This renovation of an 1840’s farmhouse in Harvard Square was designed as a writing retreat for two poets who wanted simple spaces, abundant room for books, and beautiful, peaceful gardens. The exterior of the house was designed to reflect the historic character of the neighborhood. An addition was created to expand the size of the home and to enhance the connection to the garden. The interior was renovated to be more open, and to capture more natural light and broad views to the garden. Spaces were designed as galleries to display the owner’s extensive collection of Flemish painting and Art Deco glassware, and much of the furniture was custom-designed by Stern McCafferty.
