Greek Revival Shipbuilder’s House

This stunning Greek Revival style house was built on a hill overlooking the shipyard of its first owner. Progress on the many wooden tall ships constructed there could be monitored from the portico with its massive Corinthian columns. Remarkably, in 2019 the house remains in the ownership of the family that built it more than 150 years ago.

Understanding the style of a house and will help you understand which features are character-defining so you can prioritize their preservation.
