Homes on the Tour

The "Cube" House
This is a contemporary style home that was started in 1968 as a modest 24’ X 24’ X 24’ cube with a flat roof, designed by architect Don Metz. The original owners chose a beautiful home site and, after multiple additions over almost 50 years, the Dow house grew to about 6 times that size. The current owners (since 2017) have customized the space for multi-generational living and have created an in-law apartment within the first floor that includes a second kitchen.
Lewis House
The Dr. Elisha Sears Lewis and Catherine Lewis House was built in 1908 by builder Mr. Doolittle of Princeton. The house was built in the “Arts and Crafts” style which lasted from the late 1880 until about 1920. The movement began in England and moved throughout Europe and North America and was known for it’s craftsmanship and simple form. Willam Morris (Morris Chair) was one of the more well-known designers of this movement. The owners have endeavored to restore the house to its original design.
Roper Hill House
This house at the top of “Old Roper Hill” has been in the Roper and Hatch families for many generations. The hill was used to harvest trees for the family run lumber mill, then eventually became a series of lively summer camps for The Ropers and The Hatch Family. The house was rebuilt in 1969 after the original burned to the ground. The current home is similar to the family’s former cedar home, with lattice and a koi pond.

"Stone" house
The “Stone” house was designed and built by the current owners in 2008 and sits in a park-like setting on the top of a small hill. It was partially constructed of New England fieldstone and features custom details throughout.

Rich in detail with custom woodwork throughout the entire house, it also has wide yellow pine floors and 4 warm and inviting fireplaces. The finished lower level has a family room with fireplace, full bath, bar area and media room. This 4,500 square foot home sits in a serene country setting, with a brick walkway through perennial gardens, all surrounded by conservation land with hiking trails and the Ware River nearby.
