Come home to an outstanding private Mid-Century-Modern country estate. Custom-designed in the International Style by Carleton Richmond, an early student of Bauhaus co-founder, Walter Gropius at the Harvard Graduate School of Design, the house was completed in 1949 as a residence for the current owners. Set far back off the road, sited on a rise on a 4.8-acres, the property borders an additional approximately 8 acres, which has is being conveyed into Dover Conservation Land Trust. The open floor plan is bathed in the warmth and natural light of its southern-facing exposure. Walls of glass offer stunning views of broad lawns, a pond, and mature trees, bridging the outdoors and in. A recent renovation has sensitively restored the house while installing a state-of-the-art kitchen and updated bathrooms. The efficient HVAC systems have been upgraded and solar panels combine with a net electrical meter for savings. A rare opportunity to make a special Modernist estate property your own.
