Deephaven 1960s house reborn as a charming New England colonial

Architect Todd Hansen and his new clients were perfectly in sync on what type of home the clients wanted. Hansen’s wife, architect Christine Albertsson, is from Vermont, and the couple had spent many vacations there among the rural colonial-style homes. Meanwhile, the clients had visited Cape Cod and hoped to re-create the same spirit of the charming gabled homes they’d admired along the East Coast. But they discovered that their 1960s Colonial Revival in Deephaven would require a lot of fine tuning to get there. “It was a thinly executed, two-story builder Colonial Revival,” said Hansen, of Albertsson Hansen Architecture in Minneapolis. “It had gables and a roughly center-hall layout — with few interior details.”
