On the Market: A Farm With a Bauhaus Sculptor’s Studio
129 Dedham Street, Dover
Size: 4,400 square feet
A massive estate for sale in Dover offers the chance for you to stretch out in 40 acres of your very own. Called Mill Farm, the property was established by artist and philanthropist Amelia Peabody. She wore many hats, including sculptor, horse rider, farm owner, and breeder, so it’s only fitting that her estate should house a sculptor’s studio, farmhouse, and a horse stable.
The sculptor’s studio is a Bauhaus creation from 1933, and includes a one-of-a-kind fireplace and several large windows. The main house was built in 1750, and overlooks the surrounding meadows and woodlands. The property’s garden showcases a few of Peabody’s sculptures, and beyond, there are eight box stalls, several garages, a tack room, and caretaker cottages.
