7 Angier Rd, Lexington, MA 02420, USA
Newly painted inside and out, with a new 2020 roof, refinished hardwood floors on main levels and fantastic new laminate on the walk-out lower level, this Walter Pierce-designed Peacock Farm style midcentury-modern house in the Grove is a blank canvas awaiting your upgrades. Classic features like stylish period light fixtures have been preserved. With an already open floor plan, the classic post-and-beam construction allows for even greater flexibility for such changes as opening up the kitchen, typical for the style. An abundance of natural light for huge windows, with the indoor-outdoor symbiosis that makes the pioneering and efficient design so attractive. Large level back yard also holds tons of potential. The Grove is a pleasantly tucked away neighborhood between Estabrook and Diamond schools, with Kineen Park and playground a stone’s throw. Under two miles to the town library and Lexington Center and minutes to major routes.

The Grove is a development of approximately forty contemporary style houses constructed between 1962 and 1965 in North Lexington, just south of the Rt. 95/128 corridor. It is the last of approximately six neighborhoods in Lexington which were developed with a split-level dwelling known as the “Peacock Farm” house. Like the original Peacock Farms development, The Grove was developed by Edward Green and Harmon White (Green and White). The original subdivision plan for Pine Ridge (as The Grove was first called) was submitted in 1959 but was not approved until 1961. Most of the houses were constructed between 1962 and 1964 by Benjamin Franklin Homes of Newton.
