Located on 135 acres in the Monadnock region of New Hampshire, this three-bedroom, three-bath midcentury modern offers a blend of 1950s style and the great outdoors. The home was built and designed in 1955 by architect Alexander James, Jr., a disciple of Germany’s inaugural modernist Walter Gropius.

The result is a building in line with many Bauhaus tenets; James designed a one-level, L-shaped structure without ornamentation that takes advantage of the picturesque setting. The 3,645-square-foot house features long horizontal lines and floor-to-ceiling windows facing an open meadow and trees.

James designed the original building as well as a 1970s addition that added a large master bedroom suite with dressing room, full bath, and sliders out to a deck that frames Mount Monadnock through its windows. The other two bedrooms are smaller but also feature large windows that make the space bright.

The sale also includes a large carriage house with a two-car garage and 1,242-square-foot guest space. The property originally came on the market in 2016 for $1.3M.

If a midcentury gem on over 100 acres sounds like your Bauhaus dream, 297 Upper Jaffrey Road is on the market now for $1,185,000.
