Bucks County mid-century modern homes

The next 4 photos are of a Jules Gregory home in Bucks County.  Jules Gregory is featured on history page 7.  This home along with his personal residence near Lambertville,  I feel are 2 of the most beautiful mid-century homes of the area, due in part to the delicate feel of their curving roof lines

The following series of photos are of the Elizabeth H Ernst Residence in Bucks Co.  The home has undergone a complete renovation expanding the 1965 home by the Todd firm of Chestnut Hill into a much more livable space while maintaining the character and scale of the original home.

The initial concept of the redesign is by Fury Design of Philadelphia.  Link to the Fury design website


Before and after photos of the project

The original home was on 3 levels.  Along with the need for a master bedroom and attached garage another major goal with this project was to have the majority of the main living spaces all on one floor. The next 4 photos show the process of bringing up the two smaller bedrooms up 4 feet to be on the same level as the new gallery hall, master and garage.




The next 3 photos are taken at the same place in the main living space, original, during and after renovation
