Kelly Residence

In Arlington's Donaldson Run neighborhood, an existing 1950's side-hall Colonial is transformed with side & rear additions, plus a top to bottom interior make-over.

Perched prominently above the street, the redesigned house responds to, and commands its surrounds. A larger in-ground garage & south facing Garden room replace an existing tight one-car garage & screen porch. A new 2nd floor master suite redefines the front house width to create a balanced center-hall facade. The enlarged portico engages house to yard. A low-slung hip roof, with broad overhangs, gives scale and visually reduces overall height.

The owners are empty nesters. The remade house responds to their specific tastes, but, also the broader market to recapture an important investment. They will enjoy their makeover for the immediate future and hope to be well positioned when the time comes to put their custom home on the market and move on.
