Staying in Character
Julie and architect Keith Scott spearheaded the challenge of rebuilding, restoring, and expanding the old farmhouse. They reconstructed or restored each of its unique features, including the elegant staircase, the early mantelpieces, and the oldest section: a log cabin room. Salvaged materials, down to the handmade bricks, were reused for authenticity.
Julie and Keith designed a two-story addition that provides the bedrooms, baths, kitchen, and other living spaces the Klines needed. A new porch that wraps around the rear of the house creates exterior dining and seating areas. Anchored by a pavilion that resembles a simple farm outbuilding, the clean-cut pool presents beautiful reflections of the setting.
