What They Did Downstairs
Tore Down the Existing House and Garage. A rundown 1947 Cape was razed to make room for a new 3,800-square-foot, three-story, L-shaped house on the small lot.
Carved Out First-Floor Living Space. The downstairs holds a dining room, living room, and garage in one wing, and an entry foyer, kitchen, breakfast nook, and family room in the other.
Added a Patio and Lap Pool. In the triangular backyard space created by the right-angled wings of the house is a bluestone terrace, which can be accessed by French doors throughout the first floor, and a narrow lap pool and spa.
