Waterfront Tudor Addition – Elizabeth City, NC

Originally constructed c.1970 for current owner’s mother, existing story-and- a- half brick and half-timber cottage (built around and above a three car garage and brick driveway/entry court) on a waterfront lot was expanded in 1999 to provide more living and entertaining space for current owner and his family. Living Room and Master Bedroom spaces were stacked and oriented with traditional coastal North Carolina two story porches to access expansive views of Pasquotank River, as well as create a focal point for massing. Existing polygonal kitchen bay form, and brick and half-timber exterior design vocabulary were repeated through new addition, with a two story projecting wing designed to echo and effect symmetry with original cottage configuration. Stained wood interior trim, exposed ceiling beams, and segmental arched openings from original cottage were also extended into addition, creating a seamless blending of original and new finishes.
