Stevens-Coolidge Place Masterplan

Project Location: North Andover, MA

Client: The Trustees

Architect: Maryann Thompson Architects

The 38-acre  Stevens Coolidge Place Masterplan is centered around this early 20th century estate with its historic home and gardens.  Newly expanded all-season gardens with horticultural interest are proposed on this summer home of Helen Stevens Coolidge and her husband, John Gardner Coolidge- a diplomat descended from Thomas Jefferson and a nephew of Isabella Stewart Gardner.   Working closely with the Trustees of Reservations land preservation collection in Massachusetts, our team developed a phased strategy for expansion that celebrates the unique botanic legacy of the Stevens-Coolidge Estate.  The Masterplan includes a new visitors center and additional programmed gardens as well as a restored meadow.
