Well head of its time! Built 30 years ago this country house was crafted with unique purpose by renowned architect Duo Dickinson FAIA. The design premise of the post and beam home is the blend of of old world construction and materials with intentional modern sensibilities: a refreshing reminder of simple, pragmatic and mindful living. Employing modern elements of expansive windows, open floor plan, soaring atrium-like ceilings with natural native stone, large timber frame and mortise and tenon construction, the home is both comfortable to reside and to admire. Two massive native cherry posts sentinels are practical in holding up the three story open room to the cupola but also are designed to add a bit of delineation of space in the open floor plan between the kitchen, dining area and living room. The stone fireplace with a raised hearth is a focal point of the space while a modern woodstove adds a cottage-type touch. There are 3 bedrooms on the upper level with a balcony view of the main level. The third floor features a small office. In 2009 an addition to the main house was developed as an in-law apartment. Sitting above the two car garage this space is in keeping with the main house and boasts The pegged truss system is a beautiful piece of art and yet it all makes sense. There is a large bedroom/bath suite, complete kitchen and a useable loft. Stone walls outline the 2.5 acre property and it snugs up against the Cobble Brook Preserve with miles of hiking trails.
