A Historic Structure Report has been conducted for The North House. This provides an assessment of the value, conditions and costs associated with ownership of the North Residence, along with a set of recommendations that address the maintenance, rehabilitation and preservation of the property. A main conclusion made by the report is that the property is exceptional because of its historical character, status integrity, its current condition and its unique location. The Historic Structure Report is available by request. Since 2013, the exterior of the North House has been restored to preserve the structure. A detailed list of items that have been addressed is available by request.
To make alterations a Certificate of Appropriateness is required which certifies that the work will be compatible with the historic character of a building. The owner is required to "keep in good repair all the exterior portions such improvement and all interior portions thereof which, if not maintained, may cause the exterior portions of such improvement to fall into a state of disrepair."
The interior of the North House has remained original. Renderings that show how the interior could be restored are below and for other ideas on how to restore a historic home click here.
