Location: Stoneham, Maine
This impressive modern house designed by Mack Scogin and Merrill Elam (with landscaping by Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates) perches on a 2.86-acre sloping site in Stoneham in western Maine. Completed in 1997, the Nomentana Residence, as it’s called, measures 3,185 square feet and is made up of cantilevering concrete volumes, glass expanses, and a glazed impluvium.
Two bedrooms, three bathrooms, a living room, kitchen, dining area, office, sitting room, library, and numerous outdoor spaces are arranged over a dynamic, split-level floorplan that takes in generous views of Horseshoe Pond and the White Mountain National Forest surrounding the residence.
A separate artist’s studio is also found on the grounds, which feature a dog run, steel walkways, concrete stairs, stone terraces, and plantings meant to prevent soil erosion. Other amenities include multiple fireplaces, a sleeping porch, and two additional screened porches.
Located at 314 Horseshoe Pond Road, it’s offered at a cool $2 million.
