The Clock Barn

CARLISLE, MA

1997

2,500 sq ft.

3 BED 2.5 BATH

The 18th-century saltbox home is a collaboration with Dewing Schmid Kearns. Its proportions were right, and its historical authenticity deserved preservation. Still, the owners required additional space if the property was to function well for their family. The wise solution was to build a complementary building rather than compromise the old one. What grew out of this decision is a traditional carriage-style barn that blends new and old. Amenities and functionality are modern, but the building features an old tower clock and 200-year-old reclaimed barn timbers.
