This Old House New Project

David: The program will feature the update and expansion of the 2,100-square-foot house, which is in good shape, but, like many older houses, suffers from an outdated floor plan and multiple rounds of renovations by past owners.

Shown: With nearly all its exterior details intact, the Arlington house is a good example of the Italianate style, featuring a hipped roof, corbeled cornices with a wide overhang, and a central tower-like element.

The backyard view of the house will change once the addition goes in over the first-floor bumpout. The yard itself will get some landscaping and the house will be repainted. The rear chimney stack, which passes through the kitchen and second story, will be removed.
