Sanford K. Gurney House and Garage


Bourne, Mass.

Year Built: 1917
Year Demolished: Unsure of Date

Brigham, Coveney & Bisbee designed a summer house and garage for Sanford Gurney in 1917. He was in the jewelry business and resided in Brockton. The house and garage were likely demolished sometime in the 1960s, as they do not currently appear on the plot and the houses presently there date from that time.

No pictures are known to exist of these designs.

If the buildings existed today, they would be in the area of 539 Shore Road or 468 County Road. The plot of land runs between these two streets.
