Among the nine winners of the Westport Historic District Commission 2013 Preservation Awards to be presented in a Town Hall ceremony at 7 p.m. on Wednesday is the house at 38 Compo Road North. The HDC said the Barlow Cutler Wotton Architecture Preservation award will be presented to the owners Kevin Huelster and Katherine Kamen. It said, “Through their skills as professional architect and landscape designer, the owners searched for a historic property close to downtown that would serve as their residence and design studio. They purchased the long-vacant John Greene/Gideon Hurlbutt House c. 1710 across from Winslow Park. By obtaining a Special Permit 32-18 for Historic Residential Structures, they were allowed to convert the original historic house into a home based business use while building behind it, on the same lot, an architecturally compatible, new energy efficient residence. The authentic restoration of the house included the removal of inappropriate additions and the use of historically accurate building materials. The landscape surrounding the modest house and the approach to the new construction displays indigenous plants appropriate to the period enhanced by native stone walls and walkways.” (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Dave Matlow for WestportNow.com
