11 Cutting Hill Lane, Lyme, NH, New Hampshire 03768. In the Upper Connecticut River Valley, and beyond, award-winning architect Don Metz has designed many significant homes. This is one of the most important of all. The very first home ever designed, and built, by Metz is available for the first time in over 40 years. Fresh out of Yale Architecture School, Metz got his hands dirty in both the design and construction of the home, and lived there for several years. Added onto later by the next owners, Metz also did the design for the additions and outdoor structures that are still in place. Constructed on 10 acres and bisected by Trout Brook, this Contemporary was sited to take advantage of a peaceful setting in the town of Lyme, NH. Trout Brook is a year-round brook with a dramatic waterfall, and the owners have thoughtfully constructed a bridge over the brook to take advantage of the proximity to the water. A "Tea House" sits on the other side of the bridge, an elegant and peaceful place to view the falls. The main house has 3 bedrooms and 3 and a half baths, with unique angles and lots of light-hallmarks of Metz's early work. The enclosed porch provides an opportunity to bridge the indoors and outdoors in all seasons. In addition, a guest house provides flexibility for large groups, or as a rental property to bring in additional income. This is truly a chance to put your stamp on a unique piece of local history and carry this important home forward for generations to come.
