This one-of-a-kind 1888 Shingle Style Home is the first residence designated a Local Historic Landmark in Montclair, having long been on state and national registers.To see a larger image and more detail, click here.

The existing house has been completely rebuilt and/or restored inside and out, while preserving its distinctive details.

The new one-story addition contains a grand family room, with an exterior design employing the home’s wavy shingle patterns, varied sash configurations, exposed rafter tails and hipped dormers.

Environmentally sustainable features include high performance glazing set in wood frames, engineered lumber, well-insulated 2x6 stud walls, the minimization of impervious surfaces on-site, and the preservation of a magnificent old tree.

This home originally had 22 rooms, living and sleeping porches, and balconies, covering 3 ½ stories plus a cellar. The turret contains a third-floor room featuring curved sash windows and an extremely high, truncated, conical ceiling.
