John & Nena Riches


We met Elaine Paterson at an architectural fair at the SEC and she has steered us through the whole process….We remain very happy with the basic layout and are also extremely happy with the mixture of old and new finishes used in the design and finish. It’s a very warm house (in every sense) to live in…It’s elegant, creative, respects the old building and enhances it with modern materials on the extension and porch. The new building with its extension and large windows downstairs and additional rooflights is light and spacious. We love it…….We are extremely grateful for the careful and thoughtful way in which Elaine has guided us through what was certainly a more complex process than we had anticipated and we are delighted with the result, which is fresh and creative and a wonderful retirement home.
