What We Love
About ON THE ROCKS

  • The light, airy feeling throughout the house with easy access to gardens, courtyards and the outdoors
  • The soft luster of marble counter tops used throughout the house—hand selected from a local quarry
  • Taking an early morning shower outside
  • Fall dinners on the little terrace where we grill on the wood fired hearth
  • Taking a walk down to the pond with the dog for a swim, and memories of living in Stone's Throw cottage in our early twenties
“On The Rocks” is an iconic c1950 mid-century modern on 34+/- acres just outside Londonderry village with excellent views of Bromley Mountain and Styles Peak. Renowned New York architect Philip Ives envisioned creating a greater integration with nature using clean lines and simplicity. The design embodies the horizontal relationship with the landscape: open floor plan with high ceilings, lots of light and windows, exposed beams, all merging with the outdoors through-the-use of accessible terraces, courtyards and gardens. The residence was thoughtfully renovated in 2008 by architect Jeff Barnes, and now offers 4 en-suite bedrooms, 8 baths, and 4,500 square feet of living space with 3 fireplaces, reclaimed bead board, antique wide spruce and pine floors, plaster walls, and Danby marble. The landscape transitions from the house to a broad lawn sloping down to the pool, and a pond at the edge of a large meadow. The 1-bedroom guest cottage is just a stone’s throw away with its own driveway access. This is a very accessible location: 11 miles to Stratton, 6.6 miles to Bromley and the Weston Playhouse, and 17 miles to Manchester.
