Hampton Falls Home, c. 1806

This 1806 home is said to originally have been a gift to ship captain Nathaniel Perkins for his service during the Revolutionary War. Over a decade, Tim Hagan and his crew transformed the two century-old house and adjacent six-stall barn.

The house was gutted to the bones, needed repairs done and insulation added, then the walls were replaced with the original style of plaster. Downstairs, the kitchen was updated, making it chef-worthy, but still in keeping with the home's Early American heritage, as shown in the photos above. The original two-foot-wide paneling in the living room was retained and oiled to bring out its beauty. The work was labor-intensive; all the floors were redone by hand, beamwork was exposed, custom handrails made for the staircase. Upstairs, the smallest bedroom was redone as a walk-in closet, while the three bedrooms and master bath were completely redone.

A tack room with custom storage boxes was installed in the barn, an indoor riding arena and back-to-back-run-in shed with storage were added to the five-acre property.
