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 kitchen/main level was renovated, 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 entryway 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.
