This 1875 townhouse, called the Isaac Newton Richardson house, has been renovated to blend modern amenities with historic touches. Architect Wayne Good kept the arch detail of the original windows and carried it through the living areas of the home, which have 11-foot ceilings and gas fireplaces. The custom-built kitchen has modern granite countertops and top-of-the-line appliances, but the historic feel is maintained in the style and detail of the cabinetry and the arched throughways to the surrounding rooms. The kitchen is adjacent to an octagonal conservatory, which overlooks our favorite part of the house: the backyard, with its koi pond, fountain, and brick patio.
