The owners of this charming 40s-era residence sought to enlarge, re-proportion and update its living spaces while retaining the original English Country-style architectural character. The revised floor plan created a large master suite plus two bedrooms and baths upstairs, and added the nursery and office as rooms above the existing wings. Downstairs, a screened porch was transformed into a double-decked veranda and balcony for sweeping views of the lake they overlook. The updated kitchen gained workspace and functionality through a marble-topped island and cabinets.
