Designed by its first owner, architect Nathaniel Perry Tufts in 1930, the Tufts house is a well-preserved early example of the Colonial Revival architectural style in Wellesley. The Tufts House is also one of the early buildings in town from the architectural office of Royal Barry Wills. This firm played a significant role in the development of the residential character of Wellesley and spread in popularity nation-wide.
Occupied and maintained for all of its nearly 80 years by two generations of the Tufts family, the Tufts House today is an architectural gem in itself, and a building of considerable significance in the residential development of Wellesley. In 2010 The Massachusetts Historical Commission (MHC) unanimously approved the creation of two proposed Single Building Local Historic Districts: the “Methodist Meeting House Historic District,” and the “Tufts House Historic District.”
The Town and the Massachusetts Historical Commission urge that this building, with its connections to the development of the town, be preserved for the benefit of current and future residents of Wellesley.
This project is currently in the Design Phase, working its way through the various Town Boards.
KMA is deeply honored to work with the homeowners to expand, enhance, and preserve the historic legacy of this treasured home.
