Residence on Waban

Around Town: Newton, MA Part 2

June 30, 2022

At Slocum Hall Design Group, we work in many towns around the Metro West of Boston and beyond. A few months ago, we highlighted some of our favorite projects in Newton, one of our most beloved locations. This month we highlight another three in Newton and, as always, look forward to designing more new homes in this fine city.

Residence on West Newton Hill

Residence on Waban

One of our most recent projects, this home located in West Newton, needed a total transformation. We removed an attic apartment with a dedicated staircase and integrated the space into the primary residence. The floor plan was completely reconfigured, opening up all the living areas, updating the entire flow of the home without enlarging the original footprint.

Residence on Ruane

The revitalization of this 1950’s ranch in West Newton received a Newton Preservation Award. We reconfigured the existing home, including converting a prominent two-car front-facing garage into a living space. The addition, with 12 ceilings, features a new garage, mudroom, and expanded kitchen spaces; four-bedroom suites; and an expansive basement for recreation and informal entertaining.

Residence on Waban

Residence on Waban

Located in the Waban neighborhood of Newton, this 1916 stucco home, built with references to the Craftsman style, was updated with a new kitchen, family room, and mudroom while preserving the charm and historical significance of the street-facing elevation.  Additionally, a former sleeping porch was enclosed to create a new bathroom and a new master suite.
