Beacon Hill Residence: Before/After

One of our recently completed projects is a 6 level 6,000 square ft brick row house located in the Beacon Hill neighborhood of Boston. When we initially walked through the house with the development team, we immediately saw its potential as a residence for a growing family.

Our proposal would involve opening the house up from front to rear to allow for light penetration into the center of the home, at the same time drawing one towards the private rear garden. In an attempt for this row house to feel more spacious than what its restricting footprint would typically allow we provided communal zones segregated by floor level. These zones would provide an active family space for entertaining yet maintain privacy in corresponding private sleeping quarters.

Over the course of the next month, we will explain some of the process that led us to the end product showcased in Houzz. Following are Before/After floor plans, as well as Before/After photographs of various areas. The house is now for sale and you can view the listing at Campion and Co. Real Estate. Our beautiful photographs were done by Diane Anton Photography.
