Benson Beauty

Project overview

This 100+ year old home grew bigger with an addition that housed a new private master bedroom, walk-in closet and ensuite oasis! Architectural detail complemented the existing exterior and matched the interior, including trim, flooring- even hardware right down to the original brass screws for door hinges!

The Spotlight Treatment

Our team designed the home’s addition, meeting the goal of bringing the owner’s vision to life, alongside of satisfying their practical needs. Once permits were secured and tradespeople in place, excavation began and the foundation was constructed. The new addition complemented the existing structure seamlessly, and was finished with Cape Cod wood siding and natural cedar shakes to compliment the original stucco, along with new soffits, fascia, downspouts, grading and a deck. Lepage solid wood windows allow for lots of natural light to pour into the home.

Inside, an enlarged passage to the new addition welcomes you into the space with custom built in cabinetry and coffered ceiling that really add to the wow factor! All trim, from floor to ceiling, were custom milled to match existing trim. Antique door plates, knobs, hinges and even an antique grill for heat ducting, were sourced and installed to match the existing features. Hardwood strip flooring tied together the original 100+ year old flooring.

The ensuite came together with a custom tiled shower, custom double vanity with reclaimed barn board and custom built-in cabinets. A private water closet houses the toilet for privacy, complete with custom pocket door. Matching antique door hardware and heat grates finish this new retreat off with style.
