Lippincott House

This incredible house began as a somewhat dilapidated farmhouse that was in danger of being demolished to make way for an assisted living facility. When the town refused to allow the demolition of the historic home, a plan to rescue the home ensued. The house was moved across the street to a new location, and then renovations began. The reimagined original three-bedroom retained the charm and warmth of the home, but with a more functional design for modern living. Changes began with an impressive two-story foyer and included an open concept area with a large family room, a kitchen with a breakfast room and a butler pantry for entertaining, a formal dining room with a fireplace that leads to a huge great room, and a study. A two-car garage was incorporated into the plans with an office over it on the second floor. The remainder of the second floor was designed for contemporary family living with a large primary suite, complete with a study, and four additional bedrooms with three bathrooms. While the humble farmhouse underwent a dramatic change, the architects retained the historic feel and warmth of the original house while updating the home to create a functional residence for modern living. The result is an impressive home that includes extensive amenities and breath-taking curb appeal.
