My family and I are caretakers of a unique house designed by a talented female architect more than half a century ago. It’s not for everyone, but it’s perfectly us. What started as a simple fix of the roof and windows morphed into a back-to-the-blocks renovation with the goal of keeping everything terrific about the original design while refreshing, reimagining, and preparing it for the next fifty. Welcome to our home.
