Updated Shingle-Style Home Transformation

As a primary resource in the Chevy Chase Village Historic district, this circa 1892-1916 shingle-style home was expansive yet dated, requiring a top-to-bottom refresh. GTM Architects designed a rear one-story family room addition to complement the historic house, along with a full renovation of the interior to update the floor layouts without impacting the original exterior elevations.

The main level now provides a generous mudroom entry leading to an enlarged kitchen, which opens into a new breakfast room and family room added on the rear of the house. On the second floor, the original four-bedroom, two bath layout was converted into an owners’ suite featuring an expansive walk-in closet and owner’s bath, along with two additional bedroom suites with en-suite baths. Two attic bedrooms were retained, with the remaining attic space reworked to provide walk-in closets and en-suite baths for each. The home’s unfinished basement was renovated into a rec room with a full bath and additional storage, while the existing garage was converted into a new home office with golf simulator.

On the exterior, the home’s unique wraparound front porch with arched openings now extends out to a rear deck with steps leading from the family room down to a new entertaining patio and putting green. With the rear addition, the home now boasts 6,351 livable square feet with a more functional open layout and a fully refurbished exterior that breathes fresh life into this historic house.
