Roberts Residence
Renovations and Additions

The owners of this home on a wooded corner lot in The Elizabeth Historic District desired an interior renovation plus an addition to consist of a library and master bedroom. The solution for the addition to this “American Foursquare” style was to extend one of the four corner rooms of the main floor out toward the street, providing a small form subordinate to the main house body and thus complimentary in scale. The library is located on the lower floor, is open to the dining room and has access to the wrap-around porch via French doors. Extensive windows, including the refurbished diamond-pattern leaded glass casements from the original structure, provide ample natural light.

The master suite above provides access to a sitting porch above the “bay” extension below with the diamond windows. Detailing is compatible with that of the original structure.
