Nestled on 12 wooded acres just outside of town, this charming Victorian manor turned farmhouse offers up the best in relaxed living. When Don Oscai of OC Construction embarked on the home’s remodel, he was tasked with modernizing the home while still staying true to its original character. Preservation and transformation do a delicate dance throughout the home and their convergence results in a truly one-of-a-kind project.
On the exterior, this balance comes into full force chiefly with the siding. White Hardie board is a durable choice, and a linear fish scale detail surrounding a second-story bay window harkens back to a previous iteration of the home. A U-shaped porch plays host to a suite of rocking chairs, and the entire façade works to welcome visitors.
