Rare opportunity to own a 2002-re-built grand International Style modernist home, designed by Ben Olson, “to fit into the existing historic [and coveted] community of Five Fields developed in the 1950’s by The Architects Collaborative … who followed the land use and design philosophies of famed architect [and Bauhaus co-founder], Walter Gropius.” The design is stepped into the professional landscaping, creating outdoor spaces that are extensions of the interior rooms. The sophisticated open-concept design is perfect for entertaining. Formal living and dining areas flow into the well-appointed kitchen, and open to multiple decks and terraces. Large family room includes a home office alcove, a second fireplace, glass sliders, and a clerestory window. The profusion of light is carried throughout by skylights and a wood-slat wall leading upstairs to 3 bedrooms plus a Master suite. First-floor bedroom suite w/ bath, sitting room, and exterior access, perfect as au pair or in-law suite.
