Chestnut Project

Built in the late 1800’s this four–story Boston town house was completely gutted and re-constructed by Back Bay Design, keeping only the old doors and exterior structure intact. The end result was a modernized home with architectural elements true to the original style of the building. The new home consists of 3 new bedrooms, 3.5 luxurious bathrooms, and a gourmet kitchen and top floor master suite with an office, sitting room and walk-in closet. A private roof deck and patio was created providing breath taking city views.

Back Bay Design worked extensively with the client designing the space and ways to maximize function and usability. Custom doors, moldings and casings were made, staying true to the style of the late 19th century. BBDC also worked closely with the historical landmark committee to replicate historical windows and stair railings for the home. New plumbing, electrical and mechanical systems were completely replaced. Special care was taken to design the locations of the new systems to maximize space without taking away from the home’s original architectural details. The unfinished garden level was transformed into a luxury in-law suite providing additional living area for family and friends.
