On the Market: A Midcentury Modern Home in Squantum
With a very '50s carport in the front.
80 Knollwood Road, Quincy
Size: 1,200 square feet
Situated in the seaside community of Squantum, this midcentury modern abode is quite the gem among its neighboring Capes and split-levels. And unlike the celebrated modern homes of Lincoln and Lexington, this one is only a short walk from the ocean.
Built in 1952, the Quincy home checks all the boxes of classic midcentury design. Floor-to-ceiling windows bathe the open-concept living spaces in light, creating a seamless connection from indoors to outdoors. A very ’50s carport means no shoveling snow off the car during winter, and in summer, there’s a mod screened-in porch for enjoying bay breezes. The property as a whole could use a bit of updating, however, which means an investment beyond the $479,900 price tag is in order.
