Allenhurst Historic Renovation 

jersey shore architect degnan design allenhurst

Located on Deal Lake in Allenhurst, NJ, DDB was hired by a wonderful local family to restore, expand and adapt this finely crafted period home (circa 1905). Initially built by an architect with Scandanavian heritage, this home has exceptional interior millwork, which was well preserved despite a century of multiple owners. DDB worked closely with the owners throughout an 18 month period to research, plan, design, and conceptualize the transformation and restoration which our team of craftsman constructed. While preserving and enhancing the historic nature of the home was key to this project, integrating modern conveniences and technologies was also important. DDB integrated an array of energy technology components including geothermal heating/cooling, high performance insulation and in floor heating that enhanced the comfort and operating cost of the home. The renovation and restoration of this beautifully crafted American Four Square was a challenging yet incredibly rewarding endeavor.
