Letter from the House's Current Owner
name is Mark Ingaciola and I received your letter in the mail
along with the documents about the Hart House. I am the new
resident of the
home, which I purchased from Ed and Carole Jackson in June of
pleased to tell you that the house is definitely the the house
your family. While it now looks quite different from 1925, it
the same house.
and Carole Jackson owned the house for many years, Ed having
it back in the 1960's. The house was apparently in disrepair
when Ed had
purchased it, but he and Carole meticulously restored it over
bringing it back to it's original character. Ed and Carole are
"antique purists", so I believe the home could not
have fallen into better
consider myself very fortunate to now own the house. My brother
family live next door to the Hart House, so I have admired the
many years, never having thought that I would one day be able
there. As soon as I knew it was a possibility, I sold my home
on the south
shore area of Massachusetts and purchased the property. The
property has a
very nice yard and now sits on almost one acre of land. Ed Jackson
an old English-style barn to the property I believe back in
which sits to the left of what was originally used as the front
house (as seen in your photo).
you for sending me the documents. It's really a great experience
learn more about the house, see photos, etc. Your great-grandfather
obviously loved the house as well..and $10,000 back in 1917
was quite a bit
of money, although he was correct to predict that home values
increase! Perhaps you could bring more photos of your great-grandparents
when you visit Massachusetts?
would be more than happy to show you the house when you visit
Summer. Please let me know when you plan to be in the area.
will also try to send you some photos of the house.
