Brookline Home of the Week: 192 Fairway Rd.
This contemporary home is listed in the National Historic Registry and was designed by a prominent local architectural scholar.
If contemporary and originality are top priorities in a home search, then this impressive property on Fairway Rd. should be the last stop on the prospective residential tour. This magnificent home, based on Bauhaus architecture, was designed in 1956 by one of the most prominent architects in the Boston area, Walter Bogner, Dean of the School of Architecture at Harvard University. The 2,532 square foot home was intended to encourage the beauty of its picturesque outdoor landscaping indoors with the help of floor-to-ceiling pictures windows, 14.5 foot ceilings, many built-ins and an open floor plan with sleek, fluid lines. It more than successfully achieved that goal.
Nine spectacular rooms are distributed throughout three levels of living space with the first floor boasting four distinct spaces that flow effortlessly in one another due to its fluid and unobstructed floor plan. These common areas include a fireplaced living room, beautiful dining area, family room and kitchen. The second level consists of a luxurious master suite with a full private bath and three additional bedrooms, one with its own private balcony. The finished basement caters to the residents' recreational and leisure interests with a playroom and game room and includes a laundry area.
In order for this unique home to accomplish its breathtaking indoor views, the grounds needed to be plentiful and pictorial. The 29,840 square foot (.69 acre) landscape more than flaunts a picturesque scene with its private, wooded background that not only achieves its scenic responsibility, it exceeds expectations for both indoor and outdoor enjoyment.
This impressive home just entered the Brookline real estate market six short days ago and offers will be entertained on Monday, Dec. 17. There is still time to explore this local landmark, which by the way, is listed in the National Historic Registry. The purchase and occupancy of this beautiful property truly is an opportunity to experience a slice of local history.
