Location: Somerville, Massachusetts
Originally a circa-1910 Mansard Victorian, this Boston-area home is now a gorgeous, seamless blend of modern and tradition thanks to a 2007 addition and 2012 renovation of the original house, both by local architect Heather Weiss. The 2,100-square-foot home offers a revamped contemporary kitchen with custom cabinetry and Miele appliances, and the open dining area nearby steps right down to the extension: a sunny playroom that looks onto the patio through its glass walls.
The restored architecture of the original house can be felt in the living room with beautiful woodworking and a bay window, as well as in an upstairs bedroom with dormer windows. Towards the rear of the house on the upper level, a bedroom and home office feature large windows that bring light in while providing a view of the garden. The three-bedroom property also comes with a two-story garage/workshop.
