Davenport Do-over in Tenleytown, Washington, DC

A family of four near American University needed their house to function more practically for their everyday needs. So, we added a two-story renovation on a 1937 colonial which included gutting the main home, adding a bonus room basement, first floor kitchen and reconfiguring living and dining. We built a second story primary suite with a balcony, and carried out rear yard landscaping and hardscaping for entertaining.
