Journey Through Scotland: Glasgow

The only regret I have about my recent trip to Scotland is that I was not able to see more of this beautiful country. Our trip focused on Glasgow and Edinburgh but unfortunately we did not make it up to the Highlands this time. I read beforehand that Glasgow was an industrial town and it certainly had that feel. Gritty and urban along the streets which contrasted with the beautiful sandstone buildings extending up above the storefronts.

Beacon Hill Renovation Post #1

Follow along with us each week as we bring you the transformation of this Beacon Hill townhouse!

We want to bring to you the progress of our Hancock Street renovation project.  This single-family row house, set within the historic and picturesque neighborhood of Beacon Hill, has shown its true potential from the beginning.  Although the building needed to be completely gutted, floors and all, our proposed design of each level emulates a classic style with a grand yet functional approach.  This project is set for completion in early 2014 and will feature 5 bedrooms, 5 full bathrooms (including floor through Master Suite w/ Dressing Hall, large walk-in closets, and adjacent Study), 3 half baths, 2 bars, an Elevator, Entertainment Loft w/ Powder Room and Bar, Au Pair Suite, terraced garden w/ pergola and bluestone seating area, and much more.  We hope to create the idyllic setting for this Beacon Hill home, inside and out, reminiscent of its past yet enduring for its future.
