Partridge Lane


A complete interior and exterior renovation transformed this previously bland 1950s house into a timeless beauty. On the exterior, the ordinary red brick was whitewashed, double casement windows were replaced with single casement windows, shutters were updated, and additional French doors were added. A heavy brick balcony over the entry door was replaced with a light wrought iron railing, and a formalized entry drive and plantings enhanced the front yard.

On the rear of the house, a new bluestone terrace was created to transition the rear of the home to a new formal rear lawn. Additional doors from several rooms off of the back opened up the house to the terrace and the lawn.

Almost all interior rooms were significantly altered — most notably the entry hall where a new sweeping circular stair replaced an uninspired staircase. The oversized kitchen was updated and an intimate breakfast room was created, overlooking the rear terrace.

New millwork throughout the house and a stunning interior installation by Darryl Carter work in unison to create a youthful, yet timeless home.
