A Renovation Story

Built in 1913, the Community Church in the heart of Mountain Lakes was in dire need of a make-over. In 2005, they sought to undergo a full scale renovation. Following a full vetting process, The Goldsmith Company was chosen to restore this community jewel.

Prior to the work, the church did not have a facility to attract local functions and celebrations. But today, thanks to The Goldsmith Company, the Mountain Lakes Community Church website describes their facility as

 

Our beautiful air-conditioned sanctuary, our intimate chapel, our spacious fellowship hall …

Restoring a Piece of History

The Hapgood house on Morris Avenue in Mountain Lakes was built in 1918, and as of 2004, the home looked much the same as it did 86 years earlier. That was, until, The Goldsmith Company was contracted to do a full gut and renovation. “It was one of the most intense works we’ve ever tackled,” says Gary Goldsmith. “It was really important that we maintain the character and charm of the original Hapgood, but bring it into the 21st century in terms of amenities.”

Not only did The Goldsmith Company bring this historical charmer into the 21st century, they may have taken it to the next millennium.

A Home Transformed

feature3

When the Goldsmith Company was introduced to this Crestview home in Mountain Lakes it was an expanded ranch originally built approximately in the 1950's. Goldsmith transformed the look and feel of practically every room within this house, along with adding two floors. This renovation included the basement, the entire first floor, excluding the kitchen, the exterior decks and sun porch. The roof was completely removed in order to add on brand new second and third floors. Designed by Architect Richard W. Nelson.

Renovating This Hapgood

This Hapgood home located on Morris Ave in Mountain Lakes wanted their first floor to be revitalized.  Goldsmith accomplished this by restoring and renewing 5 of these rooms.  This renovation included the kitchen, mud room, family room, bathroom and laundry room.  In fact, the placement of the bathroom and laundry room were switched with one another.  Since the family room was an addition to the home, and the existing kitchen had been built over an old outside porch, all areas of the floor and ceiling were re-framed to a level and plumb condition. 

The interior around all the new windows is red oack trim, and the kitchen cabinets are by Canterbury Design.

Enjoy the Views

Built in 1912 by Builder #66, this original “Hapgood Laker” home remained in original condition throughout most of its life. In or around the 1980’s, a major, more contemporary addition was added to the Mountain Lake facing façade. This addition incorporated a newly constructed staircase “tower” and Kitchen / Family Room bump-out with a pressure treated deck facing the Lake. The house remained in this state until purchased in 2010.

The new Owners, hired The Goldsmith Company to remove all of the contemporary façade including the existing roof and third floor, all bathrooms, and even the basement floor. A complete interior renovation including a new Kitchen and Family room addition with Master suite was added again to the Lake facing side, but this time in keeping with the style and techniques originally intended for this grand Laker home.
