South Dartmouth House

Renovations to this house re-orient rooms to better appreciate the property’s beautiful vistas of the Slocum River. A new front hall leads into a great room offering the first view of the water. This double-height space, which serves both living and dining functions, connects all other principal rooms: kitchen, media room, and outdoor sitting deck. A painting studio, added to the second level, overlooks this space. Rolling barn doors and shutters allow rooms to be closed for privacy when desired. New siding and windows; insulation; and new systems, including a solar array, update the house and reduce its environmental impact.
