Kids' Room

Biondo repaired the existing stairway, keeping the original balustrades, and transformed an attic area—which had old shutters and doors for floorboards—into a finished playroom, complete with beadboard ceiling, knee-wall storage, and a fanciful interior window that overlooks the family room and kitchen. "From that window, the girls lower notes down to us while we're cooking, using a jump rope and basket," says Tracy.

Two children's bedrooms sit above the new master suite, just down the hall from the attic-turned-playroom. Slanted ceilings that follow the lines of the eaves add a quirky old-house feeling to 9-year-old Maya's bedroom (shown here) and other second-floor spaces.
