HOUSE OVERVIEW

The Traditional and the Contemporary

The Indoors and the Outdoors

A Part / Apart

FOR SALE             This unique– sui generis –house is an 1867 One Room School House, first converted in 1962;  it was fully updated in 1998 with a 3000 square foot addition. It sits on two lots (3.7 acres)  and adjoins a 30 acre nature preserve.  

Designed by an artist as a gift to his wife, it has a sense of openness, generosity and a profound connection to the natural surroundings. 

The house has a calmness, a quiet, a sureness. It is a site specific sculpture to live in.

The renovations preserve the tradition of the original building.

  1. This house has an unparalleled beauty set in nature and offers superb visual pleasures throughout the year as the seasons change. The interior is crafted to attract the eye to textures and spaces that enhance one’s living experience. One not only gets a home in this purchase, but a valuable work of art.
