Preservation Award Winner: 111 Kings Highway North

WestportNow.com Image
The house at 111 Kings Highway North is among the seven winners of the Westport Historic District Commission 2014Preservation Awards to be presented in a Town Hall ceremony at 7 p.m. on Thursday. The HDC said the award to John Koren and Patti McGovern, owners of the circa 1911 house, is in recognition of the meticulous restoration of this previously abandoned house, which “was restored without departing from the original design and appearance of the house. New exterior items include a new roof, masonry foundation repairs, shoring up the front porch and removing mid-century alterations, and extensive new landscaping, once again a contributing element of the Kings Highway North Historic District.” (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Dave Matlow for WestportNow.com
