Gropius House

From the Meadow

The site for the house was chosen because of its position overlooking the orchard to the north and west and to open land to the south and east.  It was intended to be “a house on a hill,” according to Ati Gropius. As surrounding lots were sold by Helen Storrow’s estate and new neighbors were more interested in privacy than open vistas, the house took on a feeling of being a house in the woods, particularly from the back of the house.
