Admiral's House

This stately Georgian home located outside of Boston, Massachusetts, was originally built in 1917 for John W. Weeks, a Boston financier who went on to become a U.S. Senator and U.S. Secretary of War.  The home’s original architectural details include an elaborate 15-inch deep dentil soffit at the eaves, decorative leaded glass windows, custom marble windowsills, and a beautiful Monson slate roof.  Although the owners loved the character of the original home, its formal layout did not suite the family’s lifestyle. The owners charged Meyer & Meyer with complete renovation of the home’s interior, including the design of two sympathetic additions.  The first includes an office on the first floor with master bath above.  The second and larger addition houses a family room, playroom, mudroom, and a three-car garage.
