Generations Reunite

Ridgeway Street, Newington, CT

This Cape Cod style home had belonged to my great grandmother for decades.  After she passed away when I was four a family bought it.  Years later after I finished college and was looking to purchase my first home the family told my uncle that they were going through a divorce and that it was going to end up in foreclosure.  They asked me if I was interested in buying and I jumped at the chance to bring it back into the family!

After purchasing the home, there was a lot of work to be done!  We removed the wall in between the kitchen and dining room to give it an open kitchen/dining/entertaining feel.  The separation came in the form of a peninsula the accommodated three stools.  New wood cabinets were installed along with new countertops and appliances.  The white oak hardwood floors were sanded, and a layer of polyurethane was added to make them shine!  The bathrooms were both updated with new vanities, lighting, mirrors, and tiles in the showers.  The cast iron tubs were re-glazed.  The room between the garage and the kitchen became a three seasons porch that I dubbed “the lanai”,  It had Japanese furniture and shiplap walls, it looked so great! In the backyard, I added patio pavers as well as a white picket fence and flowers around the perimeter complete with a fire pit in the yard.
