On a five-acre wooded lot, previously owned by John Quincy Adams, sits a house with modern design elements and smart technology that he’d likely be curious to see. Designed by Jake Lilley Architects and built by Kistler & Knapp in 2013, the home has cedar siding and three stories of floor-to-ceiling windows for ongoing views of the natural surroundings. The crisp white interiors feature a clean-lined kitchen with quartz countertops, a Miele wine refrigerator, and a built-in coffee system. Floors are a mix of wood and stone throughout. In the living area, a dividing wall with a gas fireplace makes a statement. Between floors, an open glass staircase is another distinguishing feature.
