This is a 3 story addition to a Victorian era home in Palmyra, NJ. As with many homes this age it had been altered over its life and lost much of its charm. The addition contains a new kitchen at the rear with bedrooms above. The addition is sympathetic to the scale, proportion, and geometry of the existing house. While it is not a historic restoration the character of the house was restored. The best feature of the addition is the new back porch. Front porches are a much loved part of old homes, yet these same homes often have no place to enjoy your own garden. Directly off the kitchen the back porch is a place for family meals and watching the children play in the yard.
