When Dr. Dominic Angelo Rizzo and Dr. Elizabeth Brown-both podiatrists-renovated their home, they knew that they wanted to honor it’s 200-year-old past. Working with JDH Remodeling, they were able to get back to the home’s basics and restore it to it’s former glory.
Removing the concrete plaster from the walls revealed two brick fireplaces, one of which is now exposed in an upstairs bedroom. While the aging brick often crumbled off along with the plaster, salvageable sections are highlighted as wine niches between the dining room and sitting room.
Although the interior walls and fireplace are new, the thick mantel and door casings tell a different story.
Many of the accessories seen throughout the home help to establish the age-old atmosphere.
Once all was said and done, the homeowners were satisfied with the character of the home, and the seamless transition between old and the new that was made to look old.
