At the summit of Avon Hill and within a short distance of the Harvard Law School and the Porter Square Red Line T station, connecting in minutes to M.I.T., Massachusetts General Hospital, and downtown Boston’s legal, financial and retail districts, this stunning Contemporary house is situated on an unusually secluded site. Tucked away from view and raised above the street grade, the residence was designed in 1957 by the esteemed Paul Rudolph, later Dean of the Yale School of Architecture.
Massive floor-to-ceiling windows face thoughtfully landscaped private gardens on one side, and a large light-filled conservatory on the other. Sheer unencumbered space distinguishes the vast room at the center of the house, which is accentuated by exposed steel trusses. This grand area generously accommodates living, dining, music, and play areas. Three bedrooms and two studies. Terrazzo floors. Central air conditioning. Off-street parking. The rarest offering of the spring market.
