Renovations Modernize a 1970s New Jersey Colonial With Columns

Posted by Holli McRae on 10/28/14 2:33 PM

This classic 1970s colonial is in a great neighborhood on 2 beautiful acres, but its layout was not suited for modern family life. A local family bought it because they loved the yard, the area and the schools, but they knew it would need an update to work well for them.

"The family wanted to open up the space, give it a nice flow, let in more natural light and expand the views of the backyard," says architect Catherine Knight of Knight Architects. She responded with a thorough makeover, creating a family-friendly entry and mudroom, an open-plan layout along the rear of the house that opens up to their spectacular backyard, a reconfigured guest room and first-floor bathroom, and a renovated master bathroom.
