Two rear additions make more room for the Hastings, their four boys, and yellow lab, Sawyer.
The original façade remains unchanged out of respect for the home’s history.
sun catcher: With its glass ceiling, brick walls, and concrete tile floors, the sun porch is architect Bobby McAlpine’s update on the sunken dens found in many mid-century homes.
One of the goals of the renovation was adding plenty of windows to unify the outdoor and indoor spaces.
MODERN HISTORY: What was once Sarah-Hamlin’s grandparents’ formal parlor has been transformed into a handsome office/library for her husband, Matt.
reinvented: Hand-painted panels that Sarah-Hamlin’s grandmother had commissioned during a trip to China find a new home in the first-floor powder room, where they look fresh against walls painted “Amazon Green” by Benjamin Moore.
a Keen eye: Among the couple’s collection of artwork and antiques are the circa-1974 Ribbon Sculpture by Dan Murphy and Regency walnut center hall table purchased from Michael Bruno before he founded 1stdibs. The door to the bar is hidden by the full-length gilt-wood mirror, custom made by Bob Hines of R Squared Glass Artisans.
neutral territory: The graceful, first-floor master bedroom is both elegant and modern with ivory drapery and an array of artwork.
COMFORT ZONE: On fall evenings, the whole gang gathers around the outdoor fireplace to catch up on the day’s events (above).
Above the bed, a sculptural chandelier hangs near a colorful abstract piece by local artist Tim Hussey.
CABANA COOL: Elevated pool cabanas provide shade and a place to relax (top). A landscaped brick wall acts as a privacy screen as the Hastings boys face off in the pool for a game of chicken.
