Shaken or stirred? Just in time for the final season of Mad Men! This mid-century-modern gem was designed by the architect Don Davis for his own family. Set back off the road, the humble traditional facade belies the dramatic interior: a sunken living room with a cathedral ceiling and a towering stone fireplace; an artisanal sculpted, one-of-a-kind African mahogany staircase and balcony; sleek built-ins; and walls of glass flooding the house with natural light and views of the lush and private back yard. The current owners have updated the baths with a spa-like degree of luxury and the kitchen with the eye toward entertaining, and updated the systems. A two-car attached garage leads into the family room, which has sliders to a newer deck. There is a lower level media room and half bath. Very close to Vinson-Owen School and a short drive to Winchester Center, the commuter rail station; Lexington Center, Arlington Center, and Rt. 128. Less than 30 minutes to Logan airport. Live the Good Life!
