First tour: Historic New England’s Beauport, the Sleeper-McCann House, a National Historic Landmark, the summer home of one of America’s first professional interior designers, Henry Davis Sleeper. Perched on a rock ledge overlooking Gloucester Harbor, Beauport was Sleeper’s retreat, backdrop for entertaining, and professional showcase.
Second tour: The privately owned 1923 storied English Tudor originally decorated by Henry Davis Sleeper for English actor Leslie Buswell sits on 26 acres overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. New England warmth and charm radiates through the post-and-beam showpiece.
Lecture: Stillington Hall: Design experts Mitchell Owens and Michael Carter provide an in-depth look at the work of Henry Davis Sleeper, one of America’s first professional interior designers.
Afternoon tours and lecture followed by cocktails, nibbles, and conversation at Stillington Hall.
