Location: Lincoln, Massachusetts

Price: $849,000

Located right along a pond, this woodland 1954-built home was designed by noted 20th-century architect Carl Koch, who was educated at Harvard when Bauhaus founder Walter Gropius took reign. Koch, perhaps best known as the "Grandfather of Prefab" in the U.S., pioneered the prefab Techbuilt System, which went on to sell over 3,000 packages by 1963. This house, now on the market for $849,000, is not a Techbuilt but one of the architect’s more classic midcentury-modern builds.

Clocking in at 2,072-square-foot, the home combines a natural material palette of redwood, glass, flagstone, and brick with soaring spaces and open sight lines.The open floor plan begins with a great hall and vaulted living room with a fireplace and glass walls, and flows right onto a dining room (also with a fireplace), bar area, and updated kitchen. Three bedrooms, including a master suite with sliding doors to a patio, round out the home. The house also offers storage and expansion potential in the lower level.
