Property Description

Designed by contemporary artist John Hersey, this modern Haiku House was designed to connect with and reflect its natural surroundings. Constructed with glass on the west facing wall, the house almost disappears in a reflection of its very private setting. A radical departure from the more traditional farmhouses that spot the Millbrook countryside, this house is particularly suited for the artist, naturalist and lover of Zen-like minimalism. The interior is deceptively spacious featuring large rooms with one soaring ceiling, exposed wooden beams, a sixteen foot skylight at the apex of the roof and clean lines that flow from one room to the next. Clearly designed by an artist, this home is perfect to showcase your collection or to utilize the 2000 square feet below grade as your own studio, complete with an etching press and dark room. In short, this home is a peaceful escape from the rush of modern life with room to breathe and reflect upon your own artistic sensibilities.
