TPS3 Deleted Session February 19, 1975 13/73 (18%) foster house hill privacy formality

[... 6 paragraphs ...]

Because that house is on a hill it has certain advantages. Looking down at the town gives the kind of perspective that each of you enjoy—as here you look down from the second story.You get a second-story effect, then.

[... 3 paragraphs ...]

The formality of the position of the house upon its hill provides a kind of structure of its own. The same house on low land would not suffice, you see. It is the entire picture that is important. There are good paintings to be found from the house, in terms of landscapes, and natural walks. You would end up, I imagine, tearing down a wall.

[... 6 paragraphs ...]

Give us a moment.... The people who have lived in the Foster Street house, and the hill house, have to some extent already conditioned the rest of the neighbors in a certain way. There are alliances and understandings in neighborhoods—signs for others to read. The little house on Cobbles East also has its own aura of privacy that no garage on the other side can disturb.

[... 1 paragraph ...]

The Foster house had shrubs. The front entrance was not even used. The hill house is set up high. Anyone who walks up the steps from the street knows they are making a trip. Financially you have absolutely nothing to worry about. You can afford the cash.

[... 10 paragraphs ...]

Give us a moment.... The hill house, again, has good aspects because of the location, the view and the proximity of nature. The dining area is better, as it is now. It would require little work.

[... 1 paragraph ...]

The Cobbles East house would not content you, though it is a quite adequate house, and elegant in its way inside. You would feel cramped, however. The hill house, because of its location, adds a spaciousness that is inside the Foster house, but either way you have an open feeling in terms of expansion.

[... 4 paragraphs ...]

The Foster house represents many things, and though it is not on a hill it represents your feelings of secrecy and privacy. The windows do not open. It is dark, yet it is large, and in its way elegant. You can go along with the house as it is, and become more secretive. You can hide in it better than you can in the hill house.

The hill house is protected. It has some privacy. It does not have secrecy, and while you have a view you cannot hide in it. It is too contemporary.

[... 2 paragraphs ...]

The hill house does not. It represents a kind of challenge you have not thus far accepted. A kind of living in the present that has frightened you both. As given however it still possesses qualities that do go in with your natures. Foster Street represents an elegant secretive past, and you would both try to hide within it. Ruburt hates to give it up for that reason, but to a lesser degree so do you.

Give us time.... The hill house represents the future, and the contemporary qualities of it. I suggest, and only suggest, that that be your choice—because it is the most daring of the ventures for you—and because the hill will give you a view in many more ways than one. (And this when we haven’t been inside of hill house. Didn’t get inside until February 21, when we signed offer to purchase. See house file.)

[... 1 paragraph ...]

(“You’re talking about the hill house.”)

[... 8 paragraphs ...]

Now: the hill environment has open nature. The trees will tempt him to walk about, and he knows it well. The environment demands exploration. Nature there is sunny.

It will automatically tempt him to walk about. The two levels of the house are good. The stairs will be a part of living. There is privacy, but it is tempered by the open air of the hill, yet still the distance is maintained that is necessary for each of you. It is not claustrophobic privacy.
