Project Portfolio

This charming urban cottage on Waterbury Street in Saratoga Springs, NY, was in terrible disrepair when Old Saratoga Restorations acquired it.

When OSR started the project, the house had several poorly constructed additions.

OSR stripped away everything but the original cottage shell.

Additions extended the cottage core into a spacious, elegant, four-bedroom, 3.5 bath, 2,563-square-foot home with master suites on two levels.

Inside, oak hardwoods with a dark stain, crown molding and a custom newel post add luster and character to the renovation.

An open floor plan allows fresh air and sunshine to flow from the front to the back of house.

The modern kitchen features Shaker-style cabinets and a 10-foot granite island.

The master bath was designed with a voluminous walk-in shower and a separate compartment with its own privacy door for the toilet.

 

Urban Cottage Reconstruction

location: Waterbury Street, Saratoga Springs, NY

When Old Saratoga Restorations started renovations on this Saratoga Springs urban cottage in 2013, it had a great Skidmore College-area location. It was in terrible shape, however, and had poorly constructed additions hanging off of it like a flock of albatrosses.

OSR dismantled the house down to the original cottage shell and built around it to create a spacious, elegant, four-bedroom, 3.5 bath, 2,563-square-foot home with master suites on two levels.

The private first-floor bedroom suite is tucked behind the garage with French doors to the back patio. The front porch wraps around the home to the second entry door. Hardwood floors with a glossy, dark stain, crown molding and a custom newel post for the staircase add character. The modern kitchen features Shaker-style cabinetry and a 10-foot-long granite island.

The renovated home – complete with a new roof, plumbing, furnace and central air-conditioning – was quickly purchased by a family with young children.
