Barcroft First Floor Addition


We expanded the main level of this 1947 colonial in the Barcroft neighborhood of Arlington with a first floor addition at the rear of the house. The new addition made room for an open and expanded kitchen, a new dining room, and a great room with vaulted ceilings. The new covered rear entrance off the driveway opens to a new mud room and powder room. The kitchen and great room are separated by partial brick walls from the original house with an exposed steel beam.

The updated kitchen has a large island, new maple shaker cabinets, silestone countertops, and stainless steel appliances with a BlueStar vermilion range. A glass and stone mosaic backsplash was installed behind the range and white subway tile backsplash was installed behind the bar sink.​

The two new covered porches have synthetic decking and cable railings and we installed new Pella windows, Hardie Plank siding, brick veneer, and roofing on the exterior.
