Charles R. Crane Estate
Woods Hole, Massachusetts  

Charles R. Crane
From 1910 through 1913, the firm provided architectural services for the estate known as "Juniper Point" owned by Charles R. Crane (1858-1939) at Woods Hole, Massachusetts.  Beginning with modest interior alterations of the existing main house, a Queen Anne dwelling which dated from the 1880s, the firm provided plans for structures ranging from small outbuildings and residential cottages to the large and fully equipped "bungalow" for Josephine Crane Bradley.  The Library, a jewel-like study hidden above the boathouse, contains superb interior features, such as board-and-batten cypress paneling, electroliers (probably manufactured by Robert Jarvie) and leaded glass panels.  Much of the less significant work, like the ice house or greenhouse, has decayed or been wholly lost.  Some recent restoration work discovered light fixtures discarded into the mud of a basement.
