Historic Haverhill

Historic Renovation, Addition, Interior Design

This historic Georgian home in Haverhill had seen a few bad bathroom and kitchen renovations over the years, which took away from the charm of the original structure. Mat Cummings and team designed a tasteful new kitchen with custom, hand planed cabinetry, soapstone sink, and maple island top, that was reminiscent of the age when the home was built. Matt Diana Housewright’s cabinetry and built-ins have many period appropriate details- such as rat tail hinges on the doors and flooring made from original ceiling boards. He also reused the existing Georgian doors from the property in new spaces. The new mudroom and pantry fulfill the homeowner’s considerable need for more storage space. There are new bathrooms and bedrooms on the second floor, but the team was careful to preserve and expose the structural posts and beams to keep the historic feel of the space. The end result is a project with updated conveniences in plumbing and kitchen space, that fits the fabric of the rest of the home.
