Home of the Week: Historic Renovation Retreat Road

Remodeling

In this restoration of an Westminster, S.C., historic 1840s home, old, wavy glass was located from various salvage yards to restore the home’s original windows.

Drywall was removed to uncover the original heart-pine wall. Care was taken when installing the new systems to preserve the historical part of the house.

In the renovations to the home’s addition from the 1960s, the kitchen was relocated to the center of the home to connect to the family room and create an open, modern floor plan, using materials consistent with the historical part of the home.

The redesign accommodates modern needs such as additional closets and a mud room.

Judges’ Comments | “Love the way they left a lot of the flooring and ceiling treatments and retained a lot of the classical features on the interior.”
