A rare opportunity arose to create a secluded family reserve on a 100-acre lot not far from Boston. The project began by reshaping the landscape to fit the family’s vision, including regraded pastures framed with new field stone walls and a newly excavated pond, fed by springs and natural drainage, now stocked with trout. Deer are often seen grazing on the fields.
The main home’s modern exterior is clad in field stone, timber and large expanses of glass, blending the building in with its surroundings. On the interior, the theme of field stone, timber and glass is reflected to bring the outside in. The home is served by its own water and sewerage systems. An old barn on site was renovated for storage.
