Historic Home Restoration Contractor in Newton, Massachusetts

Visually Stunning & High-Performance Restorations That Are Built to Last

The iconic architectural landscape in Newton, Massachusetts and throughout New England is characterized by original colonial houses. These charming, historic residences provide a deep-rooted sense of history and character for both their owners and the surrounding community.

However, the beauty and nostalgia that comes with owning a historic piece of property can also come with inadequate insulation, drafty spaces and outdated amenities that don't align with the expectations of modern homeowners.

At Auburndale Builders, we specialize in helping Newton residents maintain their connection to the past without sacrificing 21st century comfort, functionality and sustainability. Our team can preserve and recreate the unique features that define your historic property, while thoughtfully integrating contemporary features, safety enhancements and energy-efficient upgrades.

Local Historic Restoration Experts

When considering a renovation to your historic home, keep in mind that there isn’t a need to sacrifice your property’s personality for more modern comforts. Our experienced craftsmen are able to skillfully restore and replicate original elements of your historic home, such as doors, windows, trim and moldings with meticulous attention to detail -- while upgrading their performance to green, passive and even net-zero standards. We take great pride in our ability to soften the line between old and new, whether it’s to a main home or a historic outbuilding. Barns, carriage houses and other outbuildings can be transformed into functional spaces like work-from-home spaces, guest accommodations, garages or in-law apartments.
