Queen Anne Renovation

(Interior decor by Alexa Hampton)

01overview

A Country Cottage and Charming Summer House

This turn of the century Queen Anne Victorian was in disrepair, and also needed complete modernization for an extended family weekend retreat. The existing house was renovated and brought back to its original grandeur, while a large rear addition was added to create an open large chef’s Kitchen with informal dining, screened porch, mudroom and exterior terraces that lead to the new pool and pool house.

The interior decoration was done by Alexa Hampton and is featured in her book The LANGUAGE of INTERIOR DESIGN (available from Amazon).
