Breathing new life into a historic cottage

Posted on Mon, 6 Apr 2020 by midcenturyjo

“The Bruey Cottage is a renovated and restored Georgian Cape located on six acres in Norfolk, Connecticut. Built in 1790 by Captain John Bradley, a Revolutionary War Veteran, the home experienced various cosmetic updates over the years but suffered from extensive structural damage. The cottage was purchased in 2017, and over two years the envelope was fully re-built, the kitchen was gut-renovated, and the historical interior details were refurbished. Great care was taken to honor the original architecture and materials of the home. Today, the Bruey Cottage has four bedrooms, two bathrooms, three seating areas, dining room, office, and light-flooded kitchen that overlook venerable oak trees and farmstead stone walls.”

What a beautiful home- I love this!
(Except I tend to read more colorful books than they do) 🙂

I do like those well-trained, colour-coordinated giant dogs 🙂

Taper candles on the floor. I am hoping they are just for decoration.

Perfection. I want to drink scotch at that dining table with a roaring fire in the winter with my friends.
