Property descriptionLocated minutes from the village of Norwich, Vermont and downtown Hanover, New Hampshire, this striking Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired contemporary is sited on a promontory that allows for expansive views across the Connecticut River Valley to the east as well as rolling, high meadows and stunning sunsets in the west.The 1989 construction speaks directly to the influence of one of America’s most notable architects. Driven by the belief in designing in harmony with humanity and the natural world, a philosophy Wright called organic architecture, the property achieves a seamless connection between the built and natural environments. The home’s designer sought to achieve a balance between the lightness and airiness of the glass and the solidity and permanence of the wood and stone and simple geometric shapes yield to expansive windows within the framework of the angular stucco exterior, capturing stunning local and long range vistas. All the hallmarks of a Prairie style home are here: authentic craftsmanship, genuine and natural woodwork, organic materials and elemental forms and motifs, an open concept first floor, a logical flow from inside to outside and massive walls of windows.
The interior of the home is divided into two main living areas over three levels and includes open floor plan living with dramatic vaulted ceilings, hardwood floors and an attention to finish detail and execution rarely found in homes in our area. A second floor master suite complete with private office, sitting and dressing areas, walk in closest, master bedroom and attached bath occupies the entire top floor while an attached and incorporated, but fully autonomous, two-bedroom guest suite with kitchen and bath facilities occupies the north wing of the first floor. A finished lower level includes additional living, bedroom and bathroom space as well as flexible areas perfect for media, exercise or in-home office uses. An attached two car garage and outdoor deck and garden space complete the main house.
The Studio can be found about 100 yards across the meadow or down the connected driveway and presents the next owner with an incredibly stylish and totally separate world from the main house. Artfully set into the gentle hillside and oriented to take advantage of the northern and eastern light, this multi-functional building was designed by local architects Smith and Vansant and compliments the architectural heritage of the main house perfectly. Organic materials and natural forms – from the flanking stone walls and suspended pie decking to the reclaimed Balinese woodwork interior doors, the Studio presents a space that must be experienced to be understood. Over thirty acres of mixed northern hardwoods and open, high meadows located just a stone’s throw from all that the center of the Upper Valley area has to offer make this and incredibly rare and special opportunity for the next stewards if this architectural legacy.
