The homeowners purchased 40 acres of land in Shrewsbury, MA. Their dream was to build a new home and develop a small hobby winery on the land. They wanted their new home to be of traditional New England style architecture and it had to look historic but be of new construction. They also wanted a classic New England "red" barn to use in support of the winery. They contacted Gilmore Building Co, Inc. of Grafton MA to do the design and construction because of the Company's reputation as a leading designer and builder of classic New England style architecture homes in Central MA.
Their choice of design for the home was an early New England Salt Box. They also chose the new old home design concept because the construction is new but the home looks like it was built 200 years ago. The result was the 4-bedroom home shown at the right. It has an open floor plan, the latest living conveniences, energy efficient systems, and low maintenance technologies. In addition, the traditional red barn was built (see photo below).
The grape vines are producing and very good wine is being is available.
