Designed by midcentury architect Walter Pierce, the Hill House is located in Brown’s Wood, an enclave of 23 modernist homes in Lincoln, Massachusetts, a suburb of Boston. The design of each home was approved by a cooperative of neighbors, each of whom commissioned a different architect—creating an ensemble that included Pierce, as well as Arthur H. Brooks, Stanley Myers, and Dan Compton, among others.
Pierce’s idea was to create a “cube in the woods,” although the current structure includes a bedroom wing that branches off of one side. The current owners, who have lived in the home since 1996, also worked with another team of architects to relocate the kitchen and living room. Even with these changes, the home retains a decidedly modernist feel that is true to the Brown’s Wood neighborhood intention.
Today, the home spans 3,190 square feet, with three bedrooms and two full bathrooms. A remodeled kitchen features updated appliances and cabinetry, as do the bathrooms. In addition to the main floor living area, a basement in the new addition provides an additional family room. Keep scrolling to see more of the home, which currently listed for $1,400,000.
