Built in 1755 by Jacob Motte, and believed to be the oldest house in Mt. Pleasant, the Hibben House has endured both the normal aging of time and failed attempts at modernization. We repaired damage and restored the home to its former grandeur. Relocating the powder room allowed the expansion of the guest bathroom which now makes the adjoining bedroom an alternate master bedroom. We created the library by expanding the doorway, adding trim and custom building floor-to-ceiling bookcases. We brought modern living to the home with custom closets and a new kitchen and butler’s pantry suitable for daily use and grand events. Bathrooms were remodeled, and trim was added ensuring symmetry and continuity throughout.
