At the base of Moose Mountain in Hanover, NH overlooking a private swimming pond on 34 ±acres, stands an extraordinary mid-century modern home. Designed by renowned architect Carol A. Wilson of Maine and H. Sloane Mayor of Hanover, and built by Estes & Gallup in 2000, this 4-bedroom 5-bath residence is comprised of three buildings. The main ground-level living area with lower-level walkout; a double entry garage with second level artist's studio and workshop, capable of being an apartment; and a spectacular tree-top screen porch. As the land slopes downward towards the large spring-fed pond, the home and porch maintain elevation, suspended high above the ground surrounded by treetops. An elevated walkway connects the residence to the pond as it passes through the forest flanked by ferns. Using steel tube frame for construction painted to match adjacent white birches, wall-sized storefront windows, concrete radiant-heated floors, exterior board-formed textured cement and black-stained cedar siding, the home is a collection of contrasts and seamless beauty between design and nature, residence and refuge.

As a featured project in her new book Northern Exposure, Works of Carol A. Wilson Architect, Carol expresses the intention and outcome of Foothouse by referencing the words of W.G. Clark. "…Architecture seeks not only the minimal ruin of the landscape but something more difficult: a replacement of what was lost with something that atones for the loss where it emerges no worse for human intervention and the specific use results in heightening of beauty and presence." As a one-of-a-kind offering, surrounded by nature only minutes away from Dartmouth College and downtown Hanover, we couldn't agree more!
