Beacon Hill Townhouse

This was a gut renovation of an 1823 Beacon Hill Townhouse and the goal of the project was to make the house live like a modern family home but to keep the charm of it's history. Many of the mouldings and details were either restored or reproduced to maintain the character of the Hill. Much attention and planning was given to ensure the HVAC and and plumbing systems did not require any soffits in any of the rooms. In these old city homes, space for mechanicals can get extremely tight and without proper planning, they can create unwanted elements within the home. The home was also reinsulated with closed cell foam insulation and given a hybrid, duel fuel HVAC system which can operate on both natural gas or electricity. The home has a very understated elegance to it, which is reminiscent of the home prior to it's renovation.
