A singular expanded and updated mid-century modern house in the Grove neighborhood, a stone’s throw to both Estabrook Elementary and Diamond Middle schools, as well as the beloved Kinneen Park. Tucked away on a quiet street with easy access to major routes, this house started out as a Walter Pierce-designed Peacock Farm-style house. But with two expansions, plus an attached and heated two-car garage, an updated kitchen, a step-down family room with a gas fireplace, central air conditioning, plus a huge primary suite with a walk-in skylit closet and generously large luxurious private bath, the original modest starter home has been transformed and upgraded to todays standards. And yet the heart of Pierce’s original vision is retained. The post-and-beam construction, the open flow, the expansive walls of windows, and the soaring cathedral ceilings are all here, there’s just more of everything. There’s even a walk-out lower level bedroom suite with its own full (four-piece) bath. Indeed, there is potential for a separate private apartment on the lower level.
The grounds have also been upgraded, with breathtaking gardens, a big lawn, multiple decks and patios, and walls of blooming rhododendrons.
There is plenty of work-from-home space, but you’ll probably rather envision cocktails, entertaining, and relaxation. No longer do you have to consider the potential of the mid-century modern houses for sale; here is one that is already updated and expanded for you.
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.
