Sleeper took bits and chunks on New England homes, taverns, furniture, manufactured articles and wove them into a thematic masterpiece called Beauport, his home, which grew to a size of 26 rooms before he was finished. Situated on the water, from the terrace you can see Gloucester and looking to the left (West) from the terrace you can see the outline of Boston. Sleeper was the first recognized professional interior decorator, a major work was the DuPont home at Winterthur. It is an amazing place and most definitely worth a visit if you are anywhere near the area. A great day trip from Boston would be to travel to Gloucester to see Beauport which opens At 10 Am and the head over to Rockport for a lobster on Bearskin Neck. Beauport is not for littlest ones or for the severely. Handicapped.
