JJ Lake House

The JJ Lake House originally dates to the early 18th century. It was expanded and modified during the Federal, Greek Revival, and Victorian periods.

The building sat derelict for more than 20 years and required a thorough exterior and interior restoration and structural stabilization. Its generous rooms allowed it to be adapted into a shared office building, required by new zoning.

White pine was locally salvaged to replace several rotten floors, and the old frieze boards were repurposed as paneling in a new, copper, and cherry bathroom.  Fortunately, many original details, such as a sweeping railing and most of the original doors and windows remained.
