According to The Spaces, this 1940-built Marcel Breuer and Walter Gropius treasure has come back on the market just six months after selling. Known as the Chamberlain Cottage, the 3,742-square-foot three bedroom sits on close to eight acres of land by the Sudbury River in Wayland, Massachusetts, offering modernist, Bauhaus living among a serene, natural landscape.

Still, it would be misleading to call it an original, as architects Sidney R. Bowen and Angela E. Watson first came upon the home in 1995, when it was in very bad shape, and decided to restore and extend the 600-square-foot property to its current state following the principles of the great architects. Among the additions are a new wing, updated kitchen, indoor koi pond, copper wall paneling, and other amenities.

Located at 68 Moore Road, it was first listed at $2,300,000 and is now available for $1,995,000 after a price cut. Even though the home is no longer a pure Bauhaus creation, it’s nonetheless impressive (the photos could be better, however).
