On a ridge by a stream, a masterpiece by Fay Jones
I’d heard about the house over the years. But it’s only recently, because the original owners have sold it and are packing up to leave, that I’ve had the opportunity to make a couple of visits. I’ll call it River House for lack of another name. It stands on high ground west of Boston, overlooking a wide bend in a rural stream. I’d say it’s one of the 20 or so best houses, of any period, that I’ve seen in the Boston area.
