55 Beehive Road, Accord
For lovers of a minimalist aesthetic, surrounded by magical mossy, rock-outcropped woods on 10 acres, this simple, stylish and sophisticated haven is a second-home seeker's dream. Hand-built by Japanese craftsmen, it features the calming effect of shoji screens that, when closed, do not shut out the world outside but simply temper it. But there is even more to ease the palpitated heart of a city-dweller seeking solace: tatami mats in bedrooms, the "earth" colors of both interior and exterior, the catheralled volume of space of the living area. Not a single nail was used in the home's initial construction and not a single metal hammer used to put all the pleasurable pieces together. The upstairs loft could become a third bedroom (the county records show it as a three-bedroom home) simply by creating a staircase and the space could easily be expanded. Current owners have added a high-end Italian gas range -- and a Bosch dishwasher to honor the quietude the home creates. It is little wonder that 55 Beehive has been an extremely successful AirBnB venture since its last purchase. Its AirBnB moniker was, appropriately enough, Japanese Farmhouse in the Woods.
