THE 1898 BELL HOUSE
in New Hampshire recently became the 100th easement property for Historic New England. The seaside, Shingle Style residence was designed by Boston architects Wales and Holt. The easement protects exterior and interior features (even plaster, builtins, hardware, and lighting) as well as the carriage house and landscape features including stone walls and Colonial Revival garden beds. The easement safeguards the two-acre site from insensitive development in the future.
