Side entry to mudroom and laundry
An entrance outside the garage on the left of the home leads to a sunken entryway also accessible from inside the garage. Up a short staircase, past a landing, are stairs to the basement and second floor, and to the right of the landing, a mudroom leading into the kitchen.
This layout is completely reconfigured from the original. Work included removing the existing basement staircase in order to push it back and widen the landing and entry staircase, at the foot of which a bench seat was added. New tile flooring and wood treads are among the updates.
In the mudroom, which also serves as the laundry room, a grill was removed, the laundry was relocated, and the room was updated with new tile flooring, windows and trim. The space features cabinetry in a Nordic White sheen, granite countertops and a white subway tile backsplash. The radiator was replaced with a period authentic cover to match the home’s historic character.
Also notable, but not visible, are full upgrades to mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems throughout the home.
