Together with the home owners, Gardner/Fox architect Alex Rice created a plan to update the historic structure to serve 21st-century daily family needs and restore the property’s historic presence in the South Wayne historic district. The renovation occurred within the existing footprint with the exception of the new 3-car attached garage addition that was added to replace the existing carriage house.
