Home tour- A historic renovation in Killingworth!

This beautiful 18th-century home has undergone some major renovation. Architectural designer Nancy Fishelson took the barn on the property and reconfigured it as a master bedroom, joining the structure to the rest of the house via a breezeway where her office is located. Her goal is to create an airy, clean retreat with an emphasis on historical integrity. Let's take a look at this lovely home.












With a neutral color palette, traditional furnishings and rustic elements throughout, her home certainly feels warm and livable. What are your thoughts? Are you drawn to this charming home as well?

  3. Nancy Fishelson did a great job of adding in enough natural wood to keep things from feeling too washed out. Lots of converted barns and older American vernacular structures of the era are decorated in the 'Everything white or whitewashed in that shabby chic way' that's hard to pull off in a way that's fresh and new. This does a great job of that. Still, part of me wants to see one pop of color somewhere, like a weathered dark red so that there's a little something extra.
