Located at the top of a cul-de-sac in one of the finest sites in the Pleasant Brook or adjacent Peacock Farm neighborhoods, this expanded and updated Peacock-Farm-style house was originally designed by pioneering architect-developer Walter Pierce. Filled with natural light from walls of windows and skylights, the open floor plan is cheerful and welcoming. The living room side has a dramatic step-down addition that perfectly frames the outdoor-indoor relationship of the home. The living room features a fireplace, beamed cathedral ceilings, and clerestory windows. The renovated kitchen with upgraded appliances has also been expanded and includes a dining area. Sliders lead to a deck and a brick patio. Warm hardwood floors throughout. A mudroom with lots of storage leads to a two-car carport. The finished lower level has an office/family room, two more bedrooms, and a full bath. There’s an additional heated finished basement instead of the usual crawl space. An updated and expanded midcentury-modern classic! The Pleasant Brook neighborhood has its own dedicated neighborhood pool and is close to Wilson Farm, public transportation, and minutes to Cambridge via nearby Route 2.
