The Traditional and the Contemporary
The Indoors and the Outdoors
Bill Cochrane – Susan Hall
James Cochrane Real Estate http://www.cochraneinc.com
The 1867 one-room Lincoln School was first converted to a residence in 1962. A complete renovation with a 3000 square foot contemporary addition was built in 1998. The changes preserve and respect the tradition of the original building.
It sits on two lots (3.7 acres) adjoining a 30 acre nature preserve. A 2.2 acre building lot is included for potential expansion–swimming pool or guest cottage or future development. There is a glass-walled, heated, artist’s studio/workshop. Repainted and refurbished in 2017, it is ‘move-in-ready’. Could be good ‘weekender’ for city dwellers. Price is $687,000.
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.
