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. When the project was completed, 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 leads to a huge great room; an adjacent study offers a convenient working space. 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. There are four additional bedrooms and three bathrooms on the second floor.

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.
