A Great Room for a Great Family
From the front this Sudbury home was beautiful but, if you ask the homeowners they would tell you, the back of the house left a lot to be desired. The sunken Family Room was dark and had ugly, outdated stone veneer fireplace flanked by high-set, undersized windows. The three-season Sunroom, which was accessible via sliding doors, was bright enough but with no insulation and inefficient windows, it was always too hot in the Summer and too cold in the Winter which made it only usable a few months of the year.
New House for an Old Property
When Howe Development Corporation’s president, David Howe originally saw the circa 1947 five bedroom/two bathroom home, he immediately saw the potential and decided to take on the project. It had an attractive, level 1/2-acre lot which was surrounded by mature trees and located in a desirable area of Sudbury. However, the house itself was situated poorly on the lot, much too close to the road. The floor plan lacked versatility and could never be functional enough to suit the needs of today’s family.
