“The Gothic House.” Renovation of and additions to a highly unusual Gothic Revival / Queen Anne house in the Historic District. The burned 6,000 sf house was enlarged to 7,500 sf. Its lost Gothic detailing was recreated to recapture the character and coherence that the house had lost early in the 20th century.
Featured case study in the book The Vintage House: A Guide to Successful Renovations and Additions, by Hewitt and Bock.
