Here’s a most impressive example of innovative midcentury-modern design from two of the Boston area’s pioneering masters. Originally designed by Walter Pierce, who lived on the same cul de sac and designed the whole Peacock Farm neighborhood, this home also features an addition designed by the area’s earliest modernist architect, Henry Hoover, for impeccable pedigree and stewardship. The plan features the openness and natural light that comes with post-and-beam construction and plentiful oversized windows. Soaring ceilings provide a sense of volume and drama, while the hardwood floors and two fireplaces offer a sense of warmth. There is a two-car garage attached by a breezeway that could easily be finished for more living area. Shake your cocktails at a wet bar is just off the living room while someone puts on some music. Sliders open to a newer patio lined with stone walls and a level backyard. Central air and natural gas are two features not often seen in Peacock Farm houses. In fact, this is not the typical design seen in Peacock Farm, a cohesive and historic community with a neighborhood pool and common land. Close proximity to Wilson Farms, the bike path, Lexington Center, Arlington, Belmont, and minutes to Cambridge, Alewife MBTA, and Route 2. Plenty of space to work at home and features that make for a particularly alluring stay-cation.
Showings begin around November 5. Open houses Saturday and Sunday, November 5-6, from 1:00-3:00 each day. Please use contact form below to request appointments or with questions. Offers will be reviewed 3:00 Monday, November 9.
