Built in the 1830s, the farmhouse nestled among the rolling green hills of New York started life simply. From sheep herders to the owners of a silver company, the home passed from family to family, gathering history until, two decades ago, a new chapter began. “We bought it in 1998, when it was just the little house,” says the homeowner. “Not much work had been done to it.”
With the help of architect Jimmy Crisp and builder George Carrothers, the new homeowners set about executing the necessary updates. They started small—raising door frames and opening ceilings to expose original beams—but it wasn’t long before they added a porch and replaced the roof with one featuring dormers. “The renovation just continued snowballing,” the homeowner adds.
Eventually, the string of projects led to a full addition designed to give the family everything they needed while enhancing—but not obscuring—the original structure’s Colonial charm. “We took our cues from the original house and mixed it with some period detailing,” says Jimmy. He adds that the final design “felt comfortable to the vernacular architecture of the region and the time” while respecting the original farmhouse.
