Custom Home Building | Serving Hampton Roads for 30 Years

Historic Ghent Area Home

This project was twofold in nature, combining transforming an old decrepit side porch into a new addition with a large indoor pool with sauna and a relaxing sitting area along with a completely renovated kitchen, laundry and breakfast room. The main house was the 3rd house built in the Historic Ghent area of Norfolk. As seen from the photographs, the main house is an imposing old brick structure, extremely well built with an imposing two story circular sitting room and library. The addition was a more sleek combination of scandinavian and colonial design. The kitchen cabinets were created from quarter sawn old heart pine beams from the owner’s mother’s Suffolk home. Countertops of antique black granite accompanied handmade tiles from a local craftswoman.
