When it comes to modern homes in Massachusetts, Lincoln is the capital. Not only is it where Bauhaus founder Walter Gropius built his 1938 abode, but it’s where many architects seemingly influenced by his designs constructed sleek residences.
This enormous Deck House for sale at 108 Tower Road is one of them. The home was built in 1967, and stretches to just over 2,900 square feet. With all that interior space, the house makes room for five bedrooms, three full bathrooms, a huge living room, a renovated kitchen, an airy dining area, an office, a den, and an expansive finished lower level with room for a home gym. A brick fireplace in the main living room anchors the bright, breezy construction.
The home checks the most important box of mid-century design: blending the outdoors with the indoors. That’s thanks in part to sweeping floor-to-ceiling windows, skylights, and exposed wooden beams. Plus, screened sliding glass doors lead to an updated wraparound porch with composite decking. It overlooks the nearly 2.5-acre property. The manicured yard offers access to a hiking trail that winds through conservation land to Lincoln’s Beaver Pond.
The town’s commuter rail station is nearly just as close — it’s a four-minute drive to reach. Nearby Interstate 95 and the Minuteman Commuter Bikeway make access to Boston even easier.
For all its retro flair, the house boasts a slew of contemporary updates. There’s central air conditioning, solar panels, shining hardwoods, new appliances in the kitchen, custom closets in the bedrooms, and funky light fixtures throughout. The only thing it’s missing is some ’60s art to match its vintage appeal.
Jeannine Taylor and Jessica Packineau of Barrett Sotheby’s International Realty have listed the property for $1,190,000. They will host open houses from 1 to 3 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 17, and Sunday, Aug. 18.
