Video Tour: The Essex House After

A cottage in the woods gets a makeover for parents who may need special accomodations as they grow older

Welcome to the Essex House, owned by John and Julie Corcoran. The Corcorans remodeled a cottage on their property with Julie's parents in mind, whom they hope will live comfortably in the modified home. Designed to help these loving grandparents live comfortably while moving closer to their grandchildren, the layout of the in-law quarters anticipates changes to accessibility and mobility the couple may experience as they grow older. First floor living, no steps to navigate, and easy to open fixtures are just some of the features the house acquired during the renovation.
