This striking Modernist home on Merriam Hill was designed by noted architect Bissell Alderman. The house was renovated over 2016-2018 with a comprehensive remodel, adding more living area to the first level, a renovation of the kitchen, bathrooms, the entry and more. Discerning aficionados of Modernism will find the open concept floor plan, walls of glass, and soaring voluminous ceilings they expect in the well-designed contemporary homes. While Lexington has a rich history of Modernism, it is rare to find such an exceptional property so close to the center of town and rarer still with a location in the prestigious Merriam Hill neighborhood. Add to that 260 ft of frontage and 1.23 park-like acres and it becomes clear that this is a unique gem of an offering. Imagine a lifestyle less dependent on a car, heading down the Minuteman Bikeway to dinner at one of the many restaurants in the center, followed by a show at Cary Hall, or grabbing a latte before picking up a book at the library.
