Designed in 1976 by AIA award-winning architect Lewis Davis, of the New York firm Davis Brody Bond, whose work ranged from modernist skyscrapers to the renovation of the Reading Room at the New York Public Library, High Birch's sleek white design is striking amid Vermont's green hills. Davis believed in the power of architecture to enrich life, and that ethos is evident in every aspect of this property. The drive winds through rolling meadows to elevated views: a serene sanctuary, only 2.5 miles from Woodstock village. The curving design captures the abundance of natural light flooding through the tall windows, illuminating the interior and framing the green of mountains and meadows. The multi-level design sets up intimate spaces for gathering and retreating: reading, reflection, or taking in nature. In winter, everyone can gather around the fireplace. In summer, the stone terrace is the venue for outdoor entertaining. Recent renovations by Studio Nexus brought the kitchen (a Deane design), living room, bathrooms, and offices into the 21st century, while honoring Lewis Davis' intent. The interior designer, Eric Roseff, added his sense of whimsy and delight. Raycroft Meyer Landscape Architects' designs for the outdoor spaces: perennials, a vegetable garden, and berries, complement the home's aesthetic. A pond near the house is a favorite spot for kids and dogs to swim. There is a two car attached garage, storage barn, and high speed internet. Fully furnished, move in ready.
