Marcel Breuer-designed Cape Elizabeth cottage asks for $1.149m

The Potter House in Maine’s Cape Elizabeth might look modest from the outside, but it bears the hallmarks of Marcel Breuer’s best residential designs, from floating forms to its bi-nuclear plan.

The modernist property was commissioned in 1949, and like Breuer’s other post-war homes, its simple wooden structure is designed to engage with its setting. It hugs a sloping plot, resting on a fieldstone foundation with its cantilever wooden volumes supported by stilts.

Vast glass panes capture views across the three-bedroom Maine property, which has been modernised by its current owners while keeping its midcentury modern features, including a large stone fireplace in the living room. The kitchen has been upgraded, and there’s a separate dining room off the sitting room.

The Potter House, aka 84 Stonybrook Road, is currently pending sale but is accepting back up offers. It’s listed with Coldwell Banker for $1.149m.
