Lincoln Drive Residence

Full renovation in Germantown, Philadelphia
3,000 sf, 5 bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths
Restoration of existing detail & remodeling in keeping with the spirit of the original

This beautiful Tudor-style home had been long-neglected and was last used as a rooming house. Our approach was to save as much original character and detailing as possible, while at the same time introducing modern amenities.

With over 3,000 sf and seven bedrooms, the project was a very large undertaking. The first task was the kitchen. A chimney and an old servant's stair were removed, opening up the space dramatically. A new opening was made between the kitchen and the formal dining room, and an existing sun porch was converted to a breakfast room. This, along with a revamped butler's pantry, make the kitchen a true focal point of the house.

Upstairs, the second-floor bathroom and bedrooms were completely redone. The third floor was converted from three bedrooms to a single large master suite, with a dramatically raised ceiling in the bedroom, a large bathroom with separate tub and shower, a walk-in closet, and a private office.

Inside and out, this home the home was fully refreshed. This home sold for asking price just two days after going on the market.
