Clean and Tidy

That same easy-going spirit is found throughout the home, a place with room for everyone. The wife says she feels as relaxed with a house full of guests at holiday time as she does on a quiet summer weekend with just the family. "The house had a wonderful, happy warmth to it and a genuine historical look," she says, noting what sold her on the place from the start. Then she sums up the real success of the reno: "And it still does."

Shown: The open lounge area on the third floor includes a wall-to-wall window seat and low-slung beanbag chairs.
