On the Market: A Funky Glass Box on the North Shore
This custom-built contemporary home is one of a kind.
10 Old Wenham Way, Manchester
Size: 1,986 square feet
Care to move into an extremely cool glass-and-concrete creation on the North Shore? Built in 1986, this contemporary home in Manchester offers a unique opportunity to live in an industrial-feeling abode among acres and acres of woodland.
Inside, wide-open living spaces overlook the yard through expansive floor-to-ceiling windows. Those framed views of the trees, however, are juxtaposed with industrial accents like concrete walls, corrugated ceilings, and exposed trusses. The main living space is made up of a breezy, open-concept kitchen with a glass block partition, as well as living and dining areas that boast a wood stove and doors that open to balconies. A sunny atrium leads to a three-season porch, as well as the bedrooms, two full bathrooms, and laundry room.
Outside, a long driveway winds to the hilltop home, where almost 20 acres of woods, gardens, and grassy expanses surround the place. A rear deck connects to a freestanding three-story tower around back, which offers treetop views of the ocean and a charming study. The yard also makes room for a three-car garage and a small pond.
