Handsome Home

For the 2013-2014 season of This Old House TV, general contractor Tom Silva and the rest of the show's crew will renovate an 1872 Italianate in the historic Boston suburb of Arlington. The program will feature the update and expansion of the 2,100-square-foot house, which is in good shape, but, like many older houses, suffers from an outdated floor plan and multiple rounds of renovations by past owners.

Shown: With nearly all its exterior details intact, the Arlington house is a good example of the Italianate style, featuring a hipped roof, corbeled cornices with a wide overhang, and a central tower-like element.
