By 2004 the road skirting this 1735 center-hall saltbox had become a high-traffic shortcut for the Boston-bound commuters building homes nearby. The new addition shifts the primary gaze away from the now busy road and out to the landscape. A farmer’s porch scales down the new gable, joining the addition to the 1936 living room and inviting visitors to the new primary entry. The addition includes 1000 sf of new space accommodating an open kitchen, breakfast room and part of the remodeled master suite. The farm house kitchen has overlay cabinets with Vermont structural slate countertops and wide New England pitch pine flooring.
