Dorothy Shipley White House
The last and seemingly most conventionally modern of Chestnut Hill's cluster of important contemporary houses is this minimalist sculptural assemblage of white boxes built for an artist. The house turns blank walls toward the street and lights spaces with top window strips (a nod to the Margaret Esherick House; PH189) while large plate glass windows face the private garden.
