Bertram Linder House

-A A +A
1965, Edward Durell Stone. Opposite end of Lily Lake Rd. on N. Abington Rd., 0.7 miles north of Waverly

This secluded residence, visible from the road only in winter, is midcentury modernism at its best. The house is a surprise: instead of the lacework expected from Stone during the 1960s, it is a delicate glass box projecting from a hillside above a rubble stone courtyard wall, a return to the ideas expressed in the architect's earliest work.
