Perched on a peninsula enveloped by the tranquil waters of Nobska Pond, the distinctive Woods Hole residence known as Nobska House feels perfectly at one with its environs, featuring abundant use of handsome wood and oversized windows blurring the lines between indoors and out. It represents a rare opportunity to for a discerning new owner to rejuvenate and bring personal touches to a one-of-a-kind midcentury modern home.   Architect Nils Schweizer—who apprenticed with Frank Lloyd Wright as part of the prestigious Taliesin Fellowship program—designed this home in 1959-1960 for the original owners. Measuring a comfortable 3,620 square feet, the residence features many signature elements of the popular, enduring midcentury modern architectural style, pioneered by Wright: a minimalist natural palette, an easy open floor plan, a clean simplicity, gentle organic and geometric forms, and an integration with nature through the astute use of glass. Other highlights include an eye-catching tressed roofline, soaring “sky domes,” striking ceiling beams, and plentiful floor-to-ceiling windows that capture glorious light and refreshing views of the setting.   At the heart of the home, a gracefully spiraling unique stairwell links the two levels and their multiple living and dining areas; a spacious and inviting kitchen; four bedrooms with cathedral ceilings; and three baths. Throughout, the ambience is warm and welcoming, furthered by the use of natural materials and a feeling of being in harmony with its surroundings.   The site of the house was sensitively chosen—yet another characteristic of the finest midcentury designs—allowing for appreciation of the enveloping greenery and nearby Vineyard Sound from nearly every room. Decks and stone patios afford multiple spots for alfresco relaxation and enjoyment of the serene backdrop. A carport and driveway offer parking for up to six vehicles. A greenhouse and a post-and-beam barn add to the versatility and flexibility of the lush 4.42-acre estate, which benefits from the enviable peace and privacy of a very secluded waterfront location; yet bike paths, a marina, shops, and other conveniences are only moments away.
