It was dreamed up by principals of The Architects Collaborative.

Size: 2,901 square feet
Bedrooms: 4

This 1949 construction for sale in Lexington is part of one of the country’s first modernist developments. Dreamed up by John and Sally Harkness of The Architects Collaborative, the house has been recently renovated by architect Tim Techler. Techler worked with John and Sally’s son, Fred Harkness, to reimagine the space for contemporary living.

The revamped masterpiece’s updates include radiant heat flooring, energy efficient windows, and sleek new bathrooms. For all its newfangled amenities, the house still maintains hallmarks of midcentury modern design, like open, airy living spaces that bring the outside in via floor-to-ceiling windows. There’s plenty of room to spread out, too, with a huge family room, a foyer, a master suite, three bedrooms, three full bathrooms, a mudroom, and a lofted office. Outside, a two-car garage, a front courtyard, and a sizable backyard complete the very ’50s package.
