Faught House // c. 1885

Located on Hull Hill, a residential development near the old Fort Revere and Hull Village, this unique Swiss Chalet style home stands out for its architecture, and color! The home was built in the 1880s, likely for a G. N. Faught. This section of town was originally held by a few small farms, but that shifted to become a development of spacious summer homes after the introduction of water service to this area. The neighborhood’s development was also spurred by the construction of the Hull Yacht Club in 1882, which was at the time, was apparently the second largest of such clubs in the country. This interesting home features intricate turned posts, balustrade with delicate cut-outs, and deep overhanging eaves with exposed rafters adding to its ‘chalet’ charm.
