DESCRIPTION

“This unique 2-story dwelling was designed by Brian MacKay-Lyons and engineered by Reneé MacKay-Lyons. The Enough House with its traditional gabled roof talks to the adjacent 1880 octagonal Troop Barn and 1830 Cheboque School House. At the same time, its modern Corten steel exterior gives the Enough House a unique identity in the Shobac landscape. It offers prospect through an expansive 24-foot wide corner window overlooking the pastoral valley to the north and a 12-foot wide south-facing window presenting dramatic views of the cupola of the Troop Barn nearby and Hirtle’s Beach in the distance. Simultaneously, it provides refuge for guests by cleverly turning its back to the road at grade level.

The Enough House sleeps 5 with two queen beds in the upstairs bedroom and a single bed on the downstairs plinth. A small courtyard on the south face is great for basking in the morning rays and the larger courtyard on the north face is just the spot to enjoy the breathtaking sunsets or snuggle up beside the open fire pit. A full bathroom is situated upstairs and a well-equipped kitchen with European appliances (including a dishwasher) is located on the ground floor. Interior steel elements connect with the exterior cladding to create a seamless inside-out transition and the furnishings are an eclectic mix of new and old to reflect the modern and traditional dual personality of the Enough House.

The Enough House will be available to rent during the months of July, August, and September.

In addition to the Enough House, the Shobac Campus also features four Cottages, Point House and Schoolhouse as accommodation options.  The Studio and the historic octagonal Barn can be rented for events, and are ideal for arts workshops, weddings, equestrian vacations, family reunions, or corporate retreats. The entire site can also be rented offering the solitude of "a lost village at the end of the earth.’” MacKay-Lyons Sweetapple Architects
