First time home buyers Nikoleta & Ramiro Mincheva - Millian found their diamond in the rough when they came across an aged rancher just a stones throw away from Dudley Pond in Wayland, MA. Originally built in 1954, the existing 3 bed, 1.5 bath, 1 car garage, was in good structural standing; however, Nikoleta & Ramiro felt that the interior of the home needed some work and turned to JFF Design to bring their 1,800 sf vision into the 21st century.
The design was kept clean and simple. The first task was to remove any existing walls that would hinder an open floor plan and easy means of circulation throughout the home. This resulted in the flexibility to reshape existing living areas, bedrooms, and baths. The final program consisted of a master suite, bedroom and bath, den, a second means of entry to a mudroom and laundry corridor. The ease of circulation between kitchen, dining room, foyer and living room is seamless. Large expansive windows visually connect living to dining room while the exterior patio acts as an exterior room tying the two rectangular wings of the home together. Lastly a 300 sf. addition to the back of the kitchen and garage enlarge the new kitchen and provided adequate and comfortable space for a guest quarters. Cathedral ceilings along with large fenestrations were used in the master suite, living room, dining room, and kitchen to flood the space with light and create a sense of airiness.
