THE WILLIAM SUTTON BOATHOUSE, circa 1900 - The most unique property in the Andover's, which rests at the shoreline edge of 7.8 acres of exquisite rolling landscape w/@700 feet of shorefront. This home has been listed by the Mass. Historical Commission as historically significant. In the book A Good Inland Town, about buildings & landscape in North Andover, described: A whimsical design in the Colonial Revival Style, the boathouse straddles the shoreline on a picturesque rubble-stone foundation that plunges out into the lake. The scenic shoreline vistas from the dwelling comprise a permanently protected landscape: In 1985 a private conservation restriction w/the Essex County Green belt was placed on 1 & 2/3 acres of the meadow abutting the driveway entrance. The restriction serves to protect the water supply while providing a scenic view from the road. This area also serves to screen the dwelling from the road while permitting its use for equestrian & recreational activities.
