On the Market: A Bauhaus Bungalow in Wayland
68 Moore Road, Wayland
Size: 3,742 square feet
There’s a piece of art history nestled at the edge of the Sudbury River—and it could be yours to live in. This Bauhaus bungalow in Wayland, called Chamberlain Cottage, was designed by famed Modernist Marcel Breuer along with the founder of the Bauhaus movement himself, Walter Gropius. It was one of the first structures Breuer completed in the United States, and was built only two years after Gropius’ own home in Lincoln (which is now a museum run by Historic New England).
Living in the house is to literally be living in art—the house is an iconic example of Bauhaus design. Many distinctive details circa 1940 remain, including cork and cement flooring, copper wall coverings, and an indoor koi pond. The home’s design creates a seamless transition between nature and modern living, and is situated on a private lot shrouded by trees. The three-bedroom also offers a detached garage and an artist’s studio.
