The house lifting remains on target and within budget, as we continue to preserve the history and integrity of the home at 45 Bacon Street. We hope that our Suburban Renewal concept sheds light for others on the beneﬁts of preservation and maintaining the history that makes our Winchester community so special.
Featured below is a heartfelt testimonial from the former 45 Bacon Street homeowners. Continue reading and you can see the amount of history, memories and love a home can hold for one family. The entire Dunleavy team is overjoyed that we were able to keep these special moments alive for this Winchester family.
“My mom and my sisters are enjoying watching your videos that are transforming our former home on Bacon Street into a beautiful new home for your family. My mom is 95 years old and she still remembers when the original house was built on the old Ginn Estates in 1954. The contractor was the Sylvester family that lived on Main Street. My mom still has the original blueprints. I remember my dad saying our house was built on solid rock that had to be blasted away for the foundation to be laid. We were one of the first families that moved into that 1950’s Ginn Estate development and as a boy I used to play in the old Music Hall that was behind our house up on the hill. In the 50′s, there were still formal affairs held at that Music Hall until it was finally knocked down. The Cades lived in the old Carriage house, which is still on Ginn Road, another relic of a bygone era. Our family loved Winchester and all have fond memories of living there. My sisters and I all graduated from Winchester High School and still live in Massachusetts. We wish you the very best in your endeavor and hope you enjoy living under the roof of your 45 Bacon Street home as much as we did. It will always be a very special place for us.”
