Thankful for The Open Door and all the hard word they do for Ipswich and Cape Ann. It's been our pleasure to show up with our helping hands. Take a trip down memory lane over the past 5 years; we are excited about the next [...]
Downtown Ipswich, MA will be home to another movie filming in the fall!
George Clooney was on Central Street (feels like yesterday) filming for 'The Tender Bar' and now we have a remake of Stephen King's 'Salem's Lot' (hello 1970s!) rumored to be starring Jake Gyllenhaal. Both chose Ipswich for their on-location scenes; is this a new trend? I hope so!
Must be within 45 minute drive of Ipswich! Own a farmhouse on the North Shore of Boston that needs some major renovations? High Noon Entertainment wants you to get in touch.
The production company behind Fixer Upper is now casting New England farmhouse owners for a national show on a major cable network. The ideal candidate must live within a 45-minute drive of Ipswich and have an existing renovation budget of $150,000.
The team is looking for homes built before 1940, and in need of a large-scale renovation—ideally a renovation of four to five rooms. The family also must be willing to vacate the house for the duration of the build. And they’ll have to let the show’s design team take the reins!
Renovations will start this spring and summer, to be finished by early fall at the latest.
New construction is hard to find 'in-town' here in Ipswich, MA. We love our history and our historic homes and streetscapes, but sometimes folks are looking for NEW so we just went ahead and built it - on East Street! Call us for details [...]
"One million now face hunger in Massachusetts", according to recent news from WGBH. Harder to believe is the stastic that "the increased percentage of hungry Bay Staters is greater than any other in the nation." I had no idea it was so dire here in my home state.
We partner with The Open Door year round by hosting our downtown storefront as a reliable and consistent point of donation but with the pandemic, everything is different. We knew there was a need and fortunately, by way of The Open Door's commitment to their relationships with organizations like us, we were able to volunteer for their drive-through holiday meals pick up righ here in Ipswich. Members of team Windhill jumped at the chance to help! We served 130 households in 2 hours, working in the dark, greeting folks as they pulled up, drive-through style, sending them off with a trunk full of fresh vegetables, pantry items and gift cards for a turkey.
The staff at Windhill brought their good spirits, kind hearts and warm hats because it was freezing! It was too dark and too cold for a group photo but we at least got this shot! Happy Thanksgiving!
