76 Meriam St, Lexington, MA 02420, USA
Past Listings, Sold
A singular home with sumptuous detail designed by architect Robert Adams for his own family, 76 Meriam St lives up to its stated mission as “a private suburban oasis.” After 20 years under this single family’s ownership, this truly special property is ready for the next stewards to enjoy living in one of the premier addresses in Lexington. Set up a private driveway atop historic and centrally located Meriam Hill, the property offers a serene sense of privacy while being in close proximity to Lexington Center, schools, and conservation land. The long driveway approach is heated and provides a transition from town to country into the private sanctuary and visitors are welcomed under deep overhanging eaves.
Robert Adams graduated MIT with a degree in architecture. One of his first mentors was early New England modernist, Henry Hoover. In addition to his private practice, Mr. Adams has worked with several elite firms, including two stints with The Architects Collaborative (TAC).
