Located on one of the nicest lots in the beloved and pioneering Five Fields modernist neighborhood, this home — first built as the Grossman House — has been lovingly maintained and can now be yours. With walls of windows overlooking the backyard, the house is filled with natural light. The floor plan offers welcome flexibility. In addition to the four original bedrooms, there is a spacious second-story circa-2000 addition with cathedral ceilings, huge windows, and an en suite full bath (including a sauna) that is currently used as a yoga studio but would make a perfect luxurious primary suite to escape to. The kitchen opens to a living room with a fireplace, as well as a screened porch that in turn leads to a sunny ipe deck Enjoy an evening cocktail in the hot tub, another of the multiple enchanting outdoor spaces. A cheerful family room is on the other side of the kitchen. There’s also a first-floor office with a separate entrance and a capacious attached two-car garage. The indoor-outdoor relationship is what you’d hope to find in a home designed by the Walter Gropius-led firm The Architects Collaborative (TAC’s Richard Morehouse was the principal architect for the 2000 addition at 6 Barberry). Five Fields was TAC’s second development. There’s a coveted sense of community, with a neighborhood pool, playing fields, and events.
