The house is the American-born British poet T.S. Eliot’s childhood home, now registered as a national historic site.
The 1910 Federal Revival house was built by Elliot’s father Henry, who was president of a local brick company. The high-quality brickwork and flawless coursework are typical of the home’s craftsmanship, setting the bar high for re-designing the space.
The homeowners had a daunting set of goals. They wanted the current kitchen, butler’s pantry, walk-in pantry and servant’s area converted into a modern functional kitchen and gathering space. The new space had to incorporate historical elements from the home – and also create distinct storage and space for the family’s pet dog Beau.
To create the necessary space, walls were removed and exterior French doors added. State-of-the-art Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances were built into beautifully crafted cabinetry. Unique storage systems were designed, to ensure a clean, uncluttered and well-designed space. And the designers incorporated an arched opening, narrow slat quarter-sawn oak floors and a dizzying number of other special details that pay homage to the heritage of this special home.
