the master bathroom was created by combining two small rooms. The tiled shower
can be viewed through an interior window. The second-floor master bedroom (above)
encompasses the upper turret. Cory and Tenney added an oval window for more light
and a view of the large maple tree at the front of the house.
places so the dining room, which doubles as Cory’s office, would be adjacent to the new kitchen. Cory saw the
turret at the front of the room as an architectural “poetic
gesture,” which she maximized by placing the oval table,
presided over by an imposing bust of Napoleon, in its bay
of windows. Cherry-lined bookshelves with white trim
catch the sunlight and add a crisp depth to the room.
Upstairs, two rooms were combined into an elegant master bath outfitted with a steam shower and an
oversize soaking tub. In the master bedroom, the bay
windows of the upper turret flood the room with light.
A newly installed recessed oval window provides a view
into the lush vegetation of a nearby maple, giving the
room the ambience of a tree house hideaway. That window, the Dutch door in the kitchen, and turreted office,
Cory says, were things she’d always wanted.
“There’s something magical about certain things,
things that just get under your skin,”
Cory says. “We just added to what was
already here to make this house the one
we’d always want to stay in.”
