F.H. Perry Builder is proud to team up with Design Associates for this great Cambridge preservation project.

Exterior preservation of the historic Guyot-Horsford House (built 1854) and Stable (built 1882) is underway. Noted architect Henry Greenough designed the Italianate style house for professor Arnold Guyot of Harvard and for many years it was the home of noted chemist Ebon Horsford. The house and stable appear very much as they did when first constructed, with only minor alterations occuring early in the 20th century. Today’s work includes re-roofing, restoration of wood trim and siding, repairs to windows and shutters, painting and selected repointing of brick foundations, walls and chimneys. When complete a neighborhood landmark will be preserved for many years to come.

Completion is anticipated December 2016.
