Preserving And Upgrading A Historic Fort Mitchell Kitchen And Great

This historic 1800s farmhouse, believed to be built during the Civil War, has unmatched character and heritage but wasn’t perfectly suited for life in our modern world. The new kitchen and great room were connected to an addition that was built in 1949. When it comes to remodeling a home from centuries past, there’s a delicate balance between installing those services and conveniences we take for granted and preserving the very things that make these homes so special. Luckily, Legacy Builders Group was up for the challenge.

TWhite, shaker-style cabinets reach the ceiling for maximum storage and pair perfectly with the white quartz countertops. Stunning rough-sawn exposed beams echo and honor the look and feel of the existing farmhouse. The fireplace was converted to a two-sided unit while maintaining the beauty and charm of the existing natural stone. This space is now much more open and functional and a perfect place for entertaining.
