Adirondack Great Room Addition + Renovation
Rockland County, New York
Location: New City, NY
Status: Under Construction
Size: 850 s.f. Addition + 1,450 s.f. Renovation = 2,300 s.f. Total
This existing home had been owned by the family for decades, and the patriarch of the family had always dreamed of doing an addition to this house to take advantage of the beautiful vistas from the property. It was, after all, the reason he originally purchased the property in the 1960's when the area was more rural and life was simpler. Unfortunately, that dream was not realized during his lifetime. Upon their father's passing, the next generation decided to undertake the addition and renovation to the home in honor him; his dream is being realized and fulfilled posthumously.
The project consists of a one-story great room addition on the first floor of the house which maximizes the views to the landscape beyond. In addition, on the first floor, the existing kitchen will be expanded and renovated with the existing wall between the kitchen and living room removed, as well as the wall between the existing house and new great room addition. The end result will be an "open concept" living / dining / kitchen / great room space which will be perfect for large family gatherings and entertaining.
In addition to the work in the home's public areas, a master bedroom suite is planned for the first floor, which will allow the homeowners to age in place during the decades ahead. Two large bedrooms on the second floor will be converted into four smaller but still generously-sized bedrooms for the couple's grown children.
An Adirondack style was chosen by the homeowners for their home. Design features include a fireplace and exposed beams in the new great room, black prairie-style windows, and massive stone piers so signature to the style.
