When the owners of a sprawling home in Baltimore County decided to downsize, they chose to turn over the house to the children, and move into an existing guest apartment on the property. The apartment was outdated and relatively small, so the existing space was extensively renovated and the footprint was expanded with a modest addition, including the creation of new a screen porch. A gourmet kitchen opens to great room and casual dining area, and a coffered ceiling was added to give the space old world character. To allow for graceful aging in place, the entire renovation was designed with accessibility in mind.
