Sparkling updates make this original Walter Pierce-designed Peacock Farm classic a standout in the Pleasant Brook/Peacock Farm neighborhoods. Located on the White Pine Lane cul de sac, the house offers the best of both the pioneering midcentury design and modern amenities. In 2015 the current owners renovated the kitchen/main level opening up the floor plan; refinishing hardwood floors; adding new kitchen and dining room windows; recessed LED lighting; blowing in cellulose insulation into walls and ceiling; and adding top appliances like a Sub Zero refrigerator with double freezers; Miele dishwasher, range, and hood; microwave drawer; custom light fixture; and a wine fridge. The bedroom level has a master that shares a Jack-and-Jill bath with the two other bedrooms there. Additionally there are two above-grade rooms with closets on the first level that could be used as bedrooms, offices, dens, family room, etc. This house also has a basement below the first floor, allowing for extra storage and as a location for the utilities, freeing up living area on the main floors. The entry way has slate floors and built-in coat/bag hangers. Stylish, flexible, and part of a neighborhood with a swimming pool, a rich history, and a super location, minutes from Cambridge.
