From the street, this yellow house in Cambridgeport looks like your average Colonial. Take a walk around the back, though, and you’ll see it’s anything but. Originally built in 1873, the house received a major update in 1998—Somerville-based Paul Lukez Architecture overhauled it into a contemporary masterpiece, revamping the back of the home with an ultra-mod addition.

Old meets new in the bright, open-concept rooms, and walls of windows let in abundant natural light. In the kitchen, a set of French doors leads out to the patio and gardens, where there’s specimen plantings and plenty of room for lounging. There’s also a driveway with tandem parking for two cars and a lower-level au pair suite.
