Residence on Ruane West Newton, MA


Revitalizing a 1950’s Ranch

The owners of this property purchased the dilapidated 1950’s ranch intending to demolish it and build a modern residence in its place. A yearlong demolition delay caused them to rethink their plan, and instead, asked Slocum Hall to design an addition and reconfigure the existing home. The design included a prominent two-car front-facing garage converted into living space with 12′ ceilings; an addition housing a new garage, mudroom, and expanded kitchen spaces; four-bedroom suites; and an expansive basement for recreation and informal entertaining.

This project won a Newton Preservation Award.
