The house that Beth and Michael Jones bought in Weston, Massachusetts was built in the 1880s as a carriage house and barn, a common beginning for what are now some of Weston's prettiest abodes. Through the years and various remodelings, the structure has retained its original peaked entry dormer, stone pilasters, and cupola.
Architect Patrick Ahearn designed a new rear wing for the house and oversaw a reconfiguring of the interior. Early in the construction process, Beth also hired Boston interior design talent Gary McBournie, whose work epitomizes casual sophistication -- exactly the look that Beth wanted for her home.
