This is an addition and renovation to a stately stone colonial in the picturesque stretch of Kentmere Parkway in Wilmington's historic district. All of the exterior materials had to be in keeping with the strict guidlines of the commitee producing a seamless transition between the existing structure and the new space. Most houses of this era lacked the gathering rooms that are so common in todays newer homes. The addition is approximately 25 Feet X 18 Feet and is built from much of the existing stone taken down during the demolition. Reclaimed Chicago brick was used for the main room and white oak flooring was tied into the existing home. Brushed Carrara Marble countertops over walnut and painted maple cabinetry were used in the kitchen. It was a pleasure to work with Period Architecture and wonderful homeowners to create a very useful and successful space.
