Facing West has partnered with Hob Knob Construction & Hutker Architects to give Captain Ellsworth Luce West House a new life.
Facing West partners with talented architects and builders in order to breathe new life into old homes on Martha’s Vineyard. Owners Christopher Celeste and Nancy Kramer (along with their six children) maintain a family home in Edgartown, and are also successful entrepreneurs in other creative endeavors.
In keeping with their values-driven approach to business, a substantial portion of proceeds from successful Facing West projects are directly reinvested in building schools and community centers in developing countries around the globe.
Led by builder and Martha’s Vineyard expert Maggie White, Hob Knob artfully marries the new with the old, preserving original structure and detail wherever possible, and combining it with period appropriate finishes and new architecture in a custom design suited to your Vineyard lifestyle.
At Hob Knob Construction we intimately understand the subtle nuances and exacting hand required to restore historic homes to their original grandeur. In doing so, we feel we are not only respecting and enhancing the home itself, but also the environment and experience of our friends and neighbors.
