Escape to this California-style modernist house — one of the best examples of mid-century-modern architecture in all of Concord — located at the end of a cul-de-sac, on more than three lush acres of well-designed park-like grounds, with mature and thoughtful plantings. The kidney-shaped swimming pool will be your private oasis.
A long winding private drive lined with rhododendrons leads to a carport, and then to the covered entryway of the T-shaped house. You enter into a dramatic Zen-like atrium that links the outdoors with the in, and the bedroom wing with the main living area. An owner’s bedroom suite includes a spa-like renovated bath. A hallway includes two more full baths and two more generously sized bedrooms, each with separate lounge/desk areas and transom windows to let in even more light. Each of these bedrooms could be easily divided for additional rooms. A fourth bedroom or home office with its own entry is at the end of the bedroom wing.
The stylish main living area looks like it was taken from Dwell magazine and consists of a kitchen recently renovated by award-winning Merge Architects (see pictures of the renovation at this link), with welcome natural light and continued indoor-outdoor symbiosis. The dining room and living room each flank a two-sided fireplace. Walls of glass open up to the lush backyard, and French doors in the front of the house open to a deck that runs the length of the living area wing. More living space is on the finished walk-out lower level, a family room with a fireplace, a laundry room, and another half bath.
2020 boiler! 2019 roof! A separate outbuilding can be used as a studio, office, or playhouse. And there’s a large two-car carport with a Level 2 car charger.
A path through the woods starts at the end of the cul-de-sac and leads to Willard School.
The post-and-beam home was originally custom designed for the family of John Bemis, founder of Acorn Structures, and partners with Carl Koch in Techbuilt.
