Concept, Design & Process
Marshall Sabatini brought in an architectural historian to identify the original part of the house, and which characteristics should be preserved in order to maintain its historical integrity.
We restored many of the home’s features including its main stairway, the original entryway, and a few original stained glass windows. We also implemented amenities that would appeal to a modern day homeowner. The master suite included a his-and-her master bath. Each bedroom had its own adjoining bathroom and a conveniently placed laundry room was added to the second floor. The renovation included a custom eat-in kitchen. Excavating out the basement, enabled the creation of a game room, a lounge, and a card room. An attached two-car garage was added to the home. The completed project received a 2012 Historic Preservation Award from the Historical Commission & Historical Architectural Review Board of Lower Merion Township.
