An expansive veranda wraps around two sides of this cottage.
Architect Gordon Ridgely wanted to maintain the original beauty of this 100-year-old home while expanding the windows to update the exterior and capture more natural light. Many of the windows were shifted and enlarged, yet the façade remains quite true to its original design. Inside, nine bedrooms were rearranged into six to accommodate ensuite bathrooms for five of them, allowing the owners to entertain several couples at a time.
