Completed in 2004, a young dot-com entrepreneur built his dream house on Todd Pond in Lincoln, Massachusetts. The property, set on ten private acres, was developed in collaboration with the Lincoln Rural Land Foundation and resulted in preservation of 17+ surrounding acres and the linkage of a key piece of the Lincoln trail system.
Designed by Morehouse McDonald, the high tech home was built with “smart” technology including an advanced ground-loop geothermal system for cooling. The 15,000 square foot house with 28 zones of radiant heat is extremely energy efficient and according to the owners costs less to heat than a house half its size.
Outdoor living room with fireplace
and radiant heated floor
The house was built for both formal and casual entertaining. This outdoor living room with a fieldstone fireplace and radiant-heated floor extends the outdoor entertaining season until late fall or even early winter.
The reclaimed ten-pin commercial bowling lane is situated adjacent to the media room and entertainment area. It comes complete with computer scoring and automatic ball return.
Lower level bowling lane is seamlessly incorporated into the entertainment area
Two-level theater features state-of-the-art 120" screen with 1080p projection system.
The home theatre is integrated with the bowling lane seating area so that guests can hop up from a game and hone their bowling skills during half-time intermission – or any break in the action.
Hand-crafted wine cellar
made from oak timbers
Custom built in Europe by the finest craftsmen, this mahogany library was imported and installed on site
Kitchen with custom cherry cabinets
and granite countertops
Making thoughtful use of excess materials on the property during the construction process, the owners had this 1000+ bottle wine cellar hand-crafted from oak timbers that were harvested on site.
The ultimate chef’s kitchen boasts views of the Todd Pond and includes an 11-foot island for food preparation as well as gathering. There is plenty of room for more than one chef at a time and the top-of-the-line appliances, including a custom Lacanche Stove, imported from France, make it a pleasure to cook here.

Both the family room off the kitchen and the formal living room offer the classic elements of high ceilings, triple-crown moldings and wood-burning fireplaces. In addition, the family room has French doors to the terrace overlooking Todd Pond.
This tennis court/basketball court is just one of many recreational features
The property boasts recreation opportunities for young and old alike. This hard surface tennis court also doubles as a basketball court. The property links directly to trails allowing one to run, walk, cross country ski, hung or even ride a horse right from home. Todd Pond offers fishing for bass and other fish and ice skating in winter.
This saltwater maintenance-free pool is a family delight! Situated right off the kitchen, the pool is enclosed with mahogany window walls on four sides including two 26-foot-wide sliding doors that open to the outdoor patio. The family uses the pool year-round.
19-acre Todd Pond stocked with bass and other fish
This property has it all including ultimate seclusion and privacy with the ability to walk to Lincoln center for dinner or to catch the commuter rail to Boston’s North Station. The owners chose this location for its easy access to Cambridge, Boston and to private aviation at nearby Hanscom Field.
