Captain Sutton House

This extensive restoration project involved dismantling, moving, and reassembling this historic (c. 1687) First Period home in Ipswich, Massachusetts. We worked closely with the dedicated homeowners and a team of specialist craftsmen – first to assess the situation and devise a strategy for the work, and then on the design of the addition and indoor renovations. As with all our work on historic homes, we took special care to preserve the building’s authenticity while allowing for the integration of modern comforts and amenities. The finished product is a grand and gracious home that is a testament to the investment of everyone involved.

Excerpt from Wicked Local Ipswich - Before proceeding with the purchase, Johanne said she and her husband wanted to make sure the house was worth saving. Mathew Cummings, project architect for Cummings Architects, helped the Smith's determine what needed to be done in order to restore the house. Johanne said Cummings was really generous with his time and assisted the Smith's with all the fine details associated with the restoration.
