For those caught between the allure of midcentury architecture and the call of the great outdoors, fret no more, because this sprawling 1955 home with (second-hand) pedigree would more than satisfy both aspirations.

Designed by Alexander James, Jr., who once studied under Bauhaus founder Walter Gropius, the 3,645-square-foot three-bedroom sits on over 135 acres of private, rambling grounds in southwest New Hampshire and is surrounded by Mount Monadnock, Pack Monadnock, and Temple Mountain. It’s L-shaped, single-story open plan and east and south-facing walls of glass frame the vast landscape while also creating a cozy home environment.

Though the decor could use a little updating, its skeleton is strong on the details that make midcentury architecture so desirable. The property also includes a 1,242-square-foot two-bedroom carriage house with kitchen, dining and living rooms, and two-car garage. Located at 297 Upper Jaffrey in Dublin, it’s asking $1,310,000.
