Historic Stable Restoration Greenvale Vineyards

Restoration of an existing 1863 historic stable for winery tasting, wine storage and offices. The 5,000 SF stable was originally designed by John Hubbard Sturgis, a noted Boston architect, and is now visited by over 20,000 tourists per year.

The 20 month long restoration entailed rebuilding all four walls and lifting the northern elevation 13” and the southern elevation 18”. Windows were both repaired and rebuilt in kind, and the barn doors and hardware were reused. Floors were replaced, and a beautiful new truss system was designed to provide the stability for the new roof. Three original standing stalls were transformed into offices for the winemaker, vineyard manager and tasting room manager, while two box stalls were repurposed as a kitchen and rest room. Numerous historic farming implements, notes, and bottles are on display.

Greenvale Farm has been in the same family since 1863, and is listed on the State and National Registers of Historic Places. Their goal is to maintain the cultural resource, a piece of American history in a productive and meaningful way.
