Jamaica Plain Residence

Boston is full of incredible old homes with irreplicable bones. We had the thrill of restoring some of those old bones with a gut renovation and a third-floor addition in this grand, three-story house in Jamaica Plain. We started on the main level, where we moved structural elements around to create a larger, more unified space for the whole family to enjoy. We connected the kitchen to the living and the sitting rooms, and the new rear deck. Then, we layered on the function with a brand new butler pantry and a brand new mud/laundry room. From there, you can make your way up the restored butler stairs to the second floor, where you’ll find three redone bedrooms, two renovated bathrooms, a new den, and a new front deck. But the most significant rejuvenation of the house happened on the third floor, where we transformed the entire floor into a master suite. We reworked the roofline to add more space but kept its original aesthetic to maintain the classic attic angles. The result is a true master suite that includes a sitting area, a double-sided fireplace, and a clawfoot tub. All in all, it was a project which saw a lot of modern brought in, but also a ton of old brought back to life through thoughtful design and restoration.
