Sharon Antique Colonial

This historic colonial style home was constructed in 1772. I love old historic homes packed with character and solid materials.  Due to the existing timber structural system and historic charm, KMA decided to preserve the existing home in its entirety and add a 1200 SF two-story addition only at the rear of the home. While a Special Permit was still required for this pre-existing non-conforming lot, the new addition meets current zoning requirements and the proposed design minimizes visual disruption of the historic antique home from public view.  

The requirements for this home was unique as the Owner runs a small daycare in a portion of the new addition. Therefore the lower level required a larger footprint to accommodate a 400 SF classroom and large kitchen with informal eating area.  The second floor hosts a new master suite with full bathroom and vaulted ceiling.  The addition was broken into two volumes with the lower portion featuring a hipped roof alongside a double volume with a gable roof.  This allows the large addition to appearing smaller in scale and keeps the overall massing smaller than the existing home. 


The addition features a new Kitchen, eating Nook, Mudroom, 400 SF classroom, Second floor Master Bedroom Suite.

The exterior is clad in Eastern white cedar shingles to match the existing antique home.
