The circa 1920s structure was built as a Tudor country house sitting on 22 acres of land in an elite community north of downtown Cincinnati. The house underwent many modifications, including a major addition and renovation in the mid-1990’s that transformed it into a true estate property patterned off grand English estates. It is also reminiscent of the Westbury Estate on Long Island.

The owners wanted to modify parts of the house to improve the quality of space including relocating the master bedroom. The solution was to build a new addition adjacent to the living spaces that solved their functional needs as well as provided beautiful views of the grounds and lake beyond. The new structure strove to blend with the old while creating a scale and character of its own. The existing bluestone dining balcony south of the conservatory was expanded and included a handcrafted stone fireplace and pizza oven. A new terrace wraps around the conservatory to connect the gardens and pool house area. Windows were added in numerous locations of the house to brighten interiors and provide vistas to the exterior. Decorative wood paneling, lighting, and other architectural elements were added to tie the entire estate together.
