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.

  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.
