How do you take a bland, 1980’s contemporary home, and turn it into the embodiment of the French country style? That was the challenge presented to Visbeen Associates with the Stoneybrook.
The ominous original exterior was transformed into a charming, inviting cottage. Double dormers were added in the sloping roof, while gray siding was exchanged for yellow, framed by cream-colored trim and a quaint stone facade.
The interior was as much changed as the outside of the home. Extreme attention to detail enabled a complete metamorphosis of the inside spaces. In addition, the home was expanded in the renovations. The back wall was bumped out to extend the kitchen and add a family room on the main level. This also allowed for an exercise room to be installed adjacent to the new home entertainment center on the lower level.
