Butler’s Pantry with bricks from Old North Church Boston   Wellesley Kitchen Renovation
"Creative Uses for Small Spaces,"  "... A Wellesley kitchen renovated by Meyer & Meyer allowed for inclusion of a butler's pantry, creating a useful area between the kitchen and dining room. Bricks from Old North Church in Boston that were used in the home's previous kitchen were recycled and given a place of honor in the new pantry. Ample storage provides plenty of space for barware, holiday plates, and serving pieces, and the new sink and under counter refridgerator help facilitate effortless entertaining."

 Before & After Issue

   

The Starting Point
Originally built in the early 1900s, the home’s lakefront location offered exceptional possibilities, but the house needed to be expanded to suit the homeowners’ current lifestyle and serve as their weekend retreat.  Two neighboring parcels were acquired, and Meyer & Meyer, Inc. collaborated with Pressley Associates, Inc. to achieve a lakeside manor that feels like a Newport Estate. 

The Challenge
The design challenge was that the front of the house and the back of the house needed to be perceived equally, but differently. The front, street side of the house, is quiet and discreetly tucked into the neighborhood. The lakeside, back view is extraordinarily prominent, especially from across the lake. All interior floor levels offer spectacular water views. 

The Elements
Few houses demonstrate the skill of modern-day craftsmen with such charm and grace. The investment of quality materials such as limestone, carved timbers, copper, and slate, combined with stone foundations and triple-pane windows provide the new owners with worry-free maintenance and peace of mind for years to come. The property boasts formal English gardens complete with an underground tunnel leading to a wine grotto.

The Summary
The magnitude of this project was unique and the home was recently featured in Architectural Digest. Meyer & Meyer, Inc. enthusiastically brings its creative talents to projects of all sizes and scopes, from the simple to the grand.

Three Maples  

2011 Prism Award for Best Remodeling/Restoration 
Over $500,000.  

   

This stick-style Queen Anne home was originally built in 1894 for Gardiner Greene Hubbard, the first president of National Geographic Magazine.  His daughter, Mabel Gardiner Hubbard was married in the garden to Alexander Graham Bell.  At a later time in history, the house was owned by Woodrow Wilson's daughter.

To better accommodate a young active family the house was renovated. The project scope included demolition of a small kitchen and replacing it with a gable-ended addition, converting an upstairs office into a master bathroom/bedroom suite, renovation of all bathrooms, refinishing woodwork and adding millwork details throughout the house; enhancing closets; and excavating a couple of feet beneath the house to create a family room and guest suite with 10' high ceilings.

Balinese Suite

2011 Dream Home Award
Best Bathroom Remodel 

   

Inspiration for this serene master bathroom came from the homeowners’ love of Bali. Meyer & Meyer, known for their artistically innovative designs incorporated many unique artifacts from the owners’ travels. Sapele wood was used on the floors, walls, vanities, and ceilings. Countertops and the shower walls are black Vermont slate. The suite features a yoga studio surrounded by benches adorned with richly embroidered Balinese pillows. A fireplace of rough hewn granite featuring an inlaid carved limestone relic depicting an ancient ceremony adds warmth. An antique door, heavily carved with Indonesian designs is mounted to a cabinet door housing yoga mats. The scented natural fiber blinds filter light adding a spiritual atmosphere.
