Antique Farmhouse Revival in Reading

The Garvin-Weeks Farmstead in beautiful North Reading, built c1790, has enjoyed a first floor makeover complete with a new kitchen, family room and master suite. Particular attention was given to preserve the historic details of the house while modernizing and opening up the space for today’s lifestyle. The open concept farmhouse style kitchen is striking with its antique beams and rafters, handmade and hand planed cabinets, distressed floors, custom handmade soapstone counter and farmer’s sink, kitchen island comprised of reclaimed wood and marble top all setting the stage for the elaborate custom painted tile work.

Skylights above bathe the space in natural light. Walking through the warm family room gives one the sense of history and days gone by, culminating in a quintessential looking, but fabulously updated new England master bedroom and bath. A spectacular addition that feels and looks like it has always been there!

Construction projects are never easy, especially when you are living in your house during the process and your home is 250 years old. With that in mind, it’s still amazing to me how smooth the process for this project was. The work included demolition of some existing additions to be replaced with new spaces as well as restoration of an early 1800s structure. The restored and new spaces included a living room, master bedroom suite and a gourmet kitchen. The work was completed in a timely fashion and with the highest quality craftsmanship. More important to me was good communication and customer service. I can recommend Windhill enthusiastically as a builder for your project.”
