well as the views of the surrounding vegetation and gardens. The kitchen opens up to a sun porch that makes you feel immersed in the surrounding nature of the backyard while you sit by the fire, catch the game or read a book with the grandkids.

Inside the home, the downstairs was made with seating for all, whether it be in the kitchen, the dining area which links the kitchen to the living space, or the living space itself. The master bedroom was also designed to let in views of the wide open backyard. The upstairs holds bedrooms, reading nooks, and a Jack and Jill bathroom. The home was furnished with pieces passed down through the years within the family and gives a sense of being at home the moment you walk through the front door.
