Homeowners Jeanne Sanviti-Masher and David Masher walk Bob through the finished Rowley Victorian. The open-plan dining, cooking, and entertaining area is practical and stylish, with a center island, Silestone counters, and an appliance wall complete with warming drawer and semi-custom Merillat cherry cabinets. The homeowners chose Pella French doors and custom Pella windows to transition from the interior to the western red cedar deck and gardens beyond. Phantom Screens allow ventilation in warm weather and roll into side panels when not in use. Smith & Noble fabric panels, Roman shades, and new hardware dress the windows, while FrontGate outdoor furnishings carry the luxury of indoors outside. Sunbrella fabrics, an all-weather teak table and chairs, synthetic wicker-look couches, and a synthetic rug make outdoor living chic and hardy. The grill station completes the outdoor room with cultured stone facing, granite tops, and a built-in Vermont Castings Signature gas grill.
Bob Vila undertakes the partial remodel of a historic Victorian home in Rowley, MA. The house is a classic New England gem with many partitioned rooms, plus the added appeal of a large yard with preserved wetlands beyond. From permits and approvals to the addition of a mudroom and deck, this project focuses on family space.
