Project Description

Clearly a house that has been lovingly maintained this c.1725 example of the Early Georgian period is an interestingly shaped dwelling. Called a “half house”, the builder laid out the windows and the door on the right side with the idea that at a later date he would add another two windows on the left side of the door on two levels to make what is commonly known as a “center entranced colonial”. In this case, and in many others in the Ipswich area, the house remained a “half” of a house since it never got it’s other half.
