With the home in Jamestown, RI, the goal was to enhance and transform the property. The property is all about location and has a lot to offer, specifically being waterfront. The home has been completely transformed from an obscure, hidden property to an opening and inviting bay front property.

The historical renovation was an 1800’s home that needed to be revitalized into a home that kept its historical elements, but also could comfortably match the lifestyle of a modern day family of five.
