Types of Historic Homes We Remodel in Greater Boston
At Harvey Remodeling, we are experts at servicing homes of any style, including the abundance of historic homes we have around the Greater Boston area. Here a few styles of historic homes that we can flawlessly remodel:
Colonial style homes predictably trace their origins to the U.S. Colonial Era. However, these homes have remained popular because of their traditional, attractive looks. Colonial homes were designed to be symmetrical, spacious, and simple, making them an excellent base for additions and renovations. Whether you are looking to add a new room or garage or want to remodel your bathroom or kitchen to look more contemporary, Harvey Remodeling can help. We can also install a gorgeous new front door and stunning windows that will accentuate your colonial home’s classic style.
Despite their namesake, Cape Cod homes can be found across the United States. In fact, they are growing in popularity thanks to their simple yet distinctive appearance. Similar to the colonial style, Cape Cod homes are very symmetrical and have a centrally placed front door surrounded by eye-catching windows. These homes can be single or two-story and typically feature centrally located kitchens and gabled roofs. Cape Cod homes are good candidates for a variety of home improvement projects including garage additions and kitchen remodels.
Greek Revival homes became popular in the United States during the early 19th century, and it’s not hard to see why. Their striking columns, large patios, and simple rectangular designs combine to form a style that is instantly recognizable. And who could forget the iconic white and marble accents found throughout these homes? If you own a historical Greek Revival home, Harvey Remodeling is the only company you should trust to service it. We have extensive experience performing upgrades to Greek Revival homes while keeping their traditional motifs intact.
As you might have assumed, Victorian homes became popular during the reign Queen Victoria of the United Kingdom. Her reign lasted from 1837-1901, but the homes that bear her name have remained popular for two centuries. Victorian homes are typically quite large and are characterized by Gothic influences, turrets, intricate woodwork, steep roofs, and bold, moody colors. Many Victorian homes are quite old and may require renovations to meet modern living standards. Not to worry though, Harvey Remodeling will ensure every part of your historic home is safe and efficient while preserving the integrity of the original design.
If you have ever seen a Queen Anne home, you know how breathtaking they can be. The Queen Anne style is an offshoot of the Victorian style. Therefore, all Queen Anne homes are Victorian, but not all Victorian Homes are Queen Anne. The two styles use many of the same design elements, including turrets, elaborate trim, and steep sloped roofs. Queen Anne homes also typically feature an asymmetrical façade, large wrap-around porches, large windows, and multiple paint colors. These homes are often large and multi-storied, making them ideal for many types of home improvement projects. Harvey Remodeling can add a little modern flavor (and convenience) to these stunning, historical homes.
