Chagrin Falls, Ohio

Fresh Take on a Post-War Colonial

Reimagined, open-concept living for an active family tucks in additional space and charm while respecting the original profile of the home.

We subtly altered the post-war colonial exterior of this Chagrin Falls Village home with black windows and a new Modern Farmhouse motif. Metal-roofed dormers add presence to the front of the house, while the discreet additions hide over 2,000 square feet of new living space. Vaulted ceilings give an uplifting and vertical sensibility to the kitchen and surrounding space. Large picture windows and high transoms stream light throughout the new rooms, and blue custom cabinetry with clean detailing complements the crisp millwork profiles, successfully reflecting a modern classic style.

Builder: Jordan Construction

The Challenge

Our big challenge was how to add so much space without overwhelming the original scale of the home. We were able to rebalance the front elevation while raising the roofline, but we also found additional first floor, garage, and upstairs space with an addition toward the rear.
