Set in a historic district in Brookline, Massachusetts, this midcentury home was once a pool house designed by architects Nathaniel Saltonstall and Oliver Morton. After a recent renovation by Cambridge, Massachusetts firm Hammer Architects, it's gleaming anew. The pool house—a post-and-beam gem purchased in a state of serious disrepair, was given a new living and dining rooms, a kitchen, two bedrooms, and bathrooms with sleek finishes, clocking in at about 1,700 square feet. Midcentury modern touches remain, like timber ceiling beams and wood ceiling paneling. Hammer Architects also revived the aging pool on the site and it looks like the perfect place for a summer dip.
