William Cook House c. 1809

Historic Renovation

For the William Cook House (c. 1809) in downtown Beverly, Massachusetts, Cummings Architects asked to create an addition to create spatial and aesthetic continuity between the main house, a front courtyard area, and the backyard pool. The carriage house design provides a functional and inviting extension to the home’s public façade and creates a unique private space for personal enjoyment and entertaining. The two-car garage features a game room on the second story while a striking exterior brick wall with built-in outdoor fireplace anchors the pool deck to the home, creating a wonderful outdoor haven in the home’s urban setting.
